The RSL Family Initiative falls under the umbrella of the new Real Salt Lake ethos, The RSL Way, which was developed by club legend Tony Beltran toward the end of the 2021 season.
“The RSL Way was created to refocus the club and make sure we got back to our roots of why people fell in love with the club in the first place,” said RSL Director of Community and Player Engagement, Kyle Schroeder. “The RSL Family Initiative is a big part of that. The initiative's purpose is to empower RSL employees to drive community focused missions which we believe proves that when you have someone who is passionate about one subject, you see that impact and their connection grow and drive that mission forth.”
Club employees submit their RSL Family Initiative ideas to the RSL Family Council who then work with the employee on the logistics of executing their vision. From there, the employee and the council work together to make their idea come to life.
Below are examples of RSL Family Initiatives from the 2022 season.
