Revs Group Training Nights for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 5th Grade teams – Spring 2017

Group Training Night with the REVS for the Spring 2017 season will run midweek for our travel-team age groups (3rd Grade and older) at Mylod fields under the supervision of the New England Revolution coaches. They are designed to help players improve their individual technical skills, and use those skills in play within small groups in a game-like environment.

Group Night Training schedule for Spring 2017
Mondays; 3rd Grade teams
Tuesdays; 4th Grade teams
Wednesdays; 5th Grade teams
Thursdays; 6th Grade teams

The sessions are an hour and fifteen minutes in duration. Boys and girls run separately and this Fall 2016 season, the boys will run from 4.15-5.30pm, girls will run from 5.30-6.45pm. These times will be moved earlier as the season progresses to allow for daylight.

All travel team coaches from 3rd thru 6th grade teams are asked to bring their team to their age group’s designated practice night, use a Revs curriculum (provided in advance) and to lead their players through a practice – helping improve each player’s technical play – with the support of 2 Revs coaches.

Coaches may then sign up for a second team-specific practice – and may chose to continue to work on those skills, or tactical/team issues at their discretion.

The purpose is to improve the experience for players and coaches alike. Coaches do not need to develop a practice plan, but will be able to review the evening’s plan in advance (including online videos), and the players will learn skills, terminology and tactics as part of a natural progression.

Walpole team coaches (or assistant coaches) need to attend the Group Night practice and run their team through the curriculum. The REVS coaches are not there to do it for us, but to step in and demonstrate or offer guidance whenever helpful. Please arrive a few minutes early for Group Night to get set up and make full use of their expertise.

Spring 2016 – Boys Travel teams

The Walpole Youth Soccer boys travel teams for Spring 2016 have been attached below. Teams were formed on the basis of prior season evaluations, tryouts, number of players and volunteers registered. There is considerable turnover amongst the boys registered for teams from Fall to Spring (necessitating Boys tryouts in the Fall). The girls teams are essentially unchanged from the Fall. Emphasis is placed on creating teams of similar ability within each age group that will be competitive within the Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) leagues in which we participate. BAYS combines U13 & U14 into a single U14 age group to prepare players for the demands of high school soccer. Walpole Soccer follows this model, but will try to keep players playing with their peers wherever possible, to promote fun and active participation as long as possible. For a further explanation of how teams were chosen please refer to the “Programs” tab at the top of the home page and click on “Tryouts.”

Registration for ‘Fall Only 2016’ and ‘Fall 2016/Spring 2017’ (benefitting from our full-year discount) will open in early May and remain open until June 30th for all players going into 4th Grade through 8th Grade this Fall. Thereafter, Registration moves to Waitlist Status – players will be placed on rosters IF and when openings are available, and a late fee is charged. Registration is available through www.walpolesoccer.org – in the upper left hand corner of the home page.

Younger players – those going into 3rd Grade and below in the Fall will have longer to register, as their teams do not need to be registered with the BAYS travel league. The date Registration moves to Waitlist Status for players going into 3rd grade is Aug 1st. For those players going into Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade this Fall, Registration goes to Waitlist Status on Aug 15th.

All players wishing to tryout for 4th grade and older Select travel teams must be registered 24hrs prior to their tryout. The following dates are being used for tryouts the Fall 2016 teams, planned to be held at Mylod fields;

There are a significant number of concerts/recitals/camps/dinners/dances etc this Spring. Every effort has been made to avoid conflicts, but if you are aware of an event that will prevent a number of players from participating, please let one of the board members know as soon as possible.

All players wishing to play travel soccer in the Fall are encouraged to attend, and MUST be registered 24 hrs prior to their Tryout. Registration will open in early May at www.walpolesoccer.org and we suggest that players register for both Fall & Spring soccer to benefit from our 2 season discount – each season is priced individually, but by registering upfront for both seasons we offer a significant discount (which eliminates a huge amount of volunteers time to reprocess and re-register players and teams).

Full tryout details available at www.walpolesoccer.org – under the Tryouts link listed under the Programs menu listed at the top of the homepage.

There will be a parent information meeting night – for parents wishing to learn more about the tryout process – exact date and time TBD.


Players are asked to arrive 15 minutes early for their tryout to register, and wear shorts, cleats, shin pads and bring water and a ball to warm up. They will be provided 2 numbered shirts for the tryouts.

Tryouts are drop off only. We ask all parents to return 10minutes before the end of their player’s session for pick up.
.
Teams will be created based on coach’s evaluations from the prior season(s) and the results of the tryouts. Tryouts themselves only constitute a portion of the decision making. Other factors in determining the number of teams include the number of players registered, number of volunteer coaches and slots in the league.
.
Current 3rd grade parents – please be sure to register your players NOW! Spots for travel soccer in the 4th grade is restricted by the BAYS league’s registration system. You need to be registered before the June league deadline to play.
.
Current 6th & 7th grade parents – Decisions about blending players onto teams from each grade (for Fall u14 soccer) will not be made until the number of players and depth of competitiveness has been determined. We will use a ‘call back night’ to determine the best composition of teams and players. We will endeavor to keep everyone playing with friends from their grade, while providing opportunities for teams to plays as competitively as reasonable.
