  • We spent the past 6 months analyzing ways we could improve our soccer sessions from the Coaches’ perspective, and found that having two Coaches on the field is extremely beneficial for player development. In 2024, we are committed to staffing the most beneficial amount of Coaches whenever possible!
  • As part of a holistic Coaching education initiative, we offer our Coaches Education meetings and implemented a minimum coaching license standard to ensure your child is receiving MLS-standard soccer training.
  • If you or someone you know is interested in coaching for the LA Galaxy, contact Chris Pedersen ( for more information.


With an enhanced Skills Training experience in 2024, Skills Training will be increased to $168 for an 8-week class ($21 per class). If your selected day is not a full 8-weeks, your fee will be prorated.


The three major topics that we be covered in a Skills season are: dribbling, passing, and shooting. The first week the coach will play games to see where the players are at developmentally and the last week will be for showcasing their development in a fun tournament!

> Week 1: Introductions

> Week 2 & 3: Dribbling

> Week 4 & 5: Passing

> Week 6 & 7: Shooting

> Week 8: Tournament!


Each week your soccer player will be given activities to complete at home. The homework will be specific to the skills they worked on in that class and will motivate them to continue growing as a soccer player throughout the week.


In 2024, we will be reducing the age of our Skills classes to U14. We do not offer any other weekly programs for players older than 14 years old and limited opportunities for players ages 15 or 16 (Elite Camp). We have an excellent relationship with AYSO and they offer leagues up to 19 years of age! If you are older than 14 and want to continue playing, check AYSO out here!


Once your player completes Skills Training, there are other options to continue their soccer journey – Leagues and Youth Development Camps! 5v5 Leagues offer a competitive in-game learning environment, while Skills Training focuses on individual on-the-ball movements. Youth Development Camps are seasonal and offers a platform for players of beginner and intermediate levels to challenge themselves in an exciting environment consisting of challenging camp games, ball mastery and tactical instruction.
