Fall Football and Kickball ARE Playing!

Softball, Volleyball, Soccer and Hoops remain on hold for now.

Good protocols in place since June have resulted in ZERO reported infections to date from league play. No play means fewer mental, emotional and physical health options for you. Plus, the current shut down financially impacts our referees/umpires - the majority are people of color. Do you agree that you want to be active and healthy? Please contact STL County 314-615-5000 webmaster@stlouisco.com and demand access to healthy physical activity!
