PRACTICE/TRAINING:
Revolution 99G practices on a Monday/Wednesday schedule this Fall; practices are two hours. The Field Girls are asked to make the commitment to try to attend at least 70% of practices. There is a game or scrimmage most weekends.The team generally does 2-3 tournaments/year, but has done less this Fall since the player focus has been on college applications. We will likely play at least 2 tournaments in Spring 2018, as a result. We have a good, mutually supportive, club relationship with our sister West Valley teams, and our players occasionally guest to help each other teams as needed.We will break for the high school soccer season after November 12, 2017, and will restart club practices at the beginning of March 2018. During the winter high school season, you can find our players on the varsity soccer teams at these schools for the 2017/2018 high school soccer season:

WHO THE PLAYERS ARE: The current Revolution 99G team is a blend of long time Revolution players, and Surf Girl players since both teams had seniors graduating last year; these two teams played together frequently over the past couple years, so the transition has been fairly smooth.

The girls have a diverse group with a wide range of family backgrounds and interests. They come from a number of different schools including: Cupertino, Fremont, TeamLunchHarker, Homestead, Lincoln, Lynbrook, Monta Vista, Oak Grove, Saratoga, Santa Clara, and Willow Glen High School. Although soccer is a common interest, many of our players also participate in other activities, including community service, band & orchestra, leadership, robotics, math and science competitions, and even other sports, including badminton, field hockey, lacrosse, track and cross country, and water polo. Nearly all of our players are strong students, enrolled in AP and honors classes – school work always comes first on this team. All players are planning to attend college after graduating high school.

SOCIALS: West Valley is a family-oriented league and Revolution has always followed that tradition. HikeThere is usually one or two family events per season, e.g., a potluck, picnic, community service event, etc. The girls often organize social activities like the color run, hikes, camping, potlucks, movies, and more. The team has also done fun soccer events such as Earthquakes 4v4, Santa Cruz beach soccer, and Sonoma 6v6.
PlayFEES/FUNDRAISING: Each family pays a monthly fee that covers general team expenses such as coaching fees, field rental, balls, nets and other various supplies needed for coaching. Uniforms, league fees and tournament travel require additional costs. There is some needs-based scholarship help.
VOLUNTEERING: Each team family contributes time to help the team in some way. SadhanaHikariLia Some volunteer positions include social coordinator, travel coordinator, fundraising coordinator, team manager, assistant coaches, and treasurer.
