Player Development Staff

Developing players is what we do, it is our passion. While we strive to advance our teams into the top leagues, we know our success is ultimately defined by the quality of individual players we produce and the opportunities we provide them.

To date, the legacy clubs who came together to form RISE have produced over 50+ National Team and/or Professional players and over 800+ Collegiate athletes. RISE has one major advantage and that’s that we offer a flexible player pathway.
