If you have an aspiring Mia Hamm or Landon Donovan on your hands, see a professional game at Stub Hub Center. LA Galaxy is mid-season with lot of opportunities to see some great matches at home. And for little kickers, don't forget AYSO sign ups are in just a month. Or check out some of our favorite local soccer classes and workshops for kids.
