INDIVIDUAL PLAYER DEVELOPMENT SERIES

The LA Galaxy Individual Player Development Series (IPD) is an intensive and specialized 60-minute training series for intermediate/advanced players ages 8-14 (boys and girls) who are dedicated to mastering their technical skills. Each 4-week specialized series will cover a variety of topics including ball mastery, striking, defending and speed and agility. All participants will leave each session having learned advanced moves that will help their overall confidence and technical ability.

The next 4-week series focus will be Ball Striking/Goalkeeping. 

BALL STRIKING

Players will work through various techniques intended to build on form and repetition when striking the ball. Players will learn to work on their timing, understand pace of delivery and how to execute a variety of techniques, including but not limited to: ball striking technique through repetition, opposed and unopposed finishing, placement vs. power, 1v1 finishing in tight spaces, ball manipulation and more.

GOALKEEPING

Goalkeepers will work on a multitude of elements, including but not limited to: game reading, decision making, shot stopping, 1v1s, crosses, transitions, distribution and much more.

PROGRAM SKILL LEVEL REQUIREMENTS

To ensure the IPD is challenging and that all players meet the intermediate/advanced skill level, during registration we ask each player to provide what team they play for and the league level that team currently plays in. Upon review, each player will receive communication regarding their acceptance. If a player does not meet the skill level requirement, you will be fully refunded and an LA Galaxy Youth Programming staff member will contact the Guardian to help your player find a better fitting Youth program.  

The IPD is not intended to take the place of a player’s current club, rather it should be used as a supplemental training to advance a player’s soccer skills and passion to succeed.
