Every player is challenged and put through a fierce curriculum designed to improve confidence with the soccer ball at the player’s feet:LA Galaxy South Bay Skills Training with Curt Onalfo is directed, run and attended by Curt Onalfo,  Head Coach of LA Galaxy II and Assistant Coach of LA Galaxy.  Each 8-week program is comprised of a 1-hour per week, intense skills training session to help DRAMATICALLY improve each player’s technical skills on the ball. The small group approach allows EACH player to get individualized attention by creating a 1-to-8 ratio of player to coach with an emphasis on maximizing the amount of touches on the ball for each player while still allowing for tactical instruction because of the small groups in each session.  It is remarkable how much our players have improved.  Players that have been attending multiple programs per year have become some of the most skillful players in the area.

  • LA Galaxy II Head Coach Curt Onalfo Staff includes current LAGII professional players and other top coaches in the South Bay area

  • Maximize touches on the ball – 1000 ball touches per lesson

  • Develop exceptional skills and become a standout player

  • Ace your tryouts!

Our goal is to give each player the skills to succeed.

"I personally guarantee your child will walk away from our intensive small group skills lessons a much better soccer player!" - Curt Onalfo

“Ella had a great weekend.  She really was composed – her new favorite word :)- and used great ball skills - thank you for helping her so much!”

“Curt, my boys have both improved so much. I cannot thank you enough.  Zachary started today in his game at left forward and I have never seen him happier. He is more confident and aggressive than ever. Noah's team had a big win this weekend winning 5-4 and he played his best game ever!”
