Players aged 8 to 14, should first apply for a try-out in the Regional Development Schools (RDS). This satellite based, supplementary training program allows players to enter the Red Bulls Player development system at a younger age, and within their own communities. Here players receive the technical instruction and support required to provide them with a more seamless transition into the full Academy teams, when they reach an eligible age.
