In 2019 our teams will be playing their 8th season in USL Super-Y League as the St. Louis Lions Elite Academy.  The season for the league runs parallel to the USL League 2 season where our St. Louis Lions have successfully competed for the past 13 years.  Games and training typically begins after the spring leagues and State Cup tournaments to enable players from all clubs to participate.


The St. Louis Lions Elite Academy is committed to improving and providing young elite players from all youth clubs in the St. Louis area the best possible training to help them improve as players and to move them to a higher level of play.  There have been many of the St. Louis Lions Elite Academy players represented at the national ODP camp held at the IMG Academy. 


The St. Louis Lions Elite Academy involves 2-3 training sessions a week.  Tryouts will begin on Monday, June 10th with the training to start after tryouts are completed. This usually occurs after regular club tryouts are over and will go through the beginning of August.  There will be 8-10 games per team.  There are no games the week of the 4th of July.  When we need to travel we play 2 or 3 games in a weekend in order to still allow people to experience the summer.


Coaching Staff: St. Louis Lions Elite Super Y teams are coached by highly trained and experienced coaches.  All coaches are trained, and licensed through USSF or the Scottish Football Association, in player development and provide a positive player centered environment.
