MNSA Travel Soccer is a competitive program with both boys and girls teams playing in fall leagues. Travel provides the opportunity for advanced instruction, playing with your peers, and the ability to play other local clubs (typical drive time is within 30 minutes) in the area.

Teams are placed in divisions that are matched to the skill level of the club and travel offers teams that range in age from 8 to 19. The teams are selected through an open tryout in April and May and MNSA encourages everyone to try out to so that we can assess and match each player’s skill level to the appropriate League Divisions.

Practice is twice a week and typically play one game a weekend with travel teams having the added advantage of optional extended summer practice, and local tournaments.
