New numbers from the St. Louis Youth Soccer Association show the sport is growing at a fast pace. SLYSA Executive Director Johann Arnason said in an recent interview on KSDK channel 5 that the league had more teams this spring than ever before with 625. Arnason said that means about 10,000 kids and teens played in the league that operates in Missouri and Illinois. That’s a huge increase from 2010 when there was roughly 6,300 players on 397 teams.

The amount of teams in SLYSA since 2010:

2010 Spring – 397
2010 Fall – 437
2011 Spring – 444
2011 Fall – 459
2012 Spring – 439
2012 Fall – 490
2013 Spring – 475
2013 Fall – 580
2014 Spring – 625
