Yes, I will be very flexible and can arrange the schedule around that.
Can I bring on subs if needed?
Yes, they just need to sign a waiver.
What is a Free Agent?
Do you want to play, but only know a few or no one else that does? Well sign up for as a Free Agent, and I will match you up on a team that is looking for a few more people, or combine all the Free Agents to form a team if there are enough. Can become a free agent with some of your friends, and I'll ensure you all play together.
Is alcohol allowed?
Beer is allowed in Tower Grove Park! As long as it is not glass bottles, as glass bottles are not permitted anywhere in the park. Our league is very beer friendly as long as it adheres to that! Here's a list of more Tower Grove Park rules: http://towergrovepark.org/images/pdf/rules.pdf
I've never heard of Firstlove Sports, what is it?
I saw a need for a different soccer league in the city. The only other league in town was a bit too far away, and much too expensive. I searched and searched, and found no other leagues. I've been playing rec sports multiple times a week for years, so I've figured out the ins and outs of the leagues and what I, as a player, would want. So I found available fields at Tower Grove Park, and went from there.
What kind of name is Firstlove?
Well the idea was born out of a sign I saw at STL Style, a great local shirt business. It read 'firSTLove', so read it as St. Louis was a first love. Thinking more about it, My first love growing up was playing sports, particularly baseball. So thought the name was appropriate in many ways.

What are your goals for the 2017 season?
