The New England Revolution announces team rosters

GREATER SPRINGFIELD The New England Revolution has announced the rosters for the 2010-11 Under-16 and Under-18 youth teams, as selected by the youth development coaching staff during regional try-outs in June and July.

On this year's squads are two local-area athletes. Daniel Chmura of Wilbraham was selected to the Under-18 roster and Will Szostkiewiez was named to the Under-16 team.

Coming off the 2009-10 season which saw both teams qualify for the U.S. Soccer Development Academy playoffs for the first time in the program's brief two-year history, the upcoming year's squads are highlighted by multiple returning players,a including eight members of the Under-18 team and one member of the Under-16 team who are entering their third year in the Revs' youth system.

"This year's tryouts were very successful and we had more than 300 players come out," Revolution Director of Youth Development Karl Edmonds said. "After a very successful 2009-10 season, our players have had the experience of qualifying for the playoffs. Now our goal is to take the next step and advance to the national finals."

In total, 45 players from the New England region were selected for the Revolution's youth squads, 22 for the Under-18 team and 23 for the Under-16 team. Edmonds and his staff added 22 new players, including 15 at the U16 age group and seven at the U18 level.
