2021 Season Info:
Practice: Teams will practice on average two times per week from late March until the conclusion of the season for 90-120 minutes a time. Most practices will be held on weeknights (typically Tuesday and Thursday) with dates, times, and locations set once the teams are selected. Bloomington and Hopkins have been our primary practice sites in years past.
Team fees: Team fees for the 2021 season will be determined in the late fall/early winter once teams are selected and a tournament schedule is set. Half fees will be due by Dec 1st to secure roster spots with the balance due March 1st. Payment plans can be arranged as needed. The fee will cover everything except an AAU card ($16) and player expense to out-of-state tournaments. All players will get a gear package which includes a shooting shirt and backpack which will be theirs to keep at conclusion of season. Uniforms and practice jerseys will be turned in at the end of the season. Fees are expected to range from $850-$1250 based on number of tournaments played and amount of travel the team will do.
Tournaments: Metro Stars teams typically play between 8-10 tournaments from April-July. Teams will play in both local and regional/national tournaments based on age level and team level of play. Final tournament schedules for each team will be set by in early 2021 after teams are formed and head coaches weigh in on tournament schedules.
