Our mission is to provide a safe and encouraging environment for youth soccer players to develop their soccer skills and develop valuable life skills. The Thief River Falls Soccer Association (TRFSA) works to provide the necessary facilities and tools in order for our players to have the best experience possible.

Our club was established in 2003 in order to provide soccer for Thief River Falls and the surrounding areas. We are an affiliate member of the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and United States Youth Soccer (USYS). We are a volunteer run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation registered through the state of Minnesota.

Time Commitment & Responsibilities

Board meetings are once a month and last 1-2 hours, depending on the time of year. Each board position has different time requirements during the season that can range from 5-15 hours. Example: the Registrar will help more during February-April during our registration time and the Field Coordinator keeps the fields lined from April-July. When all board positions are filled, it is much easier to keep the time commitments low.


Board members receive a credit for one player registration each season.
