PRACTICE/TRAINING:We practice on a Mon/Wed schedule in the late afternoon to allow girls to complete school activities and homework before practice. This Spring, players who would like a little extra training and opportunity for more play, have the option to practice on the Revolution Club scrimmage team on Fridays and some extra weekend scrimmages.
We take a month long winter break, and a six week long summer break, and we are usually off on major holidays. In the pre-season, the girls typically play a scrimmage a week. This past winter, some girls choose to participate in futsal for off-season training (at Futsal San Jose). Optional clinics and training are available throughout the year, as well, and many girls attend summer camps together. Players are expected to attend 80 percent of the team practices and games.
TEAM HISTORY: This team was formed in January 2012 when the original Revolution team split into the two teams that form this club. Coach Vinko has coached it from its inception. It began as a copper level team and has now moved up to Bronze. Coach Vinko is assisted by 2 parent assistant coach volunteers: Marca Lombardo and Lakshmi Sharma, and team manager Mabell Aguilar. There is nearly always at least one parent at practice.
Our next tournament will be the Spring 2013 District 2 Cup.
