The RSL-AZ Excel U6-U11 program is the bridge between the RSL-AZ "Recreational" Program and the RSL-AZ "Competitive" program. These RSL-AZ Excel teams play in the RSL-AZ Recreational league but are coached by the RSL-AZ professional coaching staff. When we get enough RSL-AZ Excel registrations in a age group we'll form a division of only RSL-AZ Excel teams who will only play other RSL-AZ Excel teams, otherwise we play in divisions that have both Rec and Excel teams. In some cases some of our Excel teams will play up one age group in a flighted age bracket. Some seasons we'll combine 2 age groups because of the number of players who have registered or to match up with the Rec combined divisions for league games.
During the Fall and Winter seasons, the RSL-AZ Excel U6-U11 teams will play in our club-sponsored Tournaments; Holiday Classic (December) and Ostrich Tournament (March). For our Spring RSL-AZ Excel season, RSL-AZ Excel teams only play league games and no tournaments as there are no RSL-AZ sponsored Tournaments in the spring.
Although these RSL-AZ Excel teams differ from our competitive RSL-AZ teams they give players a chance to play on a team that has the similar support program the competitive RSL-AZ teams have including the RSL-AZ coaching staff. Playing on an RSL-AZ Excel team is an excellent way to prepare for our annual competitive RSL-AZ May tryouts.
