Maplebrook offers youth players a more competitive soccer experience than that of Parks & Recreation soccer program. Our teams are members of the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and play league MYSA games against competitive (travel) teams from other soccer clubs.
MYSA has six geographic districts. Maplebrook teams generally play in the North District, but may be placed in another district based on MYSA’s recommendations. Depending on which district a team is placed (i.e., North or West), a team can play teams from the north and west suburbs and outlying areas (i.e., Blaine, Champlin, Brooklyn Park, Edina, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, St. Cloud or Duluth).
Summer competitive Teams (u9-u19)
This is our main competitive soccer development program. This program starts in the end of November with team technical trainings and Club-Provided Trainings though the middle of April in our indoor sports facilities (which are included in our team registration fees). These training are provided by highly qualified professionals and each team typically receives between 10-15 hours of Club-Provided training.
Players involved with summer competitive teams typically compete on an age appropriate team in the North District of the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and play teams in the northwest suburbs as well as outstate teams from Cambridge/Isanti to Duluth.
If you are interested in playing on a summer team for MapleBrook, please plan on attending our player evaluations in late July. Additional details can be found on our Tryout page.
Please note the registration fee covers the cost of tryouts, club-provided training, MYSA membership, and club operating costs. The registration fee does not cover uniforms, tournaments, or other team expenses. Each team will prepare a detailed budget before the season starts so you know what your total costs will be.
FALL COMPETITIVE TEAMS (U9-U19)
The fall competitive season is a shorter and less intense pace than the summer competitve season. All the soccer games are played on Saturdays and Sundays. The normal schedule is six games for the season, with the complete fall season being about eight weeks long.
Team placement for fall competitve soccer is generally based on team team placement after tryouts.

The Maplebrook Blast program operates in 4 sessions throughout the year (Outdoor Fall, Indoor Fall/Winter I & II, Outdoor Spring/Summer). Through small sided games and skill development led by our professional staff, we want a kid's first years of soccer to be some of their most memorable. And not only that but we want kids prepared technically and (soccer) socially for their competitive years starting at U9. A new and exciting experience in sports... one that instills proper soccer and fitness in kids for years to come... we hope you'll join us! (Note: Parents are welcomed to participate too! While helping, our parent coaches get to experience an encouraging environment as they learn from the professional staff.)
Blast Program (5yrs-8yrs)
This portion of the Maplebrook Blast program is comprised of (4 vs. 4) soccer games that are fun and competitive and includes skill sessions that teach the fundamental technical soccer skills. Each week, kids will get a skilled warmup and technique before the big game - as our emphasis is on playing! Teams are divided based on age, gender, and skill level (friend requests are welcome). No previous soccer experience is required.
Blast Academy training

Our Blast Academy Training emphasizes the development of sound technical skills and tactical awareness to establish the foundation that players will need to thrive in the u9 traveling program. The 7s & 8s will receive even greater skill development and personal assessments. More professional style training...better coach to player ratios... progression will have your kids ready for the next level of fun and skillful soccer!!
The Maplebrook Goalkeeper Program has been constructed specifically to enable the youth goalkeepers of MPB to grow, develop, excel, succeed, and, most importantly, enjoy the position, no matter what level and or age group the individual is playing. As the program expands toward the future, we plan to continue to build our goalkeepers from within the club, beginning at the U9-10 level. Maplebrook Soccer offers brief seasonal goalkeeper training for younger players with an interest in goalkeeping. This allows players to get a feel for the unique position before making the decision to be a goalkeeper.
TRAINING AND CAMPS
Throughout the year we offer high intensity technical and tactical sessions, with the goal of learning the "ins and outs" of what it takes to play at the highest level of soccer - whether it be club, high school or college. For latest training and camp info, visit maplebrooksoccer.org
