Woodchips SC St.Louis was founded in 1996 in the recreation leagues in Fenton. Soon after WC teams began competing in the select divisions of local leagues with much success.
In 2006 WC St. Louis reached it's peak at 58 teams and began using the name WC St. Louis. A simple name change from Woodchips to WC St. Louis showed a large spike in teams. The following year a number of teams split off to form their own club. WC St.Louis averaging about 40-50 teams per year. While many clubs have had to merge over the years to stay afloat WC St.Louis has remained a family friendly club that parents and players can be proud of. There are several Corporate backed soccer clubs much larger then WC and many many smaller clubs in the Metro area. WC St.Louis has had long distance players that have played for our club and travel here each week for 1-3 years. Indianapolis, Sikeston, Cape , Springfield, MO, including 9 current Rolla players.
