The RISE Youth Academy introduces your player with their first experiences in competitive soccer. This program allows players, who excelled at the recreational level to rapidly advance their technical skills along with like minded players under the watchful eyes of the RISE Player Development Staff. The Youth Academy pairs determined players with advanced coaches who are passionate about player development. Together, this synergy creates an inspiring, yet challenging environment where your player will learn and progress at a rapid rate.

At RISE, we take the player development process seriously, our approach isn't left to chance. The Player Development Staff meticulously prepares each activity within our training sessions. We use a teaching method of guided discovery to promote individual player development within the team concept. We not only teach your player about technique, but also build their Soccer IQ's by helping them recognize and understand game situations. We are invested in helping your player reach their goals and we understand that your player's success is ours.

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.
