Spring/Summer Recreational Soccer Program

Tonka United Spring-Summer Rec 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. Our spring-summer recreational soccer program caters to more than 1300 youth soccer players, ages 4-18, residing in the Minnetonka and Hopkins School District areas and nearby communities.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!

General Information

Registration: Each year, registration opens Mid January - March 1st (approximate). Pre-School registration is open through April (because of later start date).

Start of Season is late April and runs through June. 

Coaches:  All of our coaches are volunteers. Coaches will receive their rosters approximately 2 weeks before the season begins, usually around the end of March. 

Schedules:  Schedules will be posted on the website Mid April.

Kick-off Week:
 The purpose is to help prepare coaches and teams for the upcoming season. Pre-Kindergarten and 1st Grade teams will work with a Tonka United trainer (coaches are expected to attend). Teams and players will run through fun games and activities and end in a full-field scrimmage.  2nd-12th grade will have scrimmages on their game nights.  Coaches are expected to be there to assist Tonka United Staff coaches to get games started.

Games: The season consists of 9 - 10 games and concludes with a league tournament, the Tonka Blast, the last Saturday in June.  Games are typically played one night per week.

Practices: Teams are responsible for setting up their own practice schedule and location 1x per week throughout the season (optional). Practices are held at local parks and schools, usually within the Hopkins and Minnetonka School District areas. 

Volunteers: We are always in need of volunteers to fulfill the following positions: coaches, assistant coaches, team managers, and assistance with the Tonka Blast.  If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the online Volunteer Registration found on our website after completing your child’s registration. Thank you!

Registration



AGE GROUPS AND PLAYING NIGHTS ARE NOW BASED ON PLAYERS' CURRENT GRADE!!

Team Selection: Registration is based on the grade the child is currently enrolled in (If your child is in 1st grade - register him as 1st grade). Players may designate ONE friend with whom they would like to play. That friend MUST request your child as well to be honored. There are NO multiple requests accepted. Teams are then formed by gender, grade and school whenever possible.  We try to keep schoolmates together; however, we cannot always accommodate these requests due to the large number of players that participate in our program as well as the varying numbers of kids for each grade and school.

Players will be notified of their team at least two weeks prior to the start of the season by his/her coach.
