LA Galaxy introduce soccer clinics to Carson schools as part of Champion Project

As the LA Galaxy season kicked off, the LA Galaxy Champion Project launched soccer programming into Carson elementary schools within a five-mile radius of Dignity Health Sports Park.

From Leapwood Avenue Elementary School to Del Amo Elementary School, seven Carson elementary schools held a LA Galaxy Champion Project school wide day dedicated to soccer programming for students. Kindergarten to 5th grade students spent the afternoon rotating through soccer drills that tested their soccer skills and let them play with all their friends.

Special guest appearances from LA Galaxy Star Squad and LA Galaxy mascot, Cozmo, created opportunities for students to celebrate their soccer programming day. Soccer programming will continue at these elementary schools as the LA Galaxy Champion Project provides 20-LA Galaxy soccer ball and 2 pop-up soccer nets to encourage and grow the game of soccer at each elementary school.
