RVDL Academy Tryout Assessment
Next formal Tryout Assessment Day will be in the Fall 2013
All players will be taken through a warm-up, skills training session followed by skills tests and finishing with games. During the coaches review, players will be assessed and will be provided 3 pathways of development based on their ability levels presented.
1st Pathway- An immediate invite to join the age appropriate Academy Team.
2nd Pathway- Join our age appropriate Pre-Academy Group in order to provide an accelerated pathway to development and then potentially on to the Academy Team.
3rd Pathway- Be invited to join one of our Soccer School programs in order to develop the strong foundation necessary to gain confidence and consistency with the ball in order to move to the Pre-Academy for accelerated development.
There is no cost for the Tryout. You have heard about us, so why not come out and experience the RVDL Philosophy first hand.
If you are interested to be assessed to be considered for Academy or Pre_Academy before the next Tryout Assessment Day please contact us and fill out the Academy Consideration Form

THE REAL PATHWAY TO THE PREMIERSHIP
The Success our teams experienced in the Keele Cup in the UK and the numerous Professional Club scouts that commented very positively on our teams performances including some individual players, has fueled our vision of creating the very best players and teams, not only in Ontario but in the whole of Canada. Our Mission is to develop players to their full potential and utilizing our contacts to expose the elite players to Scholarship opportunities or Professional playing careers.
We are looking for talented and driven players that have the desire to do more to reach their potential. Players will receive top class training from our well trained and internationally experienced Full-time coaching staff. All coaches are mentored and assessed by Robin, the Technical Director, on a continuous basis so we are able to maintain our Vision of suppling a high quality, detail oriented, consistent program for all our players.
RVDL Academy Scholarship Program
In keeping with our Vision and Mission we do not want any player that has the potential to excel as a top level player, not to have the opportunity to reach their highest potential due to real financial hardship. Through corporate sponsorship and donations we are able to assist highly talented players, with reductions in Academy fees. All requests will be handled privately on a case by case basis.
We are also looking for talented and driven Goalkeepers that have the desire to do more to reach their potential. In addition to keepers receiving top class training from our well trained and experienced Full-time coaching staff, our keepers receive additional professional Keeper training with our affiliate, Eurostar Goalkeeper Academy. Reduced Academy fees available for Goalkeepers through our Goalie Sponsorship Program.
