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. Even with the growth in team participation, 90% or more of the games are hosted at the WWT Soccer Park in Fenton, Missouri. With such a high frequency of games scheduled in one location, with the facilities and amenities provided by the WWT Soccer Park and Soccer Park Grill; 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.
