The Force Soccer Club Offers:
Force Soccer Club is an MYSA sanctioned soccer club formed in 2017 as the result of the merger between Rebels Soccer Club and Northwest Kickers Soccer Club. Both clubs have a rich history dating back to 1955. We provide youth in the Brooklyn Park, Champlin, Osseo, Dayton and surrounding communities the opportunity to reach their full potential as individuals and soccer players through a positive soccer experience.
Tryouts for the 2019 summer season are held immediately after the end of the 2018 summer season, in late July/early August.
The tryout fee covers the cost of administering the tryouts and is a NON-refundable fee to all traveling players. Every traveling player must have paid the tryout fee, whether or not they attend tryouts, in order to be considered for placement on any Force traveling soccer team.
Tryouts to be held at Zane Sports Fields. Tryout check-in will occur by Zane fields 6 and 7. Players are encouraged to attend all scheduled tryouts for their age group.
The tryout fee does NOT commit a player to Force Soccer Club, nor does it guarantee a player a position on a Force team. It simply pays for the cost of administering tryouts.
Following tryouts, families can check this page to see if their player has made a summer team and if so, which team. At that point, each player and their family will make a decision to either accept or decline the offer by the listed deadline. The player/family will then have until the deadline to accept or decline the offer by registering online.
No action by the player/family will be treated as the position being declined.
Serving the Northwest suburbs since 1955!

A: Age groups are defined by the MYSA Birth Year Guidelines for the appropriate season.
Q: Will my child be able to play with his/her friends?
A: While teamwork is very important, keeping teams together starting at U9 would not be beneficial. Individual kids develop at different rates and grouping players based on their developmental level at the point of time is in the best interest of the individual and the team. This gives the opportunity to all players to be both challenged and successful.
