According to the White House, the visit is an opportunity to continue the president's tradition of honoring sports teams and their efforts to give back to communities.

Following the ceremony the teams will host a clinic on the South Lawn for Let’s Move!, first lady Michelle Obama's health and wellness initiative. Children from youth sports programs around the country will participate, according to the White House.

The Kings won the 2012 Stanley Cup for the first time in the team's history, beating out the New Jersey Devils 6-1 in Game 6.

The Galaxy won their second straight MLS Cup last December, defeating the Houston Dynamo 3-1. It also marked the final official match for the famed David Beckham, who spent six years with the league.

Obama teased the soccer superstar during last year's White House visit after the team's 2011 championship win.

"We also have a young up-and-comer on the team, a guy named David Beckham," Obama said, according to USA Today. "I have to say I gave David a hard time — I said half his teammates could be his kids."
