SO WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE CLUB? The short answer is: HAVE FUN.
We now have 17 teams from ages 5-12. There are 6 boys teams and 11 girls teams. Our goal is to have at least one team for every age group. While the Club tries its best to find a team for every child that wants to play, teams that play in SLYSA have roster limits that are set by the state of Missouri. In order to comply with these rules, we have had to cut players. For teams not playing in SLYSA (U8 and below), everyone plays on a team and there are no tryouts.
We stress technical ball skills at the earliest ages through Dutch training excercises. We have found that this leads to a more confident player. To re-inforce this training regimen, coaches from Dutch FC Utrecht travel to Webster Groves each year to evaluate our players and to help train our coaches.
The future is bright for the Club. Our current number of teams is only missing a couple of ages as we continue to grow from the younger ages up.
