“Play hard. You never know who’s watching you.”

Pre-Academy Coach, Red Bulls Pre-Academy: Anton McCafferty

"I am extremely proud of the work Dom has put in to gain this opportunity within our academy set up. He has a blend of being technically competent on the ball and always thinking positively to having a real desire and competitiveness in his play off the ball.

Dom is in the correct environment now to keep improving and take his game to the next level. Knowing his character and the support of his family around him, there’s no doubt in my mind that he will be an Academy player for years to come."

Academy Director, Red Bulls Academy: Sean McCafferty

"We are very pleased to officially add Dominick to our U12 Academy roster. Although Dominick is a younger player, he showed great bravery and self-belief in both training and games which certainly fits into our motto of if you are good enough, you are old enough.

Dominick follows in the footsteps of his older brother Jaylen who is a U13 Academy player but who also plays up a year currently with our U14 Academy and we believe both have a bright future here at New York Red Bulls Academy. The staff at the New York Red Bulls Pre-Academy have done a fantastic job to getting Dominick to this point and we look forward to playing in a part in the next stage of his journey."

U12 Academy Coach, Red Bulls Academy: Daniel Gutierrez

"Dom has always showed exciting quality and potential when signing for the Pre-Academy a year early. Coming through the ranks we are proud of his hard work and dedication to get this opportunity with the academy. 

Dom is player that perfectly suits our philosophy. His attacking mind-set and powerful running with the ball combined with his excellent counter pressing ability makes him an exciting prospect."
