HARRISON, N.J. – As the Regional Development School (RDS) players were competing on the pitch as a part of the RDS Winter Showcase, their parents gathered inside the Red Bulls Training Facility for a special RDS College Pathway presentation.
The purpose of the meeting was to gather parents of players who may be considering pursuing a collegiate soccer application and advise them of what to expect throughout the college recruitment process.
The presentation, delivered by Marguerite Ferrell, Red Bulls Senior Manager of Recruitment and Education, covered a wide range of topics including how to select a school, initiating contact with collegiate coaches, how to build a resume and portfolio for players, and athletic scholarships.
The group of approximately 40 parents were also provided with details on college eligibility, the NCAA and the Red Bulls’ style of play and philosophy.
The event concluded with a guided tour of the Red Bulls Training Facility.
