Alton, NH - Revolution United is about halfway through the Spring Season in the NH Soccer League. This season has been filled with new opportunities and new challenges for many teams.
One new addition to Revolution’s Spring lineup is the 2008 Boys Panther Elite team. Through the partnership with Revs and Panther Elite, Revolution United was able to provide an opportunity for the Concord-based team to participate in the NHSL. Their season got off to a slow start, according to Coach Bernard. “Our first game, we were missing many starters including our goalie due to vacation” Bernard explained. “Since then, the team has rallied together and is building enormous momentum.”
Coach Kennedy of the 2007 Boys has been off to a fantastic start to the season. They currently sit first place in U15 Division 2. They look to defend their title from last year as Division 3 champions, against some new competition of players that they haven’t faced before. They face the challenge of their next two games being against the number two and three seed in their division. Coach Kennedy believes that one of the keys to success is practicing how you play. “Practices have gone well… I have really liked what I have seen from the players. We like to keep practices competitive as possible as it helps prepare them for the competitive games we play.”
2003 Girls will look forward to getting their season started up on May 20th after a few canceled games that they were preparing for. Despite the late start, Coach Flood has been practicing each week to make sure that the High School girls are ready for when the time comes.
Coach Perry of the 2003 Boys has been working towards getting his team up in the ranks. Assisted by Coach Mahoney and Coach M. Perry, they look to have their players improve each week as they once did when they played for Revolution United.
Alton, NH- Revolution United is proud to announce their new partnership with Panther Elite. Panther Elite is not just another team, they are a special group in which all play for their teammates and to have fun. Coached by Patrick Bernard, he is known for being heavily involved with helping his players in all situations of their life on and off the field.
Just over a month ago, Coach Bernard met Revolution United Program Director, Lucas Therrien at Fieldhouse Sports while playing a U12 boys matchup. During the game, while the players from both teams were competing on the field, members from each club were talking off the field about future development of their players and the opportunities that may be presented to them. Coach Bernard expressed his desire for his players to be able to compete in the spring season of competitive soccer with the New Hampshire Soccer League.
“I am excited about this new partnership with Panther Elite, and bringing Revolution United into Concord,” said Cory Halvorsen, Executive Director and Founder of Revolution United. “It has been a long time since other competition was available in the Concord area and surrounding towns all while keeping the cost affordable so the sport that is enjoyed all around the world by anyone that wants to play, can also be enjoyed locally with no obstacles.”
Coach Bernard has many ambitions for his players and their enthusiasm for the game. Over 17 players will take the field this spring to compete in their division with the support of everyone around them.
“What Coach Bernard and Lucas have been able to do in such a short period of time, will leave a lasting memory for each of these players who are a part of something special and a movement within soccer in New Hampshire,” said Halvorsen.
Panther Elite and Revolution United have already enjoyed training sessions together at Elite Sports Academy, the official training facility for Revolution United, with many more opportunities to come.
“I am thrilled to see where this new partnership will go with Coach Bernard at the helm,” said Therrien. “After talking with Coach, there was a definite need for this team to be playing spring soccer, and a need within the city to open up competitive soccer opportunities to families of all ages, genders and financial situations,” Therrien continued, “We have been in talks with future programs and events that we would collaborate on to expend the helping hand mentality that Coach has. It is rare to find someone so willing to help out the community in the way he does.”

Alton, NH- Revolution United are excited to announce Coach Joe Perry will be leading the High School Boys U19 team this Spring! Coach Perry started his coaching career locally as the Junior Varsity Boys Coach at Prospect Mountain High School. Not long after that, he was coaching Liverpool’s Youth International Academy team in Los Angeles. Perry has obtained his Grassroots 11v11 coaching licensing through US Soccer.
Perry comes with a great deal of soccer knowledge. “I was lucky enough to play for Revolution United for 5 years. During that time, I was surrounded by excellent teammates and coaches that helped me grow on and off the field,” Coach Perry said.
After winning a state championship with the Prospect Mountain Varsity squad, he played college soccer, followed by playing semi-pro for the New Hampshire Rapids.
As a player turned coach, Perry understands different aspects of the modern game. “As a coach I think it's important to have clear expectations for your players and yourself. Once you have that down, you need to have the ability to communicate those expectations clearly, so you can hold your players accountable and they can do the same for you,” Perry stated when asked about what his coaching philosophy was.
“This is the next step we wanted to take to elevate the player experience within the U19 division,” said Lucas Therrien, Program Director. “To not only have a chance to learn from someone with a vast knowledge of the sport, but also learn from a positive role model on and off the field who will encourage fair play, sportsmanship, all while working together as a team.”
Coach Perry looks forward to what the future can hold for his team and the players within the club. “I'm excited to see my players take their next steps in their soccer careers. Whether that be moving on to college, or stepping up their skill level, there are few things more rewarding as a coach than seeing your players improve.”
Improvement is a very important focus for Perry, as he looks to prepare his players for their futures. Beyond that, Coach Perry has also expressed interest in 1-on-1 sessions for all ages, as well as clinics for all of Revolution United’s players. Keep an eye out for more information regarding potential sessions with Coach Perry!
Cheer on the 2003 Boys team this Spring as they look to take on the Varsity North division of the NHSL.

Throughout this Winter, she has coached her own U12 boys soccer team for both sessions, while coaching for two recreational basketball teams as well. Her commitment to the club has extended as she will step up this Spring to coach the 2010 Boys Advance team.
When asked what Coach Susca looked forward to this Spring, she responded with “Developing players skills and confidence.” She would like to not only focus on the technicality of each player, but how to make them confident in their own abilities. The more confident each player is, the better performance they will put out.
Susca is further developing her coaching philosophy by joining our competitive staff. She received her Grassroots 9v9 Certification recently after going through the required training courses. Coach Susca talked about the morale that she wants to encourage her team to have this Spring. “Practice as a team, play as a team. Positive attitudes make for positive experiences” Susca says. Keeping her team positive is one of the main parts of her personal coaching philosophy. She enjoys getting to know each and every player, and watching them all become a team as the season moves on.
