The club is affiliated with St. Louis Scott Gallagher and is currently ranked at state, regional and national levels. The club’s players have been recognized for their excellence with hundreds of local youth earning athletic scholarships at the NCAA Division 1, 2, 3 through NAIA or Junior College levels.
“In selecting an anchor youth club, we were continuously impressed with the KC Scott Gallagher program – from local to national-level wins to a curriculum focused on developing well-rounded athletes on and off the field – they continue to amaze us,” said Flip Short, CEO of Paragon Star. “This has been an ongoing conversation for the last few years, but we are thrilled to make it official and have signed a long-term agreement.”
Aligned Core Values
KC Scott Gallagher is driven by their “5 Shield Values” of tradition, humility, respect, unity, and passion.
