Everything You Need In-House

You have everything you need right here in-house. The Academy’s part of our family: we’re able to be around them and have them around us. These are great facilities, great fields and a great place to concentrate, not a ton of distraction outside the game so that’s really positive.

Head Coach, Real Salt Lake

Reach Your Goals

Playing college soccer has always been one of my goals as it’s a step to becoming a professional soccer player. I am thankful for everything Grande Sports Academy provided me with. The coaching staff, academic staff, hotel staff and everyone else at the Grande helped make memories that I will cherish throughout my life. Without Grande Sports Academy I would have never gotten exposure to college coaches. Grande Sports Academy is the place to be if you want to reach your goals in soccer.


Tremendous Staff & World-Class Facilities

The Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy has become a standout program in regards to youth development within Major League Soccer. To have blossomed to these great heights so quickly is a testament to the tremendous coaching and business staff assembled and the world-class facilities available to the teams at Grande Sports Academy.

The RSL-AZ Academy will continue to draw some of this country’s most talented young soccer players, and any young man that wants to play professionally—in the U.S. National Team system or collegiately—should know that he will have more chances to be scouted by some of America’s top coaches while at the RSL-AZ Academy than anywhere else in the country.

I would like to thank you and your staff for the opportunity to use your facility last weekend. The meals were great and your kitchen staff was great to work with. The games you set up for us were excellent, the competition was good for our boys. The heat was an adjustment for our boys but they adjusted well. We also want to say thanks to Tony Bruce, it was a pleasure to work with him and his boys, they were great on the field and off. My son Braden and I enjoyed coming back to your facility once again. We hope to arrange some more games for us to come down again in the near future. Thanks again for everything!

This is our second preseason here, I can’t describe how great it’s been. It’s brought us together not only as far as preseason training, athletic training, but also as a retreat: staying together in the hotel, having great meals and the facilities and soccer fields are first class. We’re just very lucky and fortunate to be able to be here.
