TONKA UNITED SOCCER ASSOCIATION

Club Communications | February 05, 2022


GREETINGS:

Much of the buzz around Tonka United right now is around spring and summer. Spring schedules and summer tournaments for the competitive program. Spring registration for the little junior and recreation programs. Summer camps for all. A quick step outside and the blustery weather snaps us back to the reality that we are still in the middle of the winter here in the midwest. Bundle up and enjoy the present moment while looking forward with excitement to things to come this spring!

COMMUNITY HIGHLIGHTS:

2022 UNITED SOCCER COACHES CONVENTION

A delegation of Tonka United leadership, including directors and coaches, spent valuable time at the annual convention in January. The proudest highlight for Tonka United as a collective, was having Mauricio Lozada, TUSA U11-U14 Boys Age Group Director, give a presentation at a classroom seminar, serving as the current Chair of the Latino Coaches Advocacy Group.


TONKA TIDBITS:

  

SIDELINE PROJECT

Do your part to make our youth soccer sidelines better. Take the pledge.

When parents were asked, “What needs to change on the sidelines?” the response was a resounding, “Eliminate the hostile behavior.” Yes, of course, hostile behavior is absolutely not tolerated. And… what about the much more prevalent distracting behavior on the sidelines? What is the difference? LEARN MORE AND TAKE THE PLEDGE HERE!
