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 - age 18. 

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 season will start during the last week of April 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 the week, teams can use that time as a practice or to scrimmage with the other team on their field, or both. 

The official schedule will be released at the beginning of April. 

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

Teams in 3rd-8th grade leagues will play games at Freeman Park, Shorewood. Teams in the high school coed league will play games at Minnewashta Elementary School, Shorewood, and games will be played on two nights each week. Note that games will not be played on Memorial Day (teams that play Monday games will play that game another night).

The season ends with the Tonka Blast, a year-ending festival, on Saturday, June 29th. 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!


Cost

Registration is $145 for all players in Tonka Untied'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 Nicklasson Athletic. The online store is currently closed, but will open again in early April. 

The complete uniform set costs $44.95. Note that large and extra-large sizes are not available thought the online store. If you need one of these sizes please contact the Tonka United office, where we have the sizes available for purchase. 

All players will need to order entirely new uniforms for the spring/summer 2020 season.The Tonka United recreational program typically uses a uniform set for three years. The last uniform set was first used for the spring/summer 2017 season. Players will be required to wear the new uniform set starting this spring. 

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 alway 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

3rd-8th grade will play 7 v 7 (including goal keepers).
High schoolers will play 9 v 9 (including goal keepers). 
Referees will be present to manage the game.


Picture Days

Individual and team pictures will be in May. The picture schedule will be posted and sent out in April.
