Scott Emmens is in his first season as the equipment manager of the New England Revolution, having joined the team in the off-season. Emmen’s responsibilities include ordering and maintaining the team's uniforms, practice gear and equipment, and overseeing the game day equipment staff that assists in both the Revs' and visitors' locker rooms and on the field. He also works closely with the technical staff on setting up and equipping training sessions both at home and on the road.
Emmens came to the Revolution with a background in retail and equipment management. He spent the 2010 season with the Chicago Red Stars, formerly of Women’s Professional Soccer, as the team’s equipment and practice facility manager before the team suspended operations at the conclusion of the season. He was responsible for maintaining the team’s equipment and practice facility, while assisting with various aspects of the front office’s operations.
Following his stint with the Red Stars, Emmens re-located to Seattle, where he gained experience in the retail industry, most recently at Schmetzer’s Sporthaus, a successful chain of stores specializing in soccer-specific gear and merchandise in the Seattle area.
A Wethersfield, Conn., native, Emmens earned his undergraduate degree in sports management from Endicott College in 2009. During his college studies, Emmens worked as an on-site camp administrator with SoccerPlus Camps in Hartford, Conn., for both overnight and day camps, assisting with the sessions’ operations.
