LHSA x Red Bulls Youth Programs

LHSA is one of the original clubs with Red Bulls when they transitioned away from the MLS Camps model.  We have been training partners for over 16 years, and use them to train all our players (both programs) and coaches (Red Print sessions).

The partnership has benefited our club in many ways over the years, from helping build our clubs philosophy and culture, to providing experiences such as supplementary clinics and game day coverage. The partnership provides players the inspiration and support needed to maximize their potential. In the past, the Red Bulls have been a wonderful partners by providing us with autographed jerseys, autograph balls, and game tickets for our special events.
