Academy Update | U17s, U15s, and U14s travel for doubleheaders in NY/NJ

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Three New England Revolution Academy teams continued their fall campaigns over the weekend with double headers in New York and New Jersey. The Under-17s, Under-15s, and Under-14s visited New York Soccer Club in Purchase, N.Y. on Saturday, before facing off with Cedar Stars Academy – Bergen in Ridgefield Park, N.J. on Sunday.

All four academy teams will conclude the fall season on the weekend of Nov. 23, when the U-19s visit Players Development Academy in Somerset, N.J., the U-17s, and U-15s visit New York City FC at St. John's University in Queens, N.Y., and the U-14s host World Class FC in Lancaster, Mass.

The latest Revolution Academy product to graduate to New England’s first team, 16-year-old Damian Rivera, also returns to action this week with the U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team. The Cranston, R.I. native is in the midst of his first international camp after becoming the club’s seventh Homegrown Player signing on Nov. 8, 2019.
