Summer Travel League

Brainerd BLAST summer travel soccer is a program designed to be fun, skill building and competitive. Youth of all skill levels are welcome to play and compete in our program, from U9 to U19, girls and boys!

Brainerd BLAST believes all players should have the opportunity to play and improve their skills.  BLAST teams feature age and skill appropriate placement.

Teams typically practice 2-3 times per week and play in 3-4 weekend tournaments each summer. Practices start in April with tournaments in May-June. Players may elect to join teams entering optional tournaments in April and July, and there is also a possibility of weeknight games in June through the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA).
