About SoCal Youth Sports

We want to challenge the current youth sports status quo and redefine and rebuild grassroots sport.

We are passionate about creating a child centered, engaging and enjoyable environment for children, that is professionally coached affordable, available & accessible to everyone

About Matt Bambrick - CEO & Founder

Hello parents! I'm Matthew Bambrick, the CEO and founder of SoCal Youth Sports Solutions. From my early days in England, where the love for soccer is contagious, through my 15 years of coaching, I've committed to supporting and building a love and joy for the beautiful game.

Creating Lifelong Memories through Soccer

Some of my fondest memories involve playing soccer. This isn't just a game; it's a transformational experience. I remember fondly my earliest memories playing with friends at Red House Park. Putting on the green and white hoops for Holy Name, pretending to be my favorite players.

I want to ensure kids today get the same immense value and support I was offered as a child.

How I Coach & My Experiences

I employ child-centered philosophies like Teaching Games for Understanding and Constraint-Led Approaches to coaching soccer. We focus on enjoyment, engagement, and "jumping into their world." Soccer becomes not just a game, but an immersive, exciting learning environment.

My stints with Premier League clubs provided invaluable insights and experiences, enabling me to make immediate positive impacts on young players in Southern California.

My time with Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion amongst the many programs I worked with in the UK have been a wonderful education. I learnt how to build programs and support children in soccer in the best possible way. My degree in coaching football for development as well as my mentorship with John Devine - Former Manchester United Academy Director and Ex-Arsenal player - are experiences that support me day after day to give the kids the best environment we can offer.

"Well Done, Are the two most important words in sport" - Sir Alex Ferguson resonate deeply with me. Through giving children responsibilities--like looking after their water bottle or holding themselves accountable--we focus not just on soccer skills but also on building character and sportsmanship. Soccer offers a blend of chaos, fun, goals, and opportunities for kids to emulate their heroes. Well done can often be the two words a kid may need hear most in their day.

My Aims

In a sports world often obsessed with the elite, our focus at SoCal Youth Sports is to build a broad, loving base for the sport. We aim to create the next generation of soccer stewards by providing exceptional opportunities that lead to a more understanding and engaged community. We want to build life long fans of the game.

Your choice in a sports program will have a lasting impact on your child's life. Choose SoCal Youth Sports Solutions, where we aim for more than just athletic skill; we build character, joy, and a lifetime love for soccer.
