David Longwell, Academy Director
The New York Red Bulls Academy aspires to be the elite soccer development program in the United States. The Academy has been recognized for the success of its teams at all levels. However, player development is, and always will be, the main goal.
The Academy believes in playing, entertaining, and encouraging players to be creative. By learning through the game players are able to reach their full potential. Athletes selected into the Academy must have the attitude and drive to play at the highest level of the game, both nationally and internationally.
The New York Red Bulls Academy staff makes it a priority to mentor these young men into well rounded pillars of the community.
