What is a RIASA ID Event?

RIASA run football events in both the US and UK. The UK ID event is planned so that you can experience what it’s like to be a student-athlete on our prestigious football programme and gives you the chance to showcase your abilities. Whilst on the event we will evaluate you as a player and identify if you fit into our programme.

During the day you will meet our highly qualified coaches and other academy team members. You’ll train for 4 hours over two separate sessions and the RIASA team will deliver a presentation to you, highlighting how our programme can help you achieve your aspirations.

Who should attend the RIASA ID Camp?

Our UK events are perfect for aspiring FEMALE & MALE footballers who want to develop tactically and athletically as they work towards earning a valuable dual accredited US/UK degree in International Sports Management. We also welcome mature students who want to study postgraduate degrees.

If you are looking at studying any degree in the UK, then our soccer programme could be a great choice for you. UK students in England may have access to student funding from the government and academy scholarships may be available to selected students.

If your goal is to eventually continue your study in America, you can start your American degree with us, build up your credits and earn an associate degree, avoiding the poor level of soccer played at junior colleges in the US. You can then transfer to a D1 2 or NAIA American University, whilst developing as a player with the professional coaches at RIASA.
