    LAUFA made an historic movement in pro of the youth soccer players.
    Laufa is opening an international doors for talented players. We are finally off the local boundaries (MLS).
    This program will change the way California's understand soccer.

    What is the framework of this partnership? Clinics from their coaches and/or invites to train in Spain?

    Good question.
    No clinics for anybody.
    Rcde already has some of their crew here in LA to work in conjunction with laufa staff to ensure the proper training and managment of said partnership.
    Yes, laufa's teams will not only be competing against DA teams. Also will be competing against European academies in Barcelona in a public/ private games, training or tournaments.

    . Good hopefully you can help organize a tournament and get some European teams out here to see the talent. MLS teams need the pressure from Non-MLS clubs to evolve and start helping all of the kids in Southern California instead of recruiting them. Everyone will benefit in the end.

    That was a prototype. The real move was executed last Friday.

    At this point, we are opening a tryout opportunity for boys from 2010 to 2003 on a daily bases. If you happen to know a talented player willing to take this challenge. Please let us know.

    We don't have an specific tryout day or deadline, we are going to be identifying players during the next months (state/national cup). If your kid is currently playing DA, you will have to wait until the season is over. (Per DA rules). If you are not DA, you are more than welcome to come to us for few practices. This opportunity seems to be more beneficial for non DA players at this moment. However, if for some reason, you are at DA but thinking or planning to leave for any circumstances. Once you are fully released, you can come to these tryouts.
    You can request your tryout at our official website
    https://www.launitedfutbolacademy.com

    Or contact me at goalkeeper05@icloud.com
    Thank you

    Looks like the same old "Kool Aid"
    Tastes like the same old "Kool Aid"
    Until we see an actual change in the environment, it'll be "Kool Aid"

    Curious how does this open doors internationally?
    I though unless you have some kind of dual citizenship, you're pretty much stuck here until you turn 18.
    Or is it that you get to play a few friendlies in Europe or have a "practice" session with their academy coaches?

    You don't have to have a dual citizenship to play outside the country. that is only required if you are looking to play for another country national team.
    Any kid can play outside the country after 16 years old.
    If the player loves soccer, he or she won't be "stuck" anywhere. from an early age of 7 or 8 years old to 16 years old, many opportunities will land on each player hand. What laufa is trying to do, is to offer another opportunity for players on top of the local choices we have (USL, MLS, College, etc...) and be exposed on training, tournaments, or friendly games in Spain.
    Remember, RCDE is here full time in Los Angeles at laufas facilities

    Minors International Clearance Process


    Any player under the age of 18 who is not eligible for the Prior to 10 clearance method will be required to go through the FIFA Transfer Matching System (TMS) in order to obtain their international transfer clearance.

    FIFA's Regulations state that international transfers of players are only permitted if the player is over the age of 18. However, there are three exceptions to the rule:

    1. The player's parents move to the country in which the new club is located for reasons not linked to soccer.
    2. The transfer takes place within the territory of the European Union.
    3. The player lives outside the country, but no further than 50km from a national border. In addition, the club with which the player wishes to be registered in the neighboring association is also within 50km of that border.
    U.S. Soccer can use exceptions No. 1 and No. 3, as the second exception deals only with players in Europe. The documentation listed below is required in order to prove a minor player qualifies for this process.

    Unfortunately, according to everything I've read, @fhr2k3 is correct. These rules were put in place to protect "trafficking" of players to European countries who eventually don't make it and end up stuck there. I suspect, though, that for truly exceptional players, FIFA may wave this.

    Maybe I missed that memo. You know, the one where the European coaches are begging to get their hands on all those professional-level kids playing in the U.S.?

    Pardon my skepticism, but this sounds like bait-and-switch to me. I'm betting that this so-called partnership to send talent to Spain is nothing more than a marketing gimmick to get kids to play at LAUFA. I simply cannot believe that Deportivo needs LAUFA's kids. The only thing I ever hear from European coaches is that our 18-year-olds are not as technically skilled as 14-year-olds in their own country.

    You must mean those kids playing in the US Soccer Developmental Academy!
    I hear they are the best of the best. Only the top 1% make it there!

    ...Okay, I'm feeling a bit bitchy ...gotta go...

    Normally about the $$$, betting RCDE is the new sugar daddy. Somebody has the pay for those park, school fields, and coaches with those hard to understand dialects even when you know Spanish.
