Our Approach

The Alton Fighting Irish Soccer Club provides technical skills development through a disciplined training approach for youth players in the Greater Alton-Godfrey, IL region. Our training includes footwork and ball skills, speed and agility, balance and coordination, proper defensive technique and goalie training.

Competitive League Games

Our teams compete in the St. Louis Youth Soccer Association (SLYSA), one of the largest and most respected youth soccer leagues in the Midwest. Teams are placed in divisions based upon skill level. They travel from as far away as Quincy, IL and Cape Girardeau, MO because of the league's ability to create competitive games for all skill levels.
