What is your camp philosophy?

Our camps are designed to provide a better understanding of the game’s overall tactics in a safe and fun environment. Our staff teaches using age-appropriate technical and tactical exercises designed by our Academy coaches with the player in mind.

We strive to identify and develop key players in the community that could advance to play for the LA Galaxy one day.
