LAFC Expands Youth Academy And Welcomes New Coaches


We are proud to announce two new LAFC Academy age groups, U-13 and U-14, bringing the total to three teams for the 2017-18 Academy season.

Additionally, the Club has added a six-member Academy coaching staff that represents diverse backgrounds and national and international experience in youth soccer development. Each staff member is committed to developing the next generation of players to the highest global standards and creating a pipeline to LAFC’s First Team.

“I’m confident that our new coaching team has the requisite experience, expertise, and passion to match our ambitious plans,” said John Thorrington, Executive Vice President of Soccer Operations.

LAFC’s Academy is a fully financed program that not only provides greater access to the game for the community, but also a professional pathway for elite players in the region. To submit an application for LAFC’s Academy, visit
