RDS Talent Centers offer cost-free supplementary training programs to underserved areas with a high concentration of talented youth soccer players.
Typically featuring six weeks of training, one night per week, the sessions operate the RDS curriculum and provide access to the same features and benefits*, including:
- High-level, technical, individual training with a low player-coach ratio
- Eligibility for RDS Winter and Summer Showcase teams
- Assessment for RDS Pre-Academy teams
- Consideration for Red Bulls Academy teams
*Note: Participation in an RDS Talent Center does not include a full written evaluation, which are only provided in the RDS clinics and RDS Residential Camps.
Talent Centers are currently being offered in partnership with the following clubs:
