Since 2011 the LFA Midwest Spring Invitational Tournament has hosted an average of over 250 teams annually, with 350+ teams joining us in each of the last few years. This event has grown to be the most highly attended Spring tournament in the history of St. Louis youth soccer. Due to Covid-19, this event has moved from it's normal April date to the weekend of JULY 10-12 for the 2020 season. The event tuition has been reduced for all teams and everyone will play a 3 game format during the weekend. The event will continue to be hosted on all synthetic turf fields at St. Louis' newest and highest quality facilities. We will be limiting the number of accepted teams to ensure a socially distant, safe atmosphere for all attendees, spectators, and staff. We have renamed the event the 'Midwest Summer Invitational' for this year and look forward to hosting you.

Athletic Trainer Services
Children's Hospital & Washington University Physician's Young Athlete Center will be providing the Athletic Training services at the tournament.
Our weather guidelines are aligned with those suggested/used by USSF, MYSA, & SLYSA. Adjustments made to games due to weather are at the discretion of the tournament committee (comprised of Tournament Director, LFA Staff, and Young Athlete Center's ATC staff). It is our intention to provide a fun, playable, safe environment for all teams participating to get the competition they have come in search of. All games will be played on state of the art artificial turf fields…No rainouts! However, because all fields are playable during the rain, game stoppage can still occur due to hazardous conditions such as lightning/ thunder or temperature levels. Weather updates will be sent via email/text messages through your GotSoccer account. As such,
• Games could be delayed or shortened. Games could also be rescheduled for a later time/date that weekend.
• Games played until/beyond halftime can be considered final at the moment stopped if necessary.
• For games played in U14 and younger divisions, adjustments/cancellations will be made when expected game time temperature is 18 degrees cold index with windchill. For games played in U15 and older divisions, adjustments/cancellations will be made when expected game time temperature is 14 degrees cold index with windchill.
• Any additional changes to the schedule deemed necessary by the LFA Tournament Committee will be exercised with as much notice as possible for all teams involved.
