Los Angeles Breakers Football Club (LA Breakers FC) is the west side’s premier soccer organization, forming teams from U8 to U19 to compete in several leagues and competitions, and offering year-round programming like camps and clinics to all ages. The club operates and emphasizes its six core values:
LA Breakers FC, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is the only west side club that is a member of both the boys and girls Elite Clubs National League, a nation-wide platform that “represents the epitome of excellence in youth soccer, for boys and girls, as the league and its clubs, players, coaches, and everyone involved seeks to constantly “Raise the Game” for the future.” Only select clubs are able to participate in this exclusive program.
Teams are also formed to compete in the ECNL-Regional League, as well as the SoCal Soccer League. All LA Breakers FC teams are coached by professionals – licensed and experienced individuals. Teams compete in local and regional events, like tournaments and State Cup.
The club’s day-to-day operations are led by its leadership team and its coache...s, and its long-term mission is set by the club’s volunteer Board of Directors.
LA Breakers FC was formed in 2018 with the merger of FC Los Angeles (an all-boys club) and Westside Breakers (an all-girls club); the two clubs had previously shared field space and philosophies, and merged to further develop their players, teams, and coaches, while improving the overall soccer landscape in Los Angeles.
The two former clubs had a long, consistent track record of player development and placement, with numerous alumni represented at the collegiate, national team, and professional levels, including Haji Wright (currently competing in Europe) and Ali Riley, captain of New Zealand’s women’s national team and competing locally for Angel City FC. Recent notable alumnae include Malina Yago (Brown University), Ashley Naylor (Notre Dame), Lauren Bolte (University of Michigan), Ally Reynolds (University of Virginia), and Natalie Barnouw (MIT); and recent notable alumni include Andrew Valverde (Gatorade National Player of the Year in California, UCLA), Levi Pillar (Brown University), Pablo Greenlee (UCLA), and Pierrick Gould (Georgetown).
The club eliminates barriers for participation with a robust financial assistance program for qualifying families, and welcomes families of all backgrounds and experiences to be part of the Breakers Family.
