The mission of the Faribault Soccer Association (referred to as FSA) focuses on the best interest of all youth participants in soccer. FSA helps all youth participants develop their skills as soccer players to the best of their capabilities and to gain an appreciation of the game of soccer as a team player. FSA strives to inspire youthful participants with the fundamental principles of teamwork and fair play, while having a focus on fun.
Shattuck St. Mary's, along with the Faribault Soccer Association, is once again offering their Winter Camp to area athletes. This camp, from 7pm to 8pm Mondays beginning January 3rd, 2022 through February 21st (8 weeks), will work on skill development and promote enjoying the sport of soccer. Fee for the 8 sessions is $40 dollars. Please see the registration link for more details.
Welcome to our New Web Page! Please browse and check out the content, more will continue to be added! In addition to this, we wanted to let families of current and future soccer players know of some exciting new changes with our program!
First, we are switching our website to a new, hopefully more informative and easier to use site. The new site, using SportsEngine design and hosting service, is a popular youth sports webservice that many Associations and Youth Sports Organizations are using. It allows you to seamlessly link accounts for various sports and groups. It will also make registration seamless and provide more information for you as members of the Faribault Soccer Community.
Second, we are pleased to announce that Faribault Soccer is joining the Southern Minnesota Soccer League (SMSL). This League is made up of South of the Metro teams, following the “Hwy 14 Corridor” and promises to reduce travel and have competitive leagues. We are excited to be part of this new league, which has also been joined by almost all regional and Big Nine communities.
Third, we are starting a new program, called the Faribault Soccer Academy. This program, for 9 and 10 year-old players, will be a bridge between our hugely successful Little Feat Program and full traveling soccer in the new SMSL. The focus of the academy is skill development with decreased travel to help the transition and respect the time of our families. The Academy would most likely participate in a couple of one day weekend mini tournaments with other Academy programs, within 25 miles of Faribault.
The goal of these changes is to allow our players to experience the fun of soccer while building on skills and learning teamwork in a positive environment. Having programs that take our youth from the young age of 3 and 4 (Tiny Feat), all they way to High School (Faribault Falcons Boys and Girls High School) will help learn skills, build camaraderie and improve not just the level of soccer in our community, but grow the game and nurture our players to be the best they can be.
