The coaching staff and training program are exceptional, the academic opportunities full and challenging. The Grande Sports World complex is the finest youth soccer training facility in the United States.

On-site dormitories are monitored 24/7 and have resident advisors housed in rooms next to the student athletes. The dormitories are adjacent to GSW and the legendary Francisco Grande Hotel and Golf Resort – an Arizona institution for the past 50 years dedicated to providing exceptional service to guests and players’ families and friends. The hotel is a full service resort with an experienced staff that do everything from overseeing the daily dietary standards for the student athletes to making sure their environment is safe and secure.
