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..

Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy & Grande Sports Academy

Grande Sports Academy, home of the nationally recognized Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy, is the only full-time residential academy affiliated with a Major League Soccer team. The academy concentrates on developing highly competitive soccer players to become outstanding young men both on and off the field. Grande Sports Academy has built an organization that sets the bar for excellence, winning the 2012-13 U.S. Soccer Development Academy U-15/16 National Championship, reaching the 2013-14 USSDA U-15/16 final and becoming one of only three teams in the country to reach the USSDA playoffs in every season since 2010-11 at both the U-15/16 and U-17/18 age groups.  More »
