About Revolution Soccer

If Revolution Soccer sounds like it might be a good fit for your child and your family, here is some more information you should know about us...

  • All San Marcos Revolution coaches are VOLUNTEERS!  Our coaches go through the same rigorous training and have the same coaching licenses as a coach in any other league.  We feel that the best coaches do it for the love of the game and for the best interest of the KIDS - and that’s what we get with dedicated volunteer coaches.  While our coaches are not paid for their time, they are reimbursed for required training and certification to be a Cal South competitive coach.
  • San Marcos Revolution registration fees for the 2013-14 season was only $450, thanks to our volunteer coaches.  This base fee covers Presidio fees, CalSouth insurance, uniforms, referees, trainers, and various league costs.  Tournaments and team gear/apparel are paid for by the players and the cost will vary by team.  League and team fundraisers are common to help cover these extra costs.
  • San Marcos Revolution employs the services of professional trainers to work with coaches and players throughout the season.  Each team receives a set number of training sessions each season which are unique to the teams’ needs and targets areas in which improvement is needed.  We have been fortunate to have the head coach of the Mission Hills High School boys’ soccer team, Jacob English and his crew of trainers working with our players and coaches over the past three years. 
  • San Marcos Revolution has grown from 3 teams in our first season to 6 in our second, and to 14 in our third.  Five of our fourteen teams took first place in their respective divisions with ten of the fourteen finishing in the top four of their division.  Our .600 winning percentage was by far best among San Marcos clubs, including those who claim to use “professional” coaches.  We are extremely proud of our players and their coaches and we look forward to watching each team develop over the coming years.  Click HERE to see our club summary on the Presidio website.
