RISE WITH US

At RISE, we take a systematic approach to unlocking the value in our club. Developing soccer players is a long-term process so building relationships within our community and earning the trust of our constituents is critical to our process.

RISE offers well-structured soccer programs that are efficiently and effectively delivered by professionally licensed coaches whose ultimate focus is on individual player development. RISE develops youth soccer players that embody our commitment to provide an unparalleled player environment led by the most talented and qualified coaches who embrace and inspire the talents of all players.

For our Youth Academy, Elite and Premier teams, RISE uses the player evaluation or player tryout process (depending on the player’s age) to evaluate new players from outside of the club and both seasonal and yearly RISE players. During these sessions, the Coaching Staff is looking for new players who can make an immediate impact on existing teams and continuing to monitor the development progress of seasonal and yearly RISE players. We seek players who are good teammates, have a growth mindset and can help improve our teams and the players around them. It is imperative that players coming to RISE add value to the club and its’ culture.
