Spring/Summer Recreational Soccer Program

Tonka United offers a spring/summer recreational league. This program is open to players in 3rd grade through high school. The season starts in late April and wraps up at the end of June.

Registration for the 2019 spring/summer league will open in January 2019. Players should register for the grade they are currently enrolled in (for example, a player currently in 4th grade should register for a 4th grade league).

All teams are coached by parent volunteers - you can register as a volunteer while registering your child for the league. Tonka United will host a mandatory meeting for parent volunteer coaches in early April, a couple weeks before the start of the season.

Note that league details are subject to change.




Season Schedule


The season will start the week of Monday, April 29th, with Kickoff Week. Kickoff Week is an opportunity for players to meet teammates and coaches and for Tonka United to help prepare coaches and teams for the upcoming season. The Kickoff Week session for each team will appear as the first game on their schedules. During Kickoff Week, teams can use that time as a practice, or to scrimmage with the other team on their field, or both.

Including the Kickoff Week session, teams will play nine games - one each week of the season. Teams also typically practice once per week during the season. Volunteer coaches will work with their teams to organize a practice schedule.

The season ends with the Tonka Blast, a year-ending festival, on Saturday, June 29th. All teams - except for those in the high school league - will play scheduled games at the Tonka Blast. There will also be a lot to do at the Blast - concessions, food trucks, face painting, hair spray, bounce houses, and much more!


Cost

 

For all players in our recreational league (3rd through 12th grade), registration is $145. Note that this does not include the cost of uniforms (more details below).

A $30 late fee applies after registration closes.


Uniforms


Uniforms will be available through Nicklasson Athletic. The complete uniform set costs $45.


Note that the Tonka United rec program typically uses a uniform set for three years. The current uniform set was first used for the spring/summer 2017 season. If you ordered a uniform set since then, you can continue to use the same set. (This also means that we will use this same set for the fall of 2019 before ordering entirely new uniforms for the spring/summer of 2020).

Opportunities to order uniform will come as we get closer to the start of the season - keep an eye out for future emails. Players are required to wear the current uniform set.


The game schedule will indicate which team is home and which is away for each game. The home team should always wear the blue uniform top, and the away team should always wear the red uniform top. Tonka United recommends always bringing both uniform tops to all games (just to be safe).


Game Information


Teams in 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th/6th grade, and 7th/8th grade leagues will play their games at Freeman Park. Games will start at 5:45 PM or 7:15 PM.

Teams in the high school coed league will play their games at Minnewashta Elementary School. Final game times are to be determined. Games in this league will be played on two nights each week - teams will play on either Monday or Wednesday during a given week.

Grades might be combined, depending on registration numbers.

Teams will play on the following nights:

 Day Boys Girls
Monday 4th, 5th/6th, HS (coed) HS (coed)
 Tuesday 7th/8th7th/8th
 WednesdayHS (coed) 4th, 5th/6th, HS (coed) 
 Thursday3rd3rd 

Note that games will not be played on Memorial Day (teams that play Monday games will play that game another night). Game nights and times are subject to change.


Team Formation


During the registration process, you are given the chance to designate one friend with whom your child would like to play. During team formation, we will honor only one mutual friend request. This means that that friend must request your child as well in order for that request to be honored (for example, Sarah requests to be placed on a team with Anne, and Anne request to be placed on a team with Sarah).

Beyond the friend request, Tonka United will also try to place players on a team with at least some other players from their school. However, registration numbers and the number of players from each school dictate final team formation.


League Format

 

Each week, teams will play one game - 3rd grade through 7th/8th grade will play 7 vs. 7 (including goalkeepers), and high school will play 9 vs. 9 (including goalkeepers). Referees will be present to manage the games.


Picture Days


Individual and team pictures will be done on Saturday, May 11th. The picture schedule will be posted and sent out when available.
