The LA Galaxy Girls’ Academy, the first and only girls’ program to be fully-funded by a Major League Soccer club, is continuing to host tryouts ahead of the Academy’s kickoff in Fall 2017, including this Friday, May 12. Founded in October 2016, the LA Galaxy Girls’ Academy will consist of U-14, U-15, U-16/17 and U-18/19 teams that will compete in the U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy League, set to begin in the fall of 2017.


The LA Galaxy Girls’ Academy next tryout and evaluation session will be this Friday, May 12 at StubHub Enter. For those interested in registering to try out to be a part of the LA Galaxy’s first ever Girls’ Academy team, visit www.lagalaxy.com/academy/girls.


Each team will consist of up to 23 players from within a 75 mile radius of StubHub Center, home of the LA Galaxy. The teams will train at StubHub Center four times each week while playing their matches in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy League throughout the region. Those given a spot on the roster will be allowed to join the Academy free of charge.


U.S. Soccer started the Development Academy Program to improve long-term player and coach development. After studying player development models domestically and internationally, U.S. Soccer collaborated with elite soccer clubs across the nation to create a program to provide the proper environment by emphasizing quality training and limited meaningful competition.
