Summer Soccer Academy

Brainerd Blast in partnership with the YMCA-Brainerd Parks and Rec

The YMCA-Brainerd Parks and Rec summer soccer program, in partnership with the Brainerd Blast, is for 5 to 10 year old’s and is all about development and fun.  In Brainerd, the sessions are held at Jaycees Field. There will also be a program in Baxter on at Southdale Park.  All sessions begin with interactive activities that improve individual soccer skills.  Each session will conclude with small-sided games.  The price includes a t-shirt that your child can keep.    

This program is run cooperatively with the YMCA & Brainerd Parks and Rec. Training sessions will be facilitated by varsity level high school players along with a YMCA program coordinator. 

**All players will need to wear shin guards, soccer cleats (no toe spike like on football or baseball cleats) and bring water to drink during practices. If you want to get them a soccer ball to practice at home with, we recommend a size 3 ball.  Volunteer coaches get half off their child’s registration fee! 

Detailed information for 2024 can be found at the following link. All registration for Summer Soccer Academy is done through the YMCA’s website.
