RSL Arizona announces the addition of Honolulu Bulls to the network of clubs working together to provide the best possible learning and competitive avenues for the players.
This partnership ensures that both clubs can benefit from a greater depth of players and easier access to more competitive leagues. Additionally, the partnership will ensure a shared training protocol that is consistent from youth academy to development academy and beyond.
“The history of the Honolulu Bulls is immense and we are very excited to welcome the Honululu Bulls into our club”, said Brent Erwin, RSL AZ Executive Director. “As part of our commitment to our players, we are constantly looking for avenues to expand their development and competition opportunities and we believe this partnership is another step in this direction. The coaches and staff at Honululu Bulls already share our coaching and training philosophy and we are excited to offer our standardized curriculum to their players.”
“Many of the great players developed in Hawaii, historically, have come thru the Honolulu Bulls. We are honored to be associated with the coaches, players, families and alumni of the Bulls and can’t wait to help build the next generation of great players from Hawaii!” added Brent.
“We could not be more honored and excited to be part of the RSL- AZ family,” said Rodney Lee, Honolulu Bulls Board President. “For us as a club, the RSL-AZ partnership builds on our ongoing efforts to provide pathways for our players development and offers them exposure outside of our island shores. Now, for those special players, we have an avenue toward nationally competitive DA and ECNL leagues. I want to personally thank Brent Erwin and Coach David Schaffer for their enthusiasm and efforts to bring us together.”
“It is a huge honor for the Honolulu Bulls to be a part of the RSL AZ family. RSL AZ exemplifies what we are teaching our players locally” stated Mael Lefebvre, Honolulu Bulls Director of Coaching. “It is a great opportunity for the development of our players to be able to have a pathway to play on the national level which we are not able to offer on a regular basis, here, in Hawaii. We could not be more excited to be able to work with a club that shares the same ideas about player development, as well as coaching philosophy. Therefore, I would also like to thank David Schaffer, Brent Erwin as well as the entire RSL AZ family to be allow us to be a part of their organization. We are looking forward to the fruitful relationship that this partnership will certainly bring” added Mael Lefebvre.
