Santa Monica United is the elite soccer club and developmental program on the Westside of Los Angeles. Our playing model creates a pathway for our players to reach tangible goals both as athletes and as people. Across the club, Santa Monica United is singularly focused on player progression.
For our younger athletes, this goes all the way up to creating opportunities at the developmental academy level with LA Galaxy and LAFC. We are a trusted advisor and soccer program with these professional clubs, which means our players are evaluated early and often. Our player progression focus shifts to college programs for our older players, where we have a demonstrated track record of elevating our players to elite college programs. Academic development is as important to us as athletic progress, so the club is purposefully constructed to create an elite, competitive soccer environment without the everyday commitment of a developmental academy. This balance feeds our college commitment by allowing the time for both academic and athletic development.
•Developmental progress at every age and every level
•Athletic and academic balance
•Creating a life-long love of soccer
•Building character through progress
