CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – A huge slate of games is on deck this weekend for the Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy and Elite teams as they take part in the final round of Generation adidas Cup qualifying and the SC del Sol President’s Day Tournament, respectively.

After a disappointing performance last weekend in Southern Caliofrnia, Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy U-15/16 (1-0-1) returns to Carson for the final three games of 2015 Generation adidas Cup qualifying.

RSL-AZ U-15/16 face off against the LA Galaxy (0-1-1), Seattle Sounders FC (0-2-0) and the Portland Timbers (1-0-1), needing to finish in first or second place in the West Region in order to qualify for the “GA” bracket against international competition in April.

Back in Phoenix, Real Salt Lake-Arizona Elite U-17 and U-18 prepare for a huge weekend of competition in the 36th Annual SC del Sol President’s Day Tournament. Facing competition from around the country and with hundreds of college coaches in attendance, the Elites will be looking to impress under the bright lights.
