RDS Seasonal Clinics

RDS Clinics in the spring, fall, and winter are comprised of one session per week for the duration of the season. Available at a range of indoor and outdoor facilities, each program is accessible by try out, and then offers six to eight weeks of training, depending on season duration.

RDS Futbolinho Program

Futbolinho is Red Bulls’ version of futsal, and comprises a fast-paced, small-sided curriculum that focuses on individual skills such as dribbling, skill moves, and turns.

Played with a low rebound, size 2 soccer ball, each player spends maximum contact time on the ball, therefore improving their confidence and composure while in possession.

The hardwood floor, enclosed walls, and continuous playing time all lead to a fast-paced game that improves a player’s reactions, agility, speed, and confidence in one versus one situations. 

The unrivaled ball contact time and ultra-small-sided games also mean that players are constantly in the action.

RDS Futbolinho offers a unique indoor training experience for high-level players looking for a new challenge. 

Each player participating in the program is provided their own Futbolinho ball, and is encouraged to use RDS homework scorecards and the Red Bulls' YouTube training tools to develop their skills in their own time.

Encouraging creativity is an essential part of the Futbolinho curriculum, and this concept is extended to the custom-made balls. Each player must customize their personal Futbolinho balls, and each week, the most creative design is posted to Red Bull New York's Twitter account. Recent winners can be found under #RDSFutbolinho.

As part of the RDS, any outstanding talents will earn recommendations for the full Showcase Tournament Teams, with the top prospects going on to the New York Red Bulls Academy
