Rookies Fall Registrations Open

Join our Fall Rookies Program to learn individual ball handling skills (dribbling, passing, shooting and more) in a fun atmosphere that focuses on proper technique! We have an excellent coaching staff and maintain a player to coach ratio of 10:1.

All programs are open to the public and include (6) 1-hour training sessions. All players in the Fall Rookies Program have the option to play in (6) games on a Rookies team formed with their practice group. All players must register individually and pay in full; there is an option to list your friends to be with during registration. Registration includes a practice/gameday shirt. Players will be separated by age and gender (depending on number of participants).

Saturday Morning Games Players that register for Practice & Games option will play on Saturday mornings in St. Louis's DVLPMNT League. Hosted at the LFA Soccer Complex on fields 6 / 9 / 10, the league brings together teams in the LFA Rookies Program, the Star Academy, and other local teams. More info about the league or to sign up an entire team can be found on the STL DVLPMNT League page.
