TEAM PLANS 2022-2023
Our team plans linked below cover the most important details for age group and competitive level teams. Teams/team plans are based on 2 models including commitment to playing, competitive level of the teams/players, and financial commitment relative to the team that best fits our members.
ALL TEAMS will have the same winter training opportunities as we move into a new winter training facility located at the National Sports Center (NSC) indoor turf at either the NSC Dome or NSC Sports Hall.
COMPETITIVE TEAMS (COMP)

Teams generally compete at the common competitive level of play within the Twin Cities Soccer League (TCSL) and are encouraged to play in local tournaments within Minnesota, or what the team decides as a whole. These teams will have coaches that are required to participate in our Lakes United FC Coaching Education Program and encouraged to participate in US Soccer or United Soccer Coaches coach education program.

Those age groups that have a FALL TCSL option (U13 and lower) will have the ability to select a "No Fall" option during the team registration process if a player cannot play in a fall league. There will be a discount to adjust the team registration fee.
A Fall only option is only available if roster sizes allow at U11-U13 and please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
