(Via LA Galaxy San Diego) – Formerly Carlsbad United FC, LA Galaxy San Diego (LAGSD) will launch as a club on January 1st, 2016, with the added prestige of having been accepted into the U.S. Soccer Development Academy U-12 Boys Program.

“Acceptance into the U.S. Development Academy is a natural progression for our program, and brings a long-term vision to reality” said LAGSD Technical Director Steve Cowell. “When we merged the two clubs in Carlsbad this was always an integral part of our plan, and we embrace the opportunity to work closely with U.S Soccer. We are excited to help develop the next generation of elite level players at such a critical age, and support our players who have dreams to go on and represent the LA Galaxy at a professional level.”

LAGSD Director of Boys Program, Glenn Malone, commented, “We are thrilled to have been chosen as one of the clubs that will kick off the inaugural BU12 Academy Program and we feel our vision matches the very high standard the USSF Academy Program demands.” Malone continued, “Our club has always prided itself on doing things the right way as far as player development is concerned, and now, being part of the U.S. Development Academy, we will be aligning ourselves with the very best in the country. These are very exciting times for what now is LA Galaxy San Diego!”

LA Galaxy San Diego is hopeful that the U-13 and U-14 age groups will also follow suit, along with their U12 acceptance, into the U.S. Development Academy Program.
