GALAXY DISCOVERY PROGRAM – ACADEMY SIGNEE TESTIMONIALS
NICOLAS ACUNA, COHORT 1
UIFC FUTBOL ACAEMY 2008
“I am extremely thankful to have been part of the very first Galaxy Discovery Program Cohort. It was an opportunity to showcase my talent with top players not yet discovered.
I wouldn’t be in my current team without the support of Coaches, staff and everyone who works together to make it all possible at GDP. It was there where I was identified and invited to train with the Academy, where I officially signed my first soccer contract. I couldn’t be any happier to be a part of the LA Galaxy Academy, officially being coached by the best coaches Los Angeles has.
I am excited to continue to learning from my goalkeeper Coach Jonathan Lomeli. I can’t thank him enough for believing in me as well. I am looking forward to continuing my journey with the LA Galaxy Academy. G’s Up,”

“How exciting it was… it was my favorite night of the week! Stepping onto the field with other talented players, handpicked by the best Academy coaches was an honor, and still continues to be a honor!
GDP was filled with challenging moments that elevated my playing knowledge and ability… Without this time spent working with the coaches and providing me tools to help me showcase myself it might have taken me longer to get here… I am thriving in this environment! Everyday I get stronger and better!
The GDP program gave me a stage to be seen by the Academy and now I am making my dream happen, working to be a professional soccer player, with the best coaches at the best academy! Soccer is my life!”
JOSEPH COX, COHORT 1
“I’ve worked hard to get to where I am today, where I’ve always wanted to be. I couldn’t have made it here without God, my coaches, hard work and GDP.
GDP was an amazing experience for me as a player and as an Individual. The communication from the Coaches at the Academy to the players was superb. The training sessions were very competitive and focused on getting each player to develop.
These past 7-8 months with the Academy have been excellent, professional and everything that the Coaches and staff do is for the players; we have the best athletic trainers and Coaches.
Over all, the LA Galaxy Academy is one of the best, if not the best academy, in LA.”
