    RIASA Provided Professional Training Opportunities for its players

    In addition to the professional showcase games, the RIASA football director made arrangements for several of the RIASA players to have opportunity to spend training time with professional clubs. These opportunities took place at Carlisle United (Nahki Wells), Huddersfield (Joey Spivack NJ and Akil Howard MA) and Celtic (Christian Eissele, FL).

    Nahki Wells, became the first RIASA player to be signed as a professional by Carlisle Untied (League One), after his first semester in the academy. Nahki is now a standout player for Bradford City FC.

    Joey Spivack (New Jersey) and Christian Eissele (Florida) followed Nahki Wells into the professional ranks in March 2012, and Jae Yun Lee (S.Korea) in May 2013.
