Academy History

The St. Louis Academy Fastpitch organization was started in 2008 by Scott Sullivan, founder of the St. Louis Baseball & Fastpitch Academy. Since it's inception, hundreds of players have worn the St. Louis Academy uniform, many of which have gone on to play at the collegiate level. 

The mission of the St. Louis Academy Fastpitch Organization is to provide players the opportunity to achieve their highest potential. Through proper instruction and training, all athletes can develop their skills and heighten their game. St. Louis Academy brings this philosophy to reality. 

Founded in 1998 by Scott Sullivan, Dennis Dierkes, Shane Eames & Lance Schuermann, The St. Louis Baseball & Fastpitch Academy opened in a 10,000 sqft facility on Lemay Ferry rd. Within a few short years, the demand for training in South St. Louis County become evident.

In the fall of 2006, Scott & Carol Sullivan took ownership of The Academy and relocated the institution to a 22,000 sqft facility on Reavis Barracks Rd. For the following 13 years, SLBFA trained thousands of students and provided a quality facility for instructors to rent space on a month to month basis. SLFBA officially closed in August of 2019, after more than 20 years in operation. Scott Sullivan continues his passion for coaching and training through the fastipitch organization properly named: St. Louis Academy.
