The Brainerd Blast Fall soccer program is a competitive experience for your soccer player, and there are two age groupings offered by the Brainerd Blast.
In addition to training and practices, all teams will participate in the Fall Cup, held at the National Sports Center in Blaine.
The girls tournament will be held the weekend of September 24-25, and the boys tournament will be held the weekend of October 1-2. Please mark these dates on your calendar!
The Lake Superior Open soccer tournament was held June 24-26 in Duluth, with all 13 Blast teams participating!
As always, this is a very challenging tournament, and also featured mixed age brackets, with many of the Blast teams facing older club teams.
Despite the challenging schedule and weather, the Blast continued to improve and prove that our teams can handle the higher level of competition.
Five of our Blast teams placed in the top 4 of their respctive divisions, led by two Runner Up finishes by the U19 boys team and the U12 boys team.
It was a great tournament season for our Blast club, and now our players move on to the fall Blast club season, middle school and high school soccer teams in Brainerd!
Thanks to all of the Blast players who participated in the 2022 Concordia College soccer camp.
The weather cooperated and all of the participants received college-level skill and concert training!
