We have a team for you. We offer three different types of programs: Jr. Academy, BAYS Travel, and Revolution Youth Academy Select Travel. These programs are based on age and grade. The Jr. Academy and Travel programs do not take into account the skill level of players other than to group the children into the best development environment possible.
Children that are in Pre-K through 2nd Grade who will turn at least 5 years old during the school year, will play in our Jr. Academy League.
These programs are development focused and are coached by professional New England Revolution Youth Academy Coaches assisted by NSC Parent Coaches.
Practices are held each Tuesday & Thursday 5PM-6PM for (8) weeks typically at the High Street fields.
Games for Grades 1&2 are on Saturday mornings, typically at the AMVET fields. Start times are either 8:30 AM or 9:30 AM. The games consist of (2) twenty minute halves. The season consists of (8) games.
Games for Grades PK-K are held as scrimmages / small-sided games at the end of each practice.
BAYS Travel Teams
Children that are entering the 3rd Grade through 8th grade are eligible to play for NSC in the BAYS Travel League. Our 3rd Grade – 8th Grade teams are coached once a week (Fall & Spring) by New England Revolution Youth Academy coaches along with Club coaches. Winter practices are less frequent due to limited facility availability. Children can elect to sign up for Fall, Winter, Spring. There is no full-year commitment, and each season (Fall/Winter/Spring) new teams are formed based on signups for that season.
BAYS offers divisions in single year Grade groups for Grade 3 - Grade 6 and a combined Grade 7/8 Group. While we endeavor to field single grade teams for each group, due to the number of signups as well as the relative skill level of players signed up we will from time to time combine grade groups into Grade 3/4 and Grade 5/6 in order to put teams into the best development environment possible.
Practices for Travel Teams are twice a week, scheduled by the coaches once teams are announced. One practice is led by a Revolution Academy coach while the second practice is led by your NSC volunteer coach. Each practice is for 1 hour.
Games are on Saturdays per BAYS league schedule guidelines. Girls teams start in the morning with kick-offs typically at 9:00 AM, 10:30 AM and 11:45 AM. Boys teams start in the afternoon with kick-offs typically at 1:00, 2:30 and 4:00. Games can be up to an hour away depending on league placement but are usually within about a 30-minute drive or closer.
NSC / NE Revolution Youth Academy Select Travel Teams
Since the fall of 2017 NSC has been fielding Select Teams that are coached exclusively by New England Revolution Youth Academy Coaches.
For the 2020-2021 season, we have grown the program to:
2x 5th-6th-grade girls’ team
1x 5th-6th boys’ team
2x 7/8th-grade girls' team
1x 7/8th-grade boys' team
A total of 6 teams, up from 2 teams for our inaugural 2017-18 season. The number of Revs Teams will vary each year depending upon a variety of factors.
These teams are selected by top New England Revolution Academy Coaches. Tryout information is provided prior to our annual tryouts that typically take place in May. This information is provided via Club-wide email and an informational meeting that typically takes place in February.
Revs teams still practice in North Attleboro and continue to play in BAYS. These teams require a two season commitment (fall and spring) and also include reasonable minimum attendance requirements; however, our goal is to assist families in meeting their multisport/multiactivity goals. We do not "punish" players for enrolling in other sports and activities.
Practices for NSC/NE Revolution Youth Academy Select Travel Teams are twice a week, scheduled by the coaches once teams are announced. Both practices are with a designated full time Revolution Academy coach and run for 1 1/2 hours.
Games are on Saturdays per BAYS league schedule guidelines, coached by the teams full time designated Revolution Academy Coach. Away games can be up to an hour away depending on league placement but are usually within about a 30-minute drive or closer.
