The tryouts will be held at Jordan High School in Sandy on May 24 and 25. Players born from 1995 to 1998 will be given a chance to show their skills to RSL head scout Andy Williams and RSL director of youth camps Rob Karas and could potential be invited to be a part of the RSL-Arizona Academy U-16 and U-18 teams.
The tryout will consist of several game practices and exercises conducted in an informal session. Those who perform well at the tryout sessions may be invited back to participate in RSL’s youth development program, possibly including an invitation to join the RSL-Arizona residential academy.
Based out of the Grande Sports World training facility in Casa Grande, Ariz., the RSL-Arizona Academy is currently in its third season of play in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy, the country’s highest tier of youth soccer featuring 80 clubs fielding teams in both the U-15/16 and U-17/18 age groups.
All tryout participants are required to pre-register, and no walk-up registration will be allowed. Registration is $50, and all required forms must be filled out and turned in before tryouts.
