Each year, the RDS will identify select elite events to challenge the top players in the program. Typically, the rising Academy eligible age group will benefit from these opportunities as they look to prepare for Academy try-outs.
RDS tours are for players only, and are designed to enhance a player's sense of responsibility, accountability, and independence. This serves to closely replicate a professional playing environment, and prepare players for life within the Academy.
Attendance on these special events is strictly by invite only, with invitations based on performance within the RDS within the previous annual cycle.
Recent tours have included:
- April 2017: RDS 2005 Regional Team attend Generation Adidas Cup, Dallas, TX
