We have produced multiple National Team, Regional Team and professional players. Many of our players have gone on to play college soccer at the D1, D2 or D3 level.
MTA players also have connections to national player identification programs ID2 and ODP.
Competitive Environment and Coaching
Our club attracts the highest talent level within Minnesota and therefore our players benefit from playing with other skilled players under the guidance of our professional coaches.

Why come to MTA now?
Many Community clubs say they offer year-round training. However it is difficult to replicate the training environment or level of coaching that players receive at MTA. Each year at the U13-U19 levels, players come from clubs across the Twin Cities in hopes of making our elite teams. Many of these players come without the proper technical foundation and therefore are not good enough to make our Elite teams. They may be the best players at their community club, but it is often too late technically for these players to compete at the Regional and National levels where our teams compete. We give our U9-U12 players their best chance by properly teaching the fundamentals at this critical stage of a player’s soccer development.
