RSL Owner Dell Loy Hansen has formed the Monarchs as an elite lower-division professional squad which bridges the gap between Real Salt Lake - which drew 0-0 on Saturday night in the first leg of its 2014 Western Conference Semifinal series against the Los Angeles Galaxy - and the club's highly-lauded academy at the Grande Sports complex in Arizona, which has produced a perennial pipeline of NCAA Division I players, young professionals and has consistently competed for numerous national championships at the U-18 and U-16 levels in recent years.
"We have a bunch of talent in the pipeline at the Arizona academy, and we'd love to start signing a few more of these kids that need professional seasoning before we add them to the first-team roster," said RSL General Manager Garth Lagerwey. "We have some homegrown kids that are in college right now to whom we've begun offering contracts; they could be a very, very good nucleus there for a USL PRO team."
"Kudos to Mr. Hansen for taking this step. We are extremely excited about giving some of these young kids an opportunity to really test themselves, and hopefully make some mistakes and learn from those mistakes so that they're better prepared when they join the first team."
