BREAKING NEWS

The boards of the Tri-County United Soccer Association and the Monticello Soccer Club (River Eagles) believe together we can become a dominant force; therefore, we are excited to announce the merger of our two organizations!

 

The two clubs have been providing great soccer opportunities to the youth on both sides of the Mississippi for many years. We strongly believe that as a joint organization we can better serve the communities surrounding the Mighty River, opening opportunities to increasingly align players with teams that fit their skill level, while also giving more options to players of all levels. Your new soccer club will be called “Great River SC”, since we will be serving youth on both sides of the greatest river in North America. This new name will become fully effective in the 2020 season.

 

As with all mergers this will be a prolonged process, and we are just at the beginning. There are many steps already in motion to make this as seamless as possible for all players and parents, but for now we can say that this year there will be no significant changes to previously announced viable teams. These teams will continue as assigned and will be branded with their current clubs uniform and logo for the 2019 season.

 

In the few age groups where one club does not have enough players to make a viable team, these players will be placed on the most appropriate team regardless of that team’s current brand. In addition we may ask for some volunteers from a few age groups to join teams to even out the rosters. These requests will only come if one club has a very large roster and the other club has a very small one.

 

Any player signed up now that has a jersey and is moved to a different roster by choice or because there is no team available to them, will be provided the appropriate jersey at no cost for the 2019 season.

 

If you have any questions about your new club, feel free to ask any board member. MSC board members will be available to answer questions in person during team meetings next week. TCU board members will have a public forum on Monday October 22th from 6 to 7:30 at the Big Lake High School lecture room.

 

More exciting information and details coming soon. We are looking forward to providing an enhanced soccer experience for all youth on both sides of the Great River!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REGARDING THE TCU & MSC MERGER


Below are some of the most common questions that members have asked regarding the merger.  Additional questions will be added as we receive them.  Please feel free to email you question(s) to the President of the club to which you are currently registered.

  1. How will the merger affect the team that I am currently rostered on for 2019?
    A limited number of competitive players will be merged together for the 2019 season. This will be done only as necessary to have viable teams, providing all interested players an opportunity to have a squad, and avoiding a player missing out on the 2019 season.
     
  2. How will teams be decided in the 2020 season after all the final details of the merger are completed?
    Beginning with the try-outs for the 2020 season, all players will participate as a single group and will be evaluated together for teams in the new club.
     
  3. Will the name of the new club change from what we currently have?
    The merged club will have a new name.  The name will be, Great River SC.  The name was chosen in a joint effort between the two club boards to keep the Mississippi River as a part of the culture of our new club.
     
  4. Will the club logo change?
    Yes, effective for the 2020 season.  A new logo will be developed thru a logo contest that will be open to all players in the two clubs.
     
  5. How will the merger affect the use of fields that we have played on in the past?
    Due to the increased number of teams expected with the merger, the existing fields utilized by both clubs will not be sufficient to support games and practices for all teams.  Field usage in the Monticello, Big Lake, and Becker communities will be needed.
     
  6. As an existing player, will I have to purchase a new uniform this year?
    No, the respective club will provide a set of jerseys to each player that has to move to a team that has the other club’s uniform.  These jerseys will be provided free of cost to the players that are moving for the 2019 season.  All players will purchase a newly designed uniform for the 2020 season.
     
  7. If I am new to the club, will I have to buy a uniform for the 2019 season and then another for the 2020 season?
    No, if you are new to either club this year, you will be rented a uniform for the 2019 season so you do not have to make a large investment in a new uniform for one year.  You will purchase the new uniform for the 2020 season.
     
  8. Will registration fees change for the 2019 season?
    No, registration fees will remain the same at each of the clubs for the current soccer year.  New fees will be set for the 2020 season by the new Great River SC soccer board of directors.
     
  9. Does the merger affect Recreational soccer as well as Competitive soccer?
    Both programs are part of the merger, however, recreational soccer logistics will be discussed and modified, if necessary, by a committee established by the new board. 
     
  10. How will the current soccer board of directors be affected?
    There will be one board formed between the two clubs to give representation to both organizations.  Open positions will be advertised once the merger details are finalized.
     
  11. Will current TCU players get to use the indoor facility for winter training?
    Yes, players and teams that are registered with TCU will be given use of the indoor facility for winter training the same as the MSC players. The fees for indoor facility use will be worked out with the TCU board.
