The Red Bulls RDS Summer day camps schedule is now available online, offering aspiring young soccer players ages 7 to 14 the only opportunity to participate in the popular pre-academy feeder system without first attending a tryout.
RDS summer day camps run from Monday to Friday, and offer five days of intense, individual technical instruction. All applicants should be an experienced travel team player, and be prepared to work on advanced techniques geared toward the committed athlete.
Each RDS camp location offers a daily skills test, to provide specific feedback on a player’s strengths and challenges. All RDS summer camp participants will also test their ability on a range of techniques such as dribbling, passing, control and shooting, and will be offered an end of week score which ranks them against some of the areas top talents.
As part of the RDS, all participants will earn eligibility for the showcase tournament teams, with the outstanding talents earning recommendations for the Academy teams. On camp, all players receive an adidas RDS t-shirt, an adidas soccer ball, and a homework scorecard to aid long-term player development.
