The training is great. And if your kid is talented enough to be deserving, it will certainly lead to an academy tryout. But if your kid is not, then no. As has been mentioned, RDS seems to be politic-free, so "exposure" and them "knowing your kid" will only get your kid so far. The rest of it needs to be earned.

True. Don't go in expecting it to lead to anything. It is very good training so look at it as just that. If it leads to something more, bonus

My kid played for rds regional team last year. The training, professionalism, and teammate caliber will be significantly higher than DUSC and somewhat higher than MSC. Depending on which part of Manhattan you live in, playing for their NJ team may be slightly better logistically, though they may be offering you only the LI option. Separately, NY STars Premier on Randalls Island may also be worth checking out if you are uptown.

Ya my son really enjoyed the tryouts and competition. I really wish we lived closer! Both the NJ locations and the LI location are really difficult for us traffic-wise.
