Juniors Academy Phase 1 (U6-U8) East & West


Juniors Academy Phase 1 East & West

Going into the 2022/2023 season we are excited to announce the expansion of our Juniors Academy Phase 1 Program (U6-U8) which will now be split into two locations with each being identified as the following:

- Saint Charles FC East (Saint Peters/Cottleville)
- Saint Charles FC West (Wentzville/Saint Paul)

All of the juniors academy phase 1 players and teams will still fall under the one umbrella of Saint Charles FC and all will be overseen by our Juniors Academy Director and trained by our Juniors Academy staff.

Each U6-U8 team, at both locations, will train once a week at their respective location during the fall and spring. On top of their one regular practice, the U8s would come together for an optional second session once a week in Saint Peters/Cottleville. Once East & West teams reach the U9 birth year and enter into our Juniors Academy Phase 2 they will come together to form 7v7 teams that will be based on ability.


As Saint Charles County and surrounding counties continue to grow the purpose of this change is to make Saint Charles FC more accessible to younger players throughout St. Charles County and beyond.

How It Works

When parents go to register for Saint Charles FC Juniors Academy Phase 1 Programming  via LeagueApps you will have three options to select from:

1. Saint Charles FC West – Wentzville located programming.

2. Saint Charles FC East – Saint Peters/Cottleville located programming.

3. No preference on location and player is placed based on roster needs.

Players will then be placed on teams and practice within the locations they have selected above.


Phase 1 Program

This program will introduce players to a team environment and the Saint Charles FC curriculum. This phase will create passion for the game and introduce players to teamwork while continuing to build on fundamentals all in a positive environment. ALL teams will be trained by our Juniors Academy Director and Saint Charles FC staff. Teams will have team training once a week with league games primarily on the weekend.
