MOST COMMENTED

[LOS ANGELES GALAXY] The Los Angeles Galaxy has formed LA Galaxy Academy Alliance, a development program in association with youth club partners South Bay Force and West Coast Futbol Club, as well as adidas, that will be an integral part of the pathway for players to join for the LA Galaxy Academy.
 
The South Bay Force became the first local club to partner with the Galaxy, doing so in March 2011 and establishing the foundation for what has become the Galaxy Alliance. The partnership with South Bay Force and its director Todd Saldana, a former head coach at UCLA, has helped to produce each of LA’s last three homegrown signings with Oscar Sorto, Jose Villarreal and Gyasi Zardes all playing for the club prior to joining the Galaxy Academy.
 
Each Galaxy Alliance club will house an Under-12 Galaxy Academy team that will be fully funded and fully supported by the Galaxy Academy and adidas, a partner of the Galaxy Academy since 2009, who will be providing Galaxy uniforms and equipment for each of the teams to use.

Current Galaxy Alliance clubs are located in the South Bay and Orange County with most of those team’s training sessions being held locally in those regions.

Once a week, these teams will hold a combined training session at The Home Depot Center that will be led by LA Galaxy legend and Galaxy Academy Youth Technical Director Mauricio Cienfuegos.
 
The South Bay Galaxy Academy team will be coached by Saldanawith Ted Eck, who had been the head coach of the Galaxy U-12s, as an assistant, while the team in Orange County will be coached Braeden Cloutier, who had served as head coach of Galaxy U-13s.
