The “Experience RIASA” Prospect Camp is designed to allow you to fully understand the program to ensure it is a good fit for you and your family.
- Our focus is on your experience at the event; getting to know you, helping you get an understanding of the program and providing you with a quality experience as you learn about RIASA and we learn about you.
- A limited number of students on the RIASA Experience Camp allow for true assessment of students, abilities and suitability for the program. It is not a ‘cattle market’ ID camp. (Maximum 25 students per camp)
- Key assessors present: Football Director from England, the International Football Director along with RIASA scouts.
- Meet the key people regarding the academic program and learn about the American Undergraduate Degree program.
- Formal as well as informal interactive sessions. Students and parents can ask the necessary questions regarding the program over the course of two days.
- Understand playing the RIASA way through technical activities as you work with the RIASA Football Director and/or coaching staff.
- RIASA staff will assess prospective students for the program through a variety of activities and not a ‘one off’ showcase game. Sessions look at technical, small sided, 8 v 8, 11 v 11 and outside showcase game within the three-day sessions.
“To start off I am extremely happy with the opportunity you gave me during this camp in St.Louis. This exposure camp was one of the best I have attended in a long time. What I really liked is how many players there were. Some college camps I went to, there were 100+ and the coaches won’t see every player perform. You’ve shown that you really wanted someone to succeed by talking to them independently instead of the college camps I went to, were none of the coaches talked any of the players. I enjoyed all the training sessions we did especially the 5v5 because as a goalie you are going to get many shots at you testing your reaction.
After you and Coach Roeslein presented R.I.A.S.A it wouldn’t get off my mind that whole week. First of all, it would be awesome to go to England and playing your favorite sport while earning a degree. After looking online Leeds looks amazing to live in. I am extremely interested in International Sport Management. I would love to have a job in the future that deals with sport teams, especially if it’s a soccer club.”
