To Our Coaches, Athletes, Families and Supporters,
In an effort to keep our FCLB members safe and protect the health and well-being of everyone, we will be closing down the club until further notice. This in accordance with the Cal South guidelines and local resources.
As we continue to follow the activity of the Coronavirus each day via the CDC website and local news resources, we will continue to send out club updates. We are in close contact with the partnering school districts and Cal South to ensure we have a complete understanding of when it will be safe to resume training and competition.
It’s the responsibility of our club to monitor this situation closely as it pertains to our athletes and families – thus making it of the upmost importance we know every detail before we allow our players back on the pitch. Updates will be provided, as new information become avaliable.

Triad Fit Kids was founded in 2016 in Orange County California with the mission of providing healthy lifestyle training opportunities for kids. Public schools and the government in general seem to be so overwhelmed and focused on other things that the actual health and vitality of our kids is suffering.
In 2017 and 2018 they ran strength and conditioning programs for youth sports teams with an emphasis on functional movement to avoid injury. Now FC Long Beach can help the cause by donating any old cleats, uniforms or anything related to soccer to help these kids.
