In partnering with Brick Township Soccer Association, the Red Bulls Youth Programs will provide a complete club development program. Benefits will include onsite Red Bulls coaching staff, curriculum and RED Print access, player clinics, team training, coach education workshops, and training camps.
The grassroots partnership provides each club a unique opportunity to partner with a leading Major League Soccer team and benefit from an extensive range of youth soccer expertise.
The initiative will also help connect young players to the professional game. As part of the curriculum, players are actively encouraged to watch soccer games and, through a special offer, are provided with the opportunity to attend a live professional match at Red Bull Arena, a state-of-the-art soccer stadium, located in Harrison, N.J.
