Brainerd BLAST summer travel soccer is a program designed to be fun, skill building and competitive. Youths of all skill levels are welcome to play and compete in our program. Brainerd BLAST believes all players should have the opportunity to play and improve their skills. Teams typically practice 2-3 times per week and play in 3-4 weekend tournaments each summer. Practices start in April with tournaments in May-June. Players may elect to join teams entering optional tournaments in April and July.
