Chivas USA in the Schools!

On Wednesday, April 15, players and coaches from Chivas USA visited four Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) middle school campuses to kick off an exciting partnership that has set high goals for its participating student-athletes.

All four schools that were visited by Chivas USA are home to the Team Prime Time after school program, which is offered to the students in partnership with the Beyond the Bell branch of LAUSD.

Highlights of the partnership between Chivas USA and Team Prime Time, which is called the Chivas USA Academic Academy, include ongoing player and student interaction, math readiness programming and year-round, on-campus soccer participation. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to visit a Chivas USA home game during the current 2009 season.
