Max Shacknai 


Max Shacknai was a young talented player in the Scottsdale Soccer Blackhawks Competitive Program who tragically lost his life in July 2011. Max is remembered by the Club through the Max Shacknai Invitational soccer tournament which provides a showcase for soccer excellence and the character and athletic development it represents.

The Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer Foundation 


The Financial Assistance arm of Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer, the Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer Foundation, raises needed funds to provide the opportunity of youth soccer to those who would otherwise be unable to afford it. 

  • A portion of Max Shacknai Invitational proceeds goes directly to the Foundation.  
  • We do not have Participation Medals for our Youth Academy teams (U7 - U10). 100% of the money we save goes to the Foundation for Financial Assistance - "Kids giving back to Kids!"

Added Amenities

The Max Shacknai Invitational strives to make us your "tournament of choice."  

  • Individual Player Medals for 1st and 2nd place, a Championship Team Trophy, and Championship Hats for all U11 - U15 Division Champions. Participation Pins for all players.  
  • The reason we have so many volunteers on our fields is so that you can see that your experience is important to us. At Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer, we take great pride in our players, our events and our Club. Don't be surprised if you are greeted with a smile and an offer to be of assistance.

We hope that you have an exciting weekend of soccer and look forward to seeing you again next year!
