Fall 2016 Recreational Program

Come join the MN Thunder Academy Fall Rec!

MTA Recreational soccer provides professional coaching in a recreational setting.  Practices will be coached by our MN Thunder academy staff with the help of Alumni and volunteer coaches.  MTA staff has been developing players who love the game of soccer for over 20 years.  We understand each child is playing soccer for a different reason, and have developed curriculum appropriate to build all players skill levels and help them develop a passion for the game of soccer.  

Volunteer coaches will be trained by MTA coaching staff, and will be provided with weekly training sessions, consistent curriculum. 


  • 6 Week program
  • Kick-off event: Saturday, September 10
  • Practice: Tuesdays - September 13 to October 18
  • Games: Saturdays - September 17 to October 22
  • Picture Day: September 24

Each week players will have a practice that focuses on improving their individually ability as an athlete and soccer player.  They will have Skills Drills, Shooting, Speed/Agility Training, and small sided games.  

Game day: 
Two teams playing one another in a friendly and safe environment.  Scores will not be kept as our focus is on equal play time and success using the skills from training days in a game setting.

Team Formation:
We will place players on teams before the season starts but may move players throughout the season in order to keep a competitive balance. Our goal is to create fun and competitive games each week for all the kids to enjoy playing. 

Volunteer Coaches Needed:
Each team must have one Volunteer coach within the program.  Volunteer coaches will assist MTA staff during practices and be a constant connection to their team's players and be the team leader.
