Tonka United Soccer Association

Overview

U13 and Older Players at Tonka United can participate in three different competitive soccer programs. The Elite Program, the Academy Program or the Select Program. Placement in these programs is based on tryouts that takes place each July/August.  Our goal at Tonka United is to give our families and players a great soccer experience by placing players at suitable levels for success. All of our Competitive Programs at these ages focus on teaching players how to compete, play together and solve problems - with an emphasis on creating skilled and smart soccer players through the mastery of technique and decision making.
