The RIASA Development Model

RIASA offers students the opportunity to play at several levels: from Development Academy, U21, Academy Level to Professional Academy Level.

There is a true pyramid system of development where students can move through the academy teams, and then into a showcase team.

Every March selected students can attend the RIASA exit trials in Scandinavia, providing the opportunity to RIASA players to showcase their talents.
