The "Experience RIASA" Event.

(All RIASA events start 4.00pm Friday and finish 12 noon Sunday)

Why "Experience RIASA" Event?

The "Experience RIASA" event is a two and half day event designed to allow you to fully understand the academic and athletic program and ensure it is a good fit for you and your family. It is a more in depth opportunity to get to know the you as an individual than watch a 'one off' showcase game. The event is more about you getting to know RIASA on a personal level.


                                                                                   Who Should Attend?

• Academically qualified students who meet the admission requirments of the Univerisity. Please make sure you know what the academic requirements are before attending the 'Experience RIASA' event.

• RIASA is seeking talented players, who are academically eligible, at the US National Academy level, ODP State and Regional Level or playing for a top Premier Soccer club.

• RIASA understands that clubs may restrict National Academy players attending these events. However, as we are a University program you should be able to get permission to attend and play over the course of the weekend, as you are a prospective University student.

• Students looking to make the RIASA Elite or Club Summer Experience Program.



          What Makes the 'Experience RIASA' – Event Different?

• Learn about the American Undergraduate degree program.

• 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 allows 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.

• 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.
