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!
For kids ages 8 - 11 (possibly those age 7, if ready). This program is for players with birth years of 2012 (U11), 2011 (U10), 2014(U9), and 2015 (U8).
Practices start the week of August 24th, with practices twice per week from 5:30 - 7PM at Forestview School on the 7th/8th grade fields. (Southwest corner of complex at the corner of Mountain Ash and Mapleton in Baxter).
The Brainerd Blast is also excited to form teams for U12-U15 as well. We offer this program as an add on to the local school programs, as a way to culminate their fall soccer season with a trip to play in the Fall Cup at the National Sports Center in Blaine.
For the 2022/2023 school year you must be 5th -8th grade and excludes those playing at the high school level (JV or Varsity).
Practices are more limited for these ages, due to the players participating in the other school programs, and will be mainly held in the weeks leading up the Fall Cup.
