Rec Program

Dear U6-U7 Parents,

Minneapolis United Soccer is gearing up for another season!  We anticipate that we will have enough players to create about 22 teams.  This means that 44 coaches will be needed for this age group alone.  We require 2 coaches per team.  We currently have only 11 volunteers.

The one hour experience for the U6-U7 players includes a half hour of drills and a half hour of small-sided games of 3v3 players (no goalie).  This format was implemented a few years ago to allow more touches on the ball, and more opportunity to score goals.  

We provide training at our annual meeting, as well as a manual with suggestions for fun drills.  The meeting will be held the evening of May 15 (more info coming).  Please consider volunteering for this fun experience.  Coaching with a friend is even more fun!  Don't worry if vacations might conflict since you can always ask a parent to fill in for you. Registration information is available on our website under recreation. (coach resources)

Thanks so much for considering this opportunity!

Kit Lowen
