At Revolution United FC we are passionate about the development of successful soccer players.
Our expert coaches guide and support our players during the different phases of development from nourishing the love for the game, to evolving their individual technical skill set and knowledge. Our coaches also help them to develop other life skills we believe essential to success like discipline, sportsmanship, respect, responsibility, self-esteem and friendship.
We strive not only to have the most competitive teams for each age category, but also the most respected and organized teams. After our players have graduated from the developmental stage, our main focus still remains on the individual player’s skill set and their role on the team, but gradually more focus is placed on competition and strategy.
We strive for excellence and our goal is to provide the best resources and guidance to allow players to excel in the proper environment in order to reach their highest potential both on a personal level and on a team level.
By developing individual players, their skills, their knowledge and passion for the game, and their significant role as a team player, we form strong competitive and successful teams and individuals.
Our goal is for these lessons to be used on and off the field so that they can apply them throughout their lives.
As players join the Revolution United FC program and work to achieve their goals and dreams, our RUFC team will be side by side with both players and families as they move through the different stages of this challenging and beautiful sport. Our family grows as you join Revolution United FC and become part of our Club.
Revolution’s internal network continues to grow as we partner up with other prestigious organizations to give our players and their families the best soccer experience. We want our people to feel proud to be part of one of the greatest premier soccer organizations.
During the beginning stages of our program, we focus on the development of the individual and the individual skill necessary to be a successful player and teammate. At this stage it is not just about winning or losing. Success is measured in the improvement of the player’s individual technical ability and increased knowledge.
During practices we train on fundamental skills and then we encourage our players to continue to practice on their own. In order to be great at any skill it requires practice.
As the players continue to develop, player’s positions and their role on the team becomes more emphasized. Progressively higher skills, speed, formations and strategy are introduced to ultimately yield successful competitive teams and team players.
If you are looking for a premier soccer program that celebrates your style of play and challenges you to become even better, contact us about our ongoing tryouts.

Marcos has an impressive soccer resume. He is a 2006 graduate of Iona College and a four-year soccer letterman. He was also team captain during his senior season and was awarded "Gael of the Year" in 2006.
As the coach of Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, NY (2009-2012), Marcos led the Gaels to three consecutive division championships from 2009 to 2011, in addition to a CHSAA City Championship in 2010 and CHSAA State Championship in 2009, both the first in school history.

Come and spend a night of soccer with Revolution and the Fairfield University Staggs and help us raise funds for "The Cancer Couch Foundation", founded by a member of our Revolution Family Rebecca Scalera. Rebecca is the mother of Luca Scalera, a U10 player, who was diagnosed with stage 3c breast cancer at the start of last year's season. As she was going through and researching treatment, she learned that very little, if any funding goes to metastatic breast cancer research. Metastatic breast cancer is the deadliest form of breast cancer with no successful treatment options and no cure.Rebecca has since been on a mission to change this grim fact and has gone so far as to start her own foundation, "The Cancer Couch Foundation" which raises money solely for metastatic breast cancer research. 100% of funds raised are donated directly to specific doctors performing research and Sloan Kettering and Dana Faber have both agreed to match all funds raised, which is incredible.
The clinic is open to all male and female youth players. Revolution players must wear their uniforms (red jerseys, white shorts and white socks). There will be an opportunity for Revolution United FC players to escort Fairfield University players on to the field and scrimmage during half time!
Let's all come together and show your Revolution spirit and help support this noble cause. See you Saturday!!!
