Grande Sports Academy
The coaches at Grande Sports Academy are amongst the best in the country— they have won a National Championship, produced 21 professional players, student athletes have earned over 100 college scholarships and 60 players have played for US or other National Teams. They’re affiliated with a Major League Soccer team, and they are one of only three teams in the country to reach the USSDA Playoffs each year since 2011 in the U-15/16 and U-17/18 age groups. How did they do it? A combination of expertise and the right training facility: the $20 million dollar Grande Sports World complex in Casa Grande, Arizona, 45 minutes South of Phoenix International Airport.
The facilities won “Best Training Facility” by US Soccer and have been used by 15 MLS teams and 5 National teams. The complex includes eight professional-grade outdoor soccer fields, additional outdoor technical training areas, and a 58,000-square-foot performance center, where players train on high-performance strength and conditioning equipment. There’s even an onsite golf course that offers more than golf, the new popular game – Footgolf!
