HERRIMAN, Utah (AP) — Real Salt Lake has held a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new training academy in Herriman.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/2bfp85L ) that nearly 200 cement trucks kicked off the seven-hour pour at 5 a.m. Tuesday. The $50 million Training Academy indoor/outdoor complex will be used by Real Salt Lake, the Real Monarchs and the club's U-18 and U-16 academy teams.

The complex will also hold a 300-student science, technology, engineering and mathematics school. The school opens next August.
