Throughout the year Minnesota United FC conducts numerous youth program activities, i.e., community camps, residential camps or elite training programs. Participation in any one of these may lead to an opportunity to trial with our Academy as we include a talent discovery initiative within each of these programs.
Prospects identified through any of these programs are handled in a manner similar to scouted players. The player’s club will be contacted prior to the player being offered a trial opportunity.
We encourage pre-registration, but welcome onsite registrations for an additional $50 administrative fee. All onsite registrations will be required to complete the MNUFC waiver and release of liability before to participating.
If there is a cancelation seven days prior to the start of camp, your registration fee will be refunded, minus a $50 non-refundable administrative fee per participant. There will be no refunds for cancellations within seven days of the first day of camp.
You will receive an email confirmation two weeks prior to the start of camp with all necessary information. There will be an onsite check-in table with an MNUFC administrator to greet you prior to entering the field.

Camp will take place as scheduled rain or shine. If there is lightning, we will bring the campers into a safe place until 30 minutes after the last strike. If lightning persists, camp will be cancelled during that day and we will notify parents if there is a weather cancellation via email to pick up your child. There are no refunds or makeup dates regarding inclement weather and have to cancel if the host club, school, or organization closes their fields.
