play at the highest level
The Club Atletico STL U19 boys program will be one of the highest levels of youth soccer and the pinnacle of the youth system this summer, providing a clear pathway to being a semi-professional player with a direct connection to the NPSL Senior team. With a seamless transition from youth to semi-pro, it will consist of exceptional players from U16 to U19. The CASTL-U19 program will offer a complete developmental model for aspiring youth players who want to play at the game's highest levels.
The program's focus is on improving key physical aspects of soccer performance including speed, strength, agility, and endurance. It will also include video analysis, and classroom sessions and has an experienced coaching staff. The 2-month season will typically last from Mid May to Mid July, corresponding to the college and youth leagues.
It will be a truly professional environment and offer a complete approach to preparing players physically, mentally, technically, and tactically for the next level, with the ultimate goal of pushing players into the Senior team and onto other professional teams.
BUILDING THE PATH TO PRO
The Path to Pro is further refined and realized for our players within this program. A select number of players will gain experience playing at the semi-professional level with Club Atletico Saint Louis in a local regional summer league against other semi-professional teams consisting of NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA, and former professional players.
The U16 - U19 age range prepares players for college, semi-professional, and professional soccer environments. Club Atletico STL encourages players to challenge themselves in every training session or game. Our players are also able to benefit from interacting with our NPSL players who actively take on mentorship opportunities and allow younger players direct insights into what playing at a highly-competitive level is like. Our U16 - U19 program also serves as a launching platform for players with collegiate ambitions or a desire to play in these pre-professional leagues.
