Lou Fusz Athletic is excited to announce Tim Lanfersieck as our Director of Star Program. Tim has spent 10 years working with these age groups, starting in 2009 in the LFA camps and clinics program under Marty Pike. Since then, Tim has continued to grow within the club by taking on the roles of Blue Star Academy Assistant Director and Director of the LFA Winter League. He has spent the last year working alongside the club’s TD David Critchley to understand the importance and differentiation placed on this program. In addition to his experience at LFA, Tim holds a USSF National D License. We are looking forward to Tim further developing the club.
The Star Program exists to identify players that are ready for the challenge of an increased emphasis on technical training and a competitive atmosphere. The curriculum is based around a technical focused training program within Lou Fusz Athletic. The academy starts for boys and girls age U6-U8. The staff is completed by coaches with former professional and collegiate playing experience. This program is the first step for a young athlete at LFA in the development pathway. The focus is placed firmly upon skill development and instilling proper techniques within our athletes, while progressing into game play. Players will build a strong foundation to grow from as they learn the core necessities of the game. The Star Program runs seasonally, with the next step being teams shaped at the U9 age group with a year commitment from player and club and an introduction to LFA Blue / Red / White Star teams.
Lou Fusz Athletic is delighted to announce Chen Zakaria as our Director of Juniors – Girls. Coach Chen will be overseeing the development of our female athletes age U6-U12. Chen has built a wealth of experience over the past 20 years dedicated to youth soccer, and has one of the most trusted & respected names in the St. Louis area. Chen conveys the Fusz Philosophy by teaching his players invaluable life lessons about fellowship and accountability, while instilling discipline and respect in his team members. It is Chen’s mission to mentor young players and provide them with the tools and learning opportunities they need to develop in to strong, well-rounded, and confident young ladies. LFA has been fortunate to work with Coach Chen since 2008 and are excited about future development with him in this role. Coach Chen has continued his coaching education and obtained his USSF National C License & USYF Level 1 Coaching License. Coach Chen will work to find the most talented coaches in and around the area; continuing to build the Girls program to the strongest in the area.

You do not need to preschedule an appointment, just stop by the facility and go to the Weight Room. This is particularly great, for example, for those players who may have gotten an injury like a sprain or pulled muscle during a game/practice over the weekend.
To find the Weight Room: if you enter the building through the doors located by the indoor field, take a right down the hall towards the bathrooms. The Weight Room will be on the left hand side across from the Men’s Restroom.
