Summer Recreational Soccer

The Brainerd BLAST summer rec program is for 4 to 10 year old and is all about development and fun.  Sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Baxter Southdale Fields.  All sessions begin with interactive activities that improve individual soccer skills.  Each session will conclude wtih small-sided games.  The price includes a t-shirt that your child can keep.   

This program is run by Grant Gmeinder, the HS Girls Varsity Coach, and assisted by coaches from our competitive program as well as HS players.  

**All players will need to wear shin guards, soccer cleats (no toe spike like on football or baseball cleats) and bring a water bottle or sports drink to practices. If you want to get them a soccer ball to practice at home with, we recommend a size 3 ball.
