Summer Rec League & MU Juniors

MU Summer Rec Update

MU Summer Rec & Little MU Kickers Families,

On Thursday night, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) announced that it will not open their fields this summer for group/team activities. Then on Friday, MRPB released a response that their fields would be open in some capacity. MU is awaiting direct communication and clarification from MPRB. 

In the meantime, MU is exploring two alternate options in the case Pearl Park is offline this summer: 

  1. Exploring alternative field locations

  2. Canceling the Summer Rec and Little MU Kickers season

*In the scenario that MU moves to a new field complex and a family does not want to participate or the season is canceled, MU will issue a full refund. 

Please remain optimistic that Summer Rec and Little MU Kickers will remain at Pearl Park this summer. Our great team of staff is still working hard to ensure the season is set up and ready to go come the start of the season. Once more information is available, MU will provide an immediate update. In the meantime, think happy thoughts, be safe, stay healthy, keep social distancing, and remain connected.
