LA Galaxy II 2021 Open Tryouts USL

LA Galaxy II 2021 Open Tryouts USL

LA Galaxy will host an open tryout during the Spring of 2021 for their reserve team, LA Galaxy II, in an effort to expand their recruiting pool and discover players for the 2021 USL season. The tryout will take place at the Kellogg Zaher Soccer Complex in Las Vegas on Thursday April 29th, 2021 and Friday April 30th, 2021.

LA Galaxy II Open Tryouts offer participants the chance to become a professional soccer player by signing a contract with Los Dos. LA Galaxy II technical staff will be on hand to observe participants during the showcase and select a number of players at the conclusion of the tryout to travel back to LA and continue their trial.

"We are excited to see new players and have organized this event to expand our talent identification efforts" said LA Galaxy II Head Coach Junior Gonzalez. "We want to find young talent who can enter our organization through Galaxy II, then work their way up to the first team.  Scouting for Galaxy II gives us a chance to evaluate many different players: hidden gems that may not have agents, players without a fair chance in the past, first time pros, or young pros who are not under contract.  We want to make sure that everyone has a fair opportunity to be evaluated for a chance to earn a professional contract on our 2021 LA Galaxy II roster."

Concluding the events, a select number of players will be flown back to Los Angeles to train at the Dignity Health Sports Park for a further week of in depth trials, looking to earn a professional contract. All expenses associated with the trip will be covered by LA Galaxy including airfare, room and board, and training kit (boots excluded).
