Why RISE Youth Academy

RISE Youth Academy players must demonstrate a steady commitment to training to ensure proper development through consistent touches on the soccer ball and regular instruction from elite coaches. As your player ages through the Youth Academy, they will have developed a strong fundamental skill level, an understanding of our style of play, and become immersed in the culture at RISE. Your player can register on a seasonal or yearly basis for this program.

RISE uses the pool training concept in our Youth Academy to ensure your player is consistently in a high quality training environment. Pool training shifts the focus away from team development and prioritizes individual player development. During pool sessions, RISE players will be grouped together with players who have similar skill levels with the understanding that players develop at different stages. Increased competition, an improved training environment, and accelerated player development are all by-products of the pool training.
