The SLSG Jr Friendlies has continued to evolve over the years as a great way to kick start the spring season. The sole purpose of the event is to allow clubs and teams to come together over the first weekend in March and play quality, competitive matches that not only foster a challenging environment for the players; but allows the coaches a platform to put player development first and results second.
Originally, the event started with three to four age groups on the girls side and has now grown to six age groups on the girls side and three to four age groups on the boys side. With the growth of the event and the inclusion of a Professional Men's game and a Women's College Soccer game, the event will be divided between both the WWT Soccer Park in Fenton, Missouri and Creve Coeur Park Soccer Complex in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Both facilities provide excellent fields and amenities and therefore it is no surprise why players, coaches, teams, clubs and families love this event as an early spring warm up for the rest of the spring season.
