Top players may be invited to join the Academy in San Jose for trainings and games at the appropriate age.
The program is a supplemental one, meaning that players do not need to leave their existing team/club and should view the opportunity as one of extra training and exposure to high-level coaching and scouts.
Typically, the San Francisco Elite Academy Earthquakes RDS team will train once per week and, on occasion, play competitive friendlies against other RDS teams from throughout Northern California, which include San Jose Earthquakes, Ethos Soccer, San Mateo, East Valley Earthquakes, Diablo FC and West Coast SC.
There will be multiple RDS seasons or "blocs" each year with each bloc lasting approximately 3-4 months and including 8 training session plus the possibility (not guaranteed) of playdates/games.
