Minnesota Thunder Academy was created as a model for player development based on the structure of successful European and South American academies. MTA’s model for player development has proven successful with more players advancing to play collegiately, professionally, and on national teams than any other club in the Upper Midwest.
Ages 8 through 12 are the most critical development years of a soccer player’s career. It is at these ages where the basic fundamental skills of soccer are mastered that allow players to compete and be successful as soccer players at the next level of play and where they develop a true love for the game. This year-round program is designed for players ages 8-12 years old who have a higher level of ability, commitment, and interest level in soccer. This program helps prepare players who aspire to play on MTA’s Boys ECNL, Girls ECNL or Minnesota NPL teams (Boys & Girls).
The Minnesota NPL program at MTA typically consists of two teams at each age-group (U13-U19), one per gender. All teams train year-round, consistently challenge for State championships, and compete against regional and national opponents. No Minnesota club has been more successful at developing elite players and teams than MTA.
Minnesota Thunder Academy is proud to be the only Minnesota club selected to compete in the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) with both Boys’ and Girls’ teams.
In 2009, the Minnesota Thunder Academy girls program was announced as an inaugural member club of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), the highest level of female youth soccer in the United States.
