The Boys Soccer program is fun and competitive. We encourage, motivate and teach players valuable life-long skills such as teamwork, responsibility of one’s behavior and developing leadership. Our philosophy is communication and open dialogue between teammates, coaches, parents and everyone in between. We believe that coaches are role models for athletes and each other. We emphasize sportsmanship and Christian faith.
The mission of the Minnehaha Academy Middle School Boy’s Soccer program is to utilize sports to aid in the spiritual, educational, social, and athletic growth of our student-athletes, exhorting them to maximize all their gifts. The focus is on developing the total player, not just the athlete.
Captains practices begin the second Monday in August. Additional practices are scheduled over the summer.
There are tryouts that occur the first week of official practice.
Varsity plays on the North Campus Soccer Field (Guido Kauls Field); JV and B Squad play at Fort Snelling.
