Hello, my name is Tom Hallberg and I am pleased to be serving as president of our Lakes United Futbol Club for the next two years. I have lived in the Lakes United area for most of my life. Ever since I was a kid playing community ed soccer out in Linwood, this sport has captured my interest and attention. Over the years, soccer's taught me a great deal about myself and others -- I feel the game has made me a better person.
I am excited and enthusiastic to be giving back to a club right here on the turf I first played on!! Besides co-captaining the first competitive high school varsity team (FL '86), I also directed the summer program for Forest Lake's Community education department.
In college, I had the opportunity to play soccer at St Thomas, on a premier u19 team with Arden Hills, and right up here in the Tri-County Men's league. We played our games at the CL middle school, Columbus, and the old soccer field in North Branch across from the ice rink.
Although I live in Forest Lake, for the past 15 years, I have run a branch office for Edward Jones Investments in Lindstrom across from the Swedish Inn. My children are 11, 15, and 19. My interests include outside activities, like bird hunting with my dog Trixie, hiking and skiing. I enjoy music, food and travel.
There is much work to be done in carrying on the development of LUFC. Please contact me or any of our board to get involved. We do need and ask for your help!!
All the Best,
