As we navigate thru these difficult times, we believe it's important to stay healthy and active, to keep practicing and training and most importantly, to STAY CONNECTED.
Here below are some tools and resources that we hope will assist all our athletes in the next few weeks. Check back often--this information is updated regularly as new resources are announced via our social media channels. As One!
LIVE TRAINING SESSIONS
FREE ON LINE TRAINING SESSIONS starting on Monday and featuring coaches from Arizona and Utah as well as players from our MLS Real Salt Lake and NWSL Utah Royal players as we move forward. Kids need a ball, a little space to play and preferably a wall to use as a passer. Concrete, grass, turf or inside is fine. New sessions will be posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 5 pm.

A Message from Chris Behler
A Message from Derek Leder
Colleges are now in a recruiting stop per the NCAA during the outbreak. Once this is over the schools will be out in force to catch up on the very valuable lost time. We want to keep everyone as educated as possible.
Our Boys College Director, Chris Behler and Girls College Director, Derek Leader hosted a general info session today for the kids in Yuma and Southern AZ that will be recorded and posted to our RSL AZ youtube channel.
Chris and Derek are also hosting small group meeting next week on a first come first serve basis.
The sessions are for Juniors and Seniors and will focus on narrowing down your college search. Only 20 players per session.
