Q: 1. What is the Red Bulls Player Development System?
A:

The Red Bulls Player Development System consists of three (3) main levels which ultimately feed players into the Red Bulls 1st team. Level four (4) is at the base of the pyramid, and consists of our grassroots training programs, providing valuable services to many local youth soccer organizations. Level three (3) of the pyramid represents our Regional Development Schools (RDS) which consists of a number of satellite locations, strategically spread throughout NY and NJ. The RDS is supplementary, advanced, individual training, accessible by tryout only. Level two (2) is the academy, which consists of a number of elite teams between the ages of U14 to U19, all of whom play US Club Academy.

Q: 2. What level of the Player Development System will I be working in?
A:

The vast majority of our seasonal coaching staff will work with players within our grassroots training programs. This will involve working with player’s aged 4 – 16 years, all of whom are of mixed ability. Skill levels will range from working with complete beginners to players who need to be challenged at an advanced level. There will be opportunities for coaches who show a high level of ability and experience to progress through the player development system and work within the Regional Development School programs. These opportunities are typically only available after working within the grassroots training programs.

back to top


Q: 3. What level of players will I be working with?
A:

The level of play within youth soccer organizations is typically categorized into two levels. ‘Recreational’ players are beginners, whilst ‘travel team’ players are considered a more serious level of player. Coaches will work with both levels, and in general the major focus is spent on teaching the basic fundamental skills of the game.  We always attempt to place coaches with the level of players that they prefer to work with, however it must be stressed that all coaches at some point will be required to spend time working with our younger players, who are complete beginners to the game. Typically coaches will work with beginner level players for at least 4-5 hours per week.

After the first day, campers should arrive 15 minutes prior to the camp start time so that they are ready to start the session on time.

After the first day, campers will go straight to their individual groups.  It is important that you ensure your child knows your coaches name and reports to the correct group before you leave.

When picking up campers, we do not allow parents to remain in their car and have campers walk to them. You must park, come to the pick up point to collect your child and sign out.

back to top


Q: What do I do if I need to pick up my child early?
A:

Please notify your child's coach at morning drop-off and provide them with a written note in order for your child to be ready for you when you arrive. You must personally go to your child’s group, make yourself known to the coach, and collect your child before they can be signed out.

back to top


Q: What if I need someone other than myself to pick my child up?
A:

Please provide a signed note with the full name of the person you authorize to pick up your child. This should be given to your child’s coach on the morning of the pick-up.
