Below you will find a detailed description of each step in your child’s development as a soccer player. You
can be confident that GNA Director of Coaching, David Fairchild, and Revolution FC’s entire training staff
will provide your soccer playing son or daughter a challenging, fun, and safe environment. This environment
is crafted from knowledge gained over many years, knowledge and ideals which put player first and use The
United States Soccer Federation’s guidelines for optimal player advancement as a core building block.
The first step in the development of the player in the GNA Revolution FC is:
GNA Revolution FC
Revolution Junior’s: Revolution Junior’s (U5-U10)
If your child is taking part in Revolution Junior’s (U5-U10) once weekly program designed to introduce
player to ball, you can be certain that fundamental individual skills will be at the heart of each session. There
are no tryouts for the Revolution Junior’s program. GNA, its Director of Coaching and staff, have put the
Junior’s program together to go foot in boot with the local recreational leagues. Continued participation on
local recreational teams is not just encouraged by GNA and its coaches, it is highly recommended. Go to for seasonal registration option.
The next step within the GNA Revolution FC is the: GNA Build A Player Academy (U8-U10)
This program was designed for the young soccer player who is looking for a new challenge. Activities will
follow the US Soccer Federation and US Youth Soccer module of teaching advanced technique in a
competitive environment. Players will be asked to attend a tryout with no cuts. Teams will participate in the
MOSSL academy formatted league. Licensed volunteer parents will help support game maintenance,
including warm up activities and substitutions.
Time commitment expectations for the GNA Build A Player Academy are:
2 to 3 events a week during the fall (beginning in mid August, ending in mid October).
2 to 3 events a week during the spring (Beginning in March, ending in May).
Once a week OPTIONAL training beginning in November and ending in January.
Our third step here at the GNA Revolution FC is: GNA Revolution FC (U11-U14)*
The U11-U14 teams within the club will be trained by a professional GNA staff coach. The staff coach will
also oversee league and tournament game play. These coaches will be assigned to teams by the clubs Director
of Coaching, David Fairchild. Training sessions will require the ability to perform individual skills learned in
the GNA BAP Academy. Problem solving in real time, during practice sessions and games, will be stressed.
The introduction of combination play thru 2v1 & 3v1 activities will require each player to have advanced
technical abilities. Teams will participate in local leagues/tournaments appropriate for their level of play.
Time commitment expectations for the U11-U14 age groups are:
2 to 4 team events a week during the fall (beginning in August, ending in October).
2-4 team events during the spring (Beginning in February, ending in May).
Once a week OPTIONAL indoor training will be offered beginning November-end
The final step in the development of the player is: GNA Revolution FC Senior’s (U15-U18)*
Our Senior’s program is an advanced program designed to prepare high school players for their school
program. Highly qualified staff coaches will lead all training sessions. Sessions will be designed to develop a
player’s tactical awareness of how to play the game. Teams will be comprised of players focused on taking
their game to the next level. Whether that be making their Junior varsity, Varsity high school team, or earning
a college scholarship. Teams will combine state and regional level league play with nationally ranked
tournaments to ensure continued player development. Time commitment expectation is: 3-4 team events a
week starting at the beginning of February and ending in mid June.
Interested players must try out to be considered for any GNA Revolution FC team.
Teams will be formed with the goal of creating the best environment for player

with teams from around the region.
Winter … Depending on the age level and team, there may be formal off-season training or participation in an
