RSL Youth Development

Much like Real Salt Lake's first team, the RSL Youth Development System has quickly grown into one of the most respected programs not only in Major League Soccer, but in all of the United States. The RSL Youth Development program boasts branches in three states, including the Real Salt Lake–Arizona (RSL-AZ) Academy, the first soccer residency program affiliated with a Major League Soccer club. In addition to the RSL-Arizona Academy, Real Salt Lake nutures talent closer to home through its RSL Academy U12 team..

Grande Sports Academy

The Real Salt Lake-AZ Academy is unique in that it is the only soccer residency program in the nation that is affiliated with an MLS team. Twenty four players from nine states now call Grande Sports World home. This includes nine team members who have been selected to represent the U.S. National team for their respective age group. The Academy residency program will be expanding to 86 student-athletes for the 2011-12 Academic Year beginning in August 2011, and tryout camps will be held this summer, with some scholarships available for camps and the soccer residency program.  More »

The U-12 team is the newest addition to the RSL player program and will jumpstart an age-group with plans to graduate them to the RSL-Arizona Academy.  The team will be based in Sandy, Utah and players will be identified through open trials held at the end of May. The U-12 squad will begin competing in June and play throughout the remainder of the year.  The club will continue to be managed by RSL President Bill Manning, a U.S. Soccer A-license coach, and former professional indoor player Shane Jones.
