It is our mission to promote, provide and teach soccer in the "Spirit of the Game." FUN, FAIRNESS and SAFETY. We provide recreational and competitive soccer for players; boys and girls ages 9-19. We strive to provide the best competition for all players at their level of play.
With 2020-2021 Tryouts completed registration for the 2020 Fall and 2021 Summer Season's is now open! If you are looking for a new soccer experience and prefer a club based on fun, development, diversity and affordability, try North East United! We take players of all ages and skill levels and host both competitive teams as well as recreational.
All rules of Phase 2 apply except as noted below.
○ Contact is allowed within the training environment.
○ Clubs/teams should still keep pod sizes to 25 and intermixing between pods should be kept to a minimum.
○ Starting on June 24, scrimmages/matches may resume. Please note that the pod/gathering size requirement only applies to training's/practices, not scrimmages/matches.
○ Adhere to social distancing recommendations when participants are not playing (on the bench, sideline, etc.).
○ MDH recommends the following phasing:
■ Starting on June 24, begin with inter-team scrimmages as part of practice.
■ Two weeks later, focus on playing teams in your local community, local club, or local organization.
■ After another two weeks, consider expanding to teams beyond your local community, but consider COVID-19 case activity level and risk in those communities when making travel decisions.
■ We encourage everyone to follow this phased-in approach, to not only comply with MDH’s guidelines, but also to prevent injuries as players haven’t played soccer with contact for some time.
○ MDH recommends the following behavior modifications for scrimmage/match play:
■ Teams and referees are not to engage in traditional sportsmanship gestures, such as post-match handshakes. Teams are encouraged to find new ways to show sportsmanship, for example give a wave or “air-five”.
■ If spectators do attend, they should limit the retrieval of soccer balls should they go out of play and let the players retrieve the ball.
○ Minimize crowding at games and practices as best as possible.
■ Spectators should follow social distancing recommendations including the wearing of masks as well as maintaining at least 6 feet of physical distance from each other.
■ Athletes, volunteers, and coaches must follow facility requirements regarding wearing cloth face coverings or facemasks. Even if not required by the facility, athletes, volunteers, and coaches are expected to wear cloth face coverings or facemasks as much as possible when not participating in games.
■ For scrimmages/matches, try to have staggered starts and ensure that there is the possibility for social distancing amongst all spectators if they are present.
■ If scrimmages/matches are to have referees, contact your assignor. The Minnesota SRC has released guidelines for referees should matches have officials during this Phase.
○ Follow the guidelines outlined by the hosting facility in terms of capacity and other social distancing measures.
