RDS Summer Day Camps
During the summer, the RDS offers advanced soccer players the opportunity to join Red Bulls pre-academy feeder system without first attending a try out.
Featuring the same great coaches and advanced individual curriculum, RDS camps offer the same competitive environment for advanced soccer players, but on a more flexible and accessible basis.
Camp benefits include:
- Five days of intense, individual technical instruction, Monday through Friday
- All players should be experienced travel team players, and should be prepared to work on advanced techniques aimed at the serious soccer player
- As part of the Regional Development School, all RDS participants will earn eligibility for the RDS showcase tournament teams, with the outstanding talents earning recommendations for the full Academy teams
- All players receive an RDS training T-shirt and a soccer ball
- No try-out necessary, and available on an open-registration basis.
RDS Residential Camps
RDS Residential (or sleep-away) Camps offer a unique opportunity for players to immerse themselves in the RDS soccer experience both night and day.
Staffed by the recognized RDS coaches, these advanced soccer camps feature highly demanding on and off-field experiences. In addition to a high level of play, campers are held accountable to the standards of personal behavior that help to mold a successful soccer player and potential academy candidate.
As our most popular programs, many Residential Camp options are fully booked as early as the beginning of Spring. New applications must attend a try-out to earn their space on camp; existing and returning RDS participants are pre-approved for their camp of choice.

Registration process for pre-qualified players:
Existing RDS participants are pre-approved for all RDS residential camps, and are waived the try-out process. Any player who has participated in a try-out based RDS at any point over the past 18 months may register for their chosen RDS residential camp immediately, without the need for additional assessment.
Qualifying programs include the try-out-based spring, fall, and winter RDS clinics, and try-out-based RDS Residential Summer Camps. Participation in an open registration RDS summer day camp does not pre-qualify a player for these camps.
