Coach[edit]

  • Colombia Juan Florez - Head Coach[4]

Coach Florez brings with him an abundance of experience, both as a coach and player, previously earning multiple playoff appearances as head coach of both the San Fernando Valley Eagles (USISL) and the San Fernando Quakes (PDL). Florez also held tenure as head coach of the LAFC affiliate LA Blues (now the OC Blues) and currently serves as head coach of the LA Galaxy’s Conejo Valley Pre-Academy. Florez struck out on his own at 18, leaving his home country of Colombia to pursue a shot at American collegiate sports. He capitalized on a chance at Cal State University Northridge, where he led the Matadors to the NCAA Tournament finals as a starting midfielder, then went on to play for two professional Colombian teams, Millonarios and América de Cali. Florez returned to CSUN as an assistant coach and offensive strategist, where he would help guide them to back-to-back tournament appearances and craft one of the top offenses in the nation.[4]
