Player Successes

The legacy clubs that came together to form RISE have developed more than 50 professional and National Team/Pool level players and have placed over 800 players into University programs. Managing and transitioning talented players from the youth environment to the collegiate or professional environment requires an extensive amount of parent/player education, player development, managing expectations, and establishing a strong professional network. By establishing trusting relationships with your players we will be better positioned to help guide them in the right direction whenever opportunity knocks.  

We’ve had countless talented athletes who have made a positive impact both on and off the field. Below are a few standouts that we are extremely grateful to have worked with and will never be forgotten. These are the players that our current athletes can look up to and potentially follow in their footsteps.
