RDS 2005 Teams

Commencing in the fall of 2016, the Regional Development School will field a year-round team in the boys 2005 age group.

This team will look to effectively bridge the gap between the supplementary RDS and the full Academy teams, and better prepare young players for the environment they will experience should they graduate to the Academy.


The new RDS 2005 team competes in the top division of the U12 EDP Central division, with all home games being played at Red Bulls Training Facility.

Featuring some of the most talented players in this age group, and expert coaching from Red Bulls RDS youth coaches, the team provides a training and game environment unlike any other.

A competitive annual training fee includes the following:

  • 3 training sessions per week (2 local, 1 centralized)

  • Home and away game uniform

  • Warm-up gear and training uniform

  • Four high-level tournaments each year

  • 6 weeks of indoor winter training

  • Preseason orientation residential camp at Golden Goal Tournament Park (view diary of 2016 camp below)

  • Optional year-round supplementary Futbolinho training

  • Unrivaled player development tools such as pre-season goal setting, mid-season updates, and post-season review meetings

  • Unique MLS game day experiences such as ball boy opportunities and signing days

  • Access to exclusive MLS tournaments such as the Kia Invitational, and Generation Adidas Cup (diary below) - additional fees may apply

The roster for the fall 2016 to spring 2017 team has been finalized, and no more applications are being accepted. However, try-outs for next year's teams , featuring 2006 age groups will be posted in February 2017.
