Spring/Summer Recreational Program

Overview

At Tonka United, our spring/summer recreational program provides youth an opportunity to enjoy playing in an organized and fun-filled soccer league. The recreational program is available for players in 3rd grade through high school. 

We rely on parents as volunteer coaches to help create a positive experience for each team. If interested in volunteering, please register within the registration!





Season Schedule

The official schedule will be released at the beginning of April. Games will be played Monday through Thursday nights.

The season will start during the last week of April with a schedule practice/scrimmage session for each team. This session for each team will appear as the first game on their schedules.

Teams will play once a week over the course of the season - up to nine games, not including the Tonka Blast. Teams will 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 27th. All teams will play scheduled games at the Tonka Blast, expect for those in high school. There will be a lot to do at the Blast, including concessions, food trucks, face painting, hair spray, bounce houses, and much more!

Teams will play on the following nights during the season:

3rd Grade Boys - Thursdays
3rd Grade Girls - Thursdays
4th Grade Boys - Mondays
4th Grade Girls - Wednesdays
5th/6th Grade Boys - Mondays
5th/6th Grade Girls - Wednesdays
7th/8th Grade Boys - Tuesdays
7th/8th Grade Girls - Tuesdays
High School (coed) - Mondays/Wednesdays (teams will play one of these two nights each week)

One Saturday game will be added as well - all teams up through the 5th/6th grade leagues will play a game on Saturday, May 16th.

All 3rd through 7th/8th grade games will be played at Freeman Park. High school games will be played at Minnewashta Elementary (except for the last two weeks of the season - those high school games will be played at Minnetonka Middle School West).

Teams are guaranteed seven games over the course of the season. Cancelled games will not be rescheduled, unless a team will be left with fewer than seven games.


Cost

Registration is $150 for all players in Tonka United's recreational league. Note that this does not include the cost of uniforms. 

A $30 late fee applies after registration closes. 


Uniforms

Uniforms are available through Soccer Master - you can order through their online store.
 
All players will need to order this new uniform set for the spring/summer 2020 season. The Tonka United little juniors and recreational programs typically use a uniform set for three years. Players will be required to wear the new uniform set starting this season. 

The home team should always wear the blue uniform top, and the away team should always wear the red uniform top. The game schedule will indicate which team is home and which is away for each game. We recommend players always bring both uniform tops to all games, just to be safe.


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 the 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 requests to be placed on a team with Sarah.

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


League Format

Teams 3rd grade through 7th/8th grade leagues will play 7 vs. 7, including goalkeepers.

High school teams will play 9 vs. 9, including goalkeepers.

Referees will be present to manage the game.



Picture Days

Individual and team pictures will held during the season. We will publish and email the schedule as soon as it is finalized.


Refund Policy

Tonka United has a limited refund policy. All refund requests must be submitted in writing. Refunds may be given under the following circumstances only:

- A player cannot be placed on a team within Tonka United due to the lack of a coach or insufficient numbers to fill a team (100% refund)
- Written request postmarked/dated before March 10th for Summer and August 15th for Fall (Registration Fee Minus $30).
- Prior to the scheduled date of game six (6) of the season, a player suffers an injury and is directed not to participate by a medical doctor. In order to request a refund under this provision, a medical doctor's letter must accompany the request verifying the injury and that said injury prevents the player from participating (50% refund).

Please note that refunds are not given for cancelled games or clinics.
