The Alton Rec Soccer Player of the Week for Week 5 goes to ALEXA GAVILL of Jalbert Contracting 1/2 Nielsen.
Coach Nielsen says
This week she hustled on offense and defense. She passed well and demonstrated great communication with her team!
Congratulations Alexa! You will receive an exclusive player of the week t-shirt from your coach!
The Barnstead Rec Soccer Player of the Week for Week 5 goes to STEPHEN RAWNSLEY of S. Morris Electric 5/6 Guptill.
Coach Guptill says
It was very tough to choose just one player because the whole team played so good. They passed between each other making the defense spread out allowing the offence to score. Stephen played extremely hard from the first whistle to the last, making sure the ball stayed in the other teams side of the field.. I wish I could nominate a couple of the other players, but I can only choose one.
Congratulations Stephen! You will receive an exclusive player of the week t-shirt from your coach!
The Barnstead Rec Soccer Player of the Week for Week 4 goes to KAYDEN BUFFUM of Pike Industries 1/2 Sheets.
Coach Sheets says
Kayden is a natural at playing defense for his team. He plays a solid middle defense and he also plays goalie for his team. Kayden didn't miss a shot on him in goalie this past Saturday and he didn't let not one soccer ball by him in the middle. He has a great attitude at every game and he comes ready to defend for his team every weekend. He is a pleasure to coach and absorbs everything we teach him on the field. We look forward to seeing him play at future games and grow even stronger playing defense or even goalie in the future. Congratulations Kayden!
Congratulations Kayden! You will receive an exclusive player of the week t-shirt from your coach!
The Alton Rec Soccer Player of the Week for Week 4 goes to MACKENZIE COUTURE of Lakeside Smiles Pediatric Dentistry 1/2 Stanley.
Coach Stanley says
Mackenzie does a great job on both offense and defense. She gets to the ball quickly and has been working hard on making good passes to her teammates. Her team can always count on her to get the ball upfield.
Congratulations Mackenzie! You will receive an exclusive player of the week t-shirt from your coach!
The Alton Rec Soccer Player of the Week for Week 3 goes to AYDEN PORTER of Alton Country Store's 5/6 Stanley.
Coach Casale says
Ayden has been working at goalie off and on for a few years. This year he’s been starting on the 5/6 team and has been doing a great job. This weekend he had 3 or 4 amazing stops on hard shot balls. Ayden only had 1 ball get by him all day and he nearly stopped it by diving and getting a hand in it. The ball just has enough to roll into the net after his attempt. Great job Ayden.
Congratulations Ayden! You will receive an exclusive player of the week t-shirt from your coach!
The Barnstead Rec Soccer Player of the Week for Week 3 goes to SPENCER RUSSO of Pike Industries 1/2 Sheets.
Coach Sheets says
Spencer is an amazing soccer player. Week after week he comes to the games ready to play and with a passion to play soccer. This past Saturday, he scored a few goals for his team while playing offense and also saving a few goals playing goalie. He is a competitive soccer player already at this age and we look forward to watching him get even better at the next games.
Congratulations Spencer! You will receive an exclusive player of the week t-shirt from your coach!
Coming back after the COVID-19 break from last spring, Coach Jayme Kennedy's team has been ready to get on the field together and based on this season's results, they haven't missed a beat.
"The kids have come ready to play every day. They're hungry and eager to put in the effort it takes to win games," said the Head Coach.
After much of the state took last spring season off, nobody knew when they next time teams would be back on the fields again. Having gone through an adjusted school soccer schedule to keep travel and contact to a minimum, some teams went back to their indoor seasons. However, like many would express, the spring soccer season was still missed by coaches, players and fans. The U14 Revs team has come back strong with a current record of 4 Wins, 1 Tie and 0 losses.
"Starting the season 4-0-1 in a tough division is a great way to start any season. Our offense has put together some great opportunities in the first four games leading to 15 goals. I've been very happy with our defensive play and our goalies have been able to handle the task of seeing some tough shots from our opponents," coach Kennedy said.
"Jayme and his players have come out strong again this season. There is no doubt the players are bought into Coach Kennedy's style of play and they are showing it on the field," said Cory Halvorsen, Executive Director for Revolution United. "With just 3 games left in the regular season I am sure we will continue to see them at the top of the table going into playoff weekend."
The remaining games will continue to be a challenge heading into the back half and nowhere to let down against some very talented teams in the league.
"Three games left so that means 3 tough opponents left. We're taking it one game at a time with a goal to make playoffs," said Kennedy. "I want to see the kids keep being relentless and working hard. Keep playing together as a team and have that never give up attitude."
The Rev's are scheduled to play in Derry, who is currently the number 2 seed, after the Memorial Day Weekend break.

"This is something that has required a lot of careful planning and consideration, and know it is the right step in continuing to move Revolution United in the direction to offer programs for all players no matter their skill level."
Revolution United has been known in the area as primarily a soccer club that was established in 2011, and has since grown into multiple sports all with the same mission. Providing an opportunity for players to play a sport that they love no matter their skill level or financial situation. With many opportunities available, there are registrations that fit all of the needs of someone's current situation. The club has maintained this same policy throughout the past 10 years it has been established and to try and give as many opportunities to the community as possible.
With the expansion with Elite Sports Academy, Revolution United will continue to look at ways to increase participation in all of the sports that are offered and make Epsom just another location where the community can be served.
“We are very excited to announce this partnership with Revolution United and Elite Sports Academy (ESA). The Revs are best in class in the soccer world and having them call Elite Sports Academy their home solidifies ESA as providing the youth in the area with not only a top notch facility, but also quality programs to develop as athletes in various sports.” said James Christie, President Elite Sports Academy

Program Director, Lucas Therrien will be taking on the role of league operations as well as the regular day to day for the Revolution organization.

REVS 3V3 NATIONAL TEAM: From L-R: Makenzy Holden, Jordan Whittier, Reilly Gray, Autumn Sheets, Makayla Richard, Gabby Clark
Alton, NH - As the remote learning school season starts winding down, seniors are not practicing their graduation walk, but are thinking about what they will wear while sitting in their cars waiting to be called up as they graduate Friday May 29 from Prospect Mtn High School. Prospect will still give the graduates a ceremony, one that will look much different than in years past; in fact, much difference than ever.
While many seniors are left with some sadness, the loss of prom, senior trip, cookouts and yearbook signings, they have also made so many memories with their friends and classmates. While some of these things may have been taken away this year, nobody can ever take away the championships won, the songs sung, the winter carnival days, the bus rides home from Berlin, or the cold games where you need to remind yourself why you still play soccer. These will always be a part of you and a part of growing up.
Two of our seniors were on the 3v3 National team this year participating in New Hampshire & Massachusetts, futsal in Maine and were supposed to head to Orlando, Florida in April. This was just one of the cancellations thanks to COVID-19. Both seniors, Reily Gray and Gabby Clark always showed true excitement for this team and the trip that was upcoming. Making many memories along the way, some hard practices, some fun times, some nicknames for coaches and of course lots of laughs. They were deserving of the trip to Florida not only based on their skill, but for their leadership, dedication, encouragement and drive.
With that, we would like to say Congratulations to our seniors from our 3v3 team. Reily and Gabby, you will both do amazing things in life and you will be missed at the Revs!
