LAFC Cosmos is a sporting organization with a unique and distinguished focus on leading and guiding young people of all races and economic situations to the destination of a brighter future and a better life.
We use athletic competition, in this case, the sport of soccer, as the platform to accomplish our youth development goals. Our vision is to provide professional and collegiate opportunities for our players and to make a positive impact on players’ lives. Sport and soccer is the beacon that brings youth to us.
- The preeminent training center for youth players in the US.
- We offer a platform for talented youth to play professionally in US. and throughout the world.
- We’ve increased opportunities and options for economically disadvantaged players.
- We provide training and exposure for youth players of all abilities.
