Tryouts

IMPORTANT UPDATE JUNE 26, 2020

The LA Galaxy send our best wishes to you and your family during these challenging times. We understand the importance of transparency and we want to share some updates about the 2020 LA Galaxy II tryouts. The health and safety of all participants is our number one priority. After conversations with both our club and hosting facilities, we have made the decision to reschedule all tryouts to a fall date to be determined. If you have previously registered, no action is needed at this time. Your registration will automatically be transferred to a new tryout date in the fall. Once we are safely able to host tryouts and new dates have been confirmed, you will be notified of the registration process. For those who have already registered and would like to discuss any other possible accommodations, including the possibility of obtaining a refund, please do not hesitate to contact me at wmeadows@lagalaxy.com

Thank you for your continued support and patience! 

--Wes Meadows, Sr. Manager Programming & Fan Development
