B2015 Grey & B2014 Grey
To try out, contact Laurent directly at (213) 374-4596

Laurent was born in Montpellier, France. He was selected at age 11 to play at the National Institute of Football (INF Vichy) by Erick Monbaerts, who coached the French National U18, U21 teams as well as Ligue1 side Paris Saint Germain. 


His parents decided otherwise. Laurent still continued to play club soccer until the age of 16 where he last trained with the CAVIGAL (Nice U16 National level). He moved to Los Angeles in 1993 and played competitive soccer all over the city in multiple leagues including the semi-pro league Golden West. 


He is the parent of an 18 year old daughter, and he has been coaching soccer for the past 5 years across Los Angeles. Laurent joined One Ivy in 2023, and coaches both the B2014 and B2015 Grey teams. His knowledge of the game, his experience at the highest youth level and his pedagogy give him great confidence in his approach of teaching the beautiful game.
