We provide a dynamic learning culture focusing on individualization, skill development, and competitive competence.

Students get to immerse themselves in their major for 5 hours daily, split into 2-hour and 3-hour blocks. Alongside their specialized studies, students also cover core subjects such as Math, English, Science, Social Studies, World Languages, Fine Arts, and Physical Education. Our classes run from Monday to Friday, with students attending for 5.5-6 hours daily.

Our program has two unique training sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The morning session includes two hours of stroke production and technique development. The focus of the afternoon session is point development and match play. The students will have one hour of on and off-court conditioning and weight training three times per week. Our method of two training sessions per day will allow the student to assimilate the instruction effectively.

Our high-performance Academy has a track record of helping players reach their potential. In addition to academy training, players will be given a chance to train with the best players and engage in match-play, conditioning, mental training, video analysis, and player analysis.

FAQ

If accepted to the program, you can join the RPS Soccer on a full-time boarding or non-boarding basis. The difference between these two formats is that boarding students live in the dorms at the Sandpiper Bay Resort at our facility. Non-boarding students spend the entire day at the facility but once academics and sports are over for the day they return to their off-campus homes.

Alternatively, plenty of student-athletes from all over the world participate in the program on a short-term basis, coming to train with us and experience the academy life generally for 1-3 weeks at a time.

Groups and teams are also frequently received with the objective of experiencing this academy life and compete against some of our teams.

RPS Soccer recruits players from Rush and non-Rush clubs from around the world. Interested candidates are evaluated as far as their soccer level through video and/or personally when possible. Very frequently interested candidates fly to the academy for short term stays of a week to try out for our teams.

Academic records are also evaluated as part of this process.

The academy life is exciting every day, yet long and demanding. Our student-athletes wake up early around 6 AM to prepare themselves for training and academics. They generally eat breakfast at 7 AM and at 8 – 8:30 AM walk to the fields for a morning training session, complemented by a second session for fitness at the gym or on the field (in recovery days this can be replaced for a class of Mental Conditioning, Nutrition, or Video Analysis).

By 9:45 AM the student-athletes are showering and getting ready to attend school, which runs in two blocks of two hours, from 10 AM – 12 PM and 1 PM – 3 PM, leaving a one hour break in the middle for the students to have lunch.

Once school is over, the participants change again into their training gear to go for a second training sessions at 3:30 PM on the field.

At 5 PM their day concludes, leaving an hour for them to shower and relax before dinner at the resort restaurant.

Two days a week the student-athletes attend a third shift of academics at the school.
