Revolution Host Soccer Clinic at Jungleplex

The New England Revolution will host a five-stop Turf Tour at local sports facilities ahead of its 2013 home opener, Saturday, March 23. Each event will include a soccer clinic and player meet-and-greet opportunity.

Beginning Friday, Feb. 1, at the Wide World of Indoor Sports in North Kingstown, R.I., the tour will continue with four stops before the home opener: Wednesday, Feb. 27 (Norfolk, Mass.), Thursday, Feb. 28 (Plymouth, Mass.), Saturday, March 2 (New Bedford, Mass.) and Thursday, March 21 (Dorchester, Mass.).

Each event will contain two portions: a soccer clinic – held for a preselected group of local children – and an open-to-the-public Q&A and autograph session.

The clinic will be run by Revolution Academy coaches, featuring Revolution players as celebrity coaches. Following the clinic, the players will meet with fans and pose for photos and sign autographs for those in attendance. The Revolution’s mascot, Slyde, will also be at each event.

A full breakdown of each location is below:
