Program Overview

The New York Red Bulls Regional Select is a new initiative that provides high-level travel players with an opportunity to join a Red Bull Select Team. Teams are formed via tryout and operate during the summer and winter seasons, allowing players to stay with their club teams while experiencing additional supplementary training and competitive tournament play in a club-neutral setting.

Select teams are operated at five regional sites through NY and NJ, providing easy access for players throughout the metro area. Featuring six weeks of training and three high-level tournaments, the summer program allows players an opportunity to meet like-minded athletes and compete in a fun and challenging environment all summer long without the need for extensive travel every week.

Regional Select offers an alternative pathway into the Red Bulls RDS Showcase teams, which ultimately feed the Red Bulls Pre-academy and Academy platforms. Play occurs exclusively in the off-season to ensure minimal conflicts with a player’s regular travel team commitment.

Subject to acceptance following try-out, features and benefits of the Regional Summer Select program include:

  • Six 90-minute weekly training sessions
  • Two weekend-long tournaments
  • Regional Select Festival at Red Bulls Training Facility
  • Regional Select practice jersey
  • Full Regional Select game day uniform*
