The Revolution Academy is an elite player development program that provides the region’s top youth player unprecedented access to the Major League Soccer (MLS) and United Soccer League (USL) youth development pathway. The Academy youth teams are fully-funded by the New England Revolution. Tryout opportunities for our MLS Academy teams for the 2020/2021 season will be hosted at Gillette Stadium on a date to be determined.

Residency Program

Launched in 2019, the Academy Residency Program allows selected players to live full-time on-site. Supervised by Academy staff, residency players benefit from living a short walk to Gillette Stadium and the Revolution Training Center. Players are able to take advantage of the Audi Performance Center located at the Academy Residency House and have the added benefits of supplemental field and gym sessions with increased access to first and second team training sessions. In addition to soccer responsibilities, residency players are enrolled in an online high school. Their progress is closely monitored by Academy staff.
