how many kids were there ?
They had about 40 kids at that one location. RDS held tryouts at 3 locations with roughly 200 players for each group.

most responders here totally missed question. OP asking not about RDS but RDS Regional Teams. My son is on one now and they have been great. Low 10:1 ratio, great instructors, highly professional organization, communication etc. Also, many free or low cost added sessions, tournaments, camps etc. It can be a bit more driving but if you can manage it - totally worth it. Yes - only 2-3 per team likely to end up at academy, but thats not so different than regular DAs. For my rising 7th grader at a DA, probably only 2-3 of the original team of 25 3rd graders will be on DA next year.

I heard RDS team is good , but cost is $2900 + uniform $400-500 + games + optional practice is at NJ + low cost added sessions + camp. I thing its very high for 9 & 10 years boys

I agree especially if they already play on another team too. My son plays on SUSA and we will keep him there. They are around the same cost. SO its 6k a yr for soccer. I want my kid pushed. I feel he has talent and does very well on his team. But 6k is a big nut.

what's the difference between the regional and the standard RDS? The competition seemed the same. Is the regional more of a commitment?

Standard "RDS" consists of supplemental training clinics and camps, which are tryout based.

RDS Regional Teams are actual teams playing in pre-Academy age groups (this year was 08s and 07s), From these teams (there were 3 teams playing EDP) they will probably select 2-3 kids from each to move on to Red Bulls Academy. So figure next year the Red Bulls U12 team may consist of some kids (7-10 kids?) from the 3 RDS teams and the rest they've gone out and found outside from other clubs.

Your son should be playing on Barca Academy NY if you want him to be pushed and trained correctly. Forca Barca!
