TONKA UNITED RECREATIONAL SOCCER PROGRAM

General Recreational Soccer Information 

The purpose of the Tonka United Soccer Association (TUSA) rec program is to provide an opportunity for young players and their families to have fun while learning about soccer. TUSA operates independently of the Hopkins/Minnetonka Rec and Chanhassen Park & Rec, under the support and direction of the TUSA Board with the help of a full-time Director of Operations, Director of Coaching and Rec Director. The club relies on parents as volunteer coaches to help provide a positive experience for each team.  Email us at rec@tonkaunited.org to become a volunteer coach today!

Other Important Information

At TUSA, we play small-sided games to give players an opportunity to get more "touches on the ball". All players should play about the same amount of time in each game and should have an opportunity to play in each position. This is a NO score, NO standings, NO protest league.This rule applies to coaches, parents, players and spectators

While our rules are based on the FIFA Laws of Soccer, they have been modified to establish an environment for a healthy, fun program as well as create opportunities for every player to be successful. Click HERE to go to the Rules page.
