Nothing bad can happen when you possess the ball. This is the foundation to Tommy Howe’s coaching philosophy, and Sporting St. Louis’s approach to the game.
At the younger ages, too many clubs and too many coaches play to win, cashing in on raw athleticism and short-changing long-term development and technical ability. At Sporting we train to maintain possession in small, tight spaces, to work the ball out from the back, to master soccer’s most hard-won skill, movement off of the ball.
Sporting St. Louis is a member of the Missouri Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and U.S. Youth Soccer. For this year, MYSA has set Saturday, June 18th, as the first date for open tryouts for the Eastern District. Tryouts will be conducted at SPORTPORT International.
