Malibu AYSO alumni Britty Walley and Issy Thompson have permanently joined forces with the Girls Under 12 Chivas USA Futbol Academy of Newbury Park. Recently, Team Chivas USA successfully challenged all of their opponents at the Eagles Summer Classic in Camarillo, right up to the finals.

In the championship game Team Chivas USA took the Camarillo Eagles gold team to a 1-1 tie 59 minutes and 30 seconds into the match. A penalty kick as time expired came between the team and the cup, but the underdog Chivas USA won the respect of the tournament and their opponent.
