Saint Paul Blackhawks Soccer Club

Blackhawks Experience

Blackhawks is the oldest soccer club in the state of Minnesota. Our immigrant roots are strong and continue to be an important part of our soccer club. Blackhawks is an urban club, committed to inclusiveness and to the development of players who have the skills and desire to play soccer at the highest level.

The three cornerstones of training are technical, tactical, and character development. Our players learn leadership skills, how to play as a team, and to respect all players, coaches, and refs involved in every game. Most teams have a core group of players, comprising more than half the team, who have played together since they were 9 years old. By the time they are 18 years old, they will have grown up together, likely traveled to Sweden/Denmark and out of town tournaments together, and developed deep friendships. At the same time new players and families join every year and are welcomed and embraced by the teams. In our club culture our teams both celebrate together and support each other through the tough times, on and off the field.

The Blackhawks Player & Parent Experience

Players

As a player you will experience a community of players who are dedicated to soccer and their teammates. Many of our players started at U9 or with Little Hawks. They have grown up with the club and have strong friendships throughout the age group. We train all year round starting at U11 and start traveling to out of town tournaments by U13.

We hope you will join our Blackhawk community, bringing with you both family members and friends.

Parents

Traveling soccer families find themselves volunteering, driving players to games, and cheering from the sideline. Being a soccer parent means washing uniforms, having family dinners at odd hours, and helping out when other players need rides. Summer weekends include tournaments and summer vacations can end up revolving around games as players become older and more serious about the sport.

Volunteering

Blackhawks rely on volunteers to perform tasks essential to delivering a quality soccer experience. Serving on the board of directors, managing a team, maintaining fields, assisting coaches at younger ages groups are a few of the ways you can make a difference in the club. Some tasks require a fair amount of time, others do not. The important thing is to volunteer at a level that is comfortable for you.
