Galaxy Juniors Program

LAGSD Galaxy Juniors Program

LA Galaxy San Diego is very proud to introduce the Galaxy Juniors program. Established around the success of previous years coaching our youngest children, LAGSD feel that the structure and application of this specifically designed program is unique, exciting, & unrivaled.

The Galaxy Juniors program serves as a bridge between recreational & competitive soccer. It enables a smooth transition between the two levels of soccer and aims to install a passion for sports, specifically soccer, within our children at the youngest age groups.

The Galaxy Juniors program runs on both the boy’s and girl’s side of the soccer club and prepares our youngest players for many of the similarities that await them at the older age groups.
