Players: 1st - 2nd Grade

The Little Juniors Soccer leagues are the entry-level, foundational program of Tonka United. Developmentally appropriate technical skills are learned and applied in small-sided games. The primary focus is on fun, enjoyment and developing a love for the game of soccer. Junior Development players are sub-grouped by school grade level:

  • Junior Development I = 1st graders
  • Junior Development II = 2nd graders

Junior Development Formation & Cost


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. No daisy chains!

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



Fall: $150 *

*Uniform cost is separate from season registration fees. Players can order the current uniform kit online from Soccer Master.
