Blake Soccer

Home Page Photo Blake Boys’ Soccer is rich with tradition, and players, parents, and coaches in the program are passionate about continuing to leave behind a strong legacy. High levels of success have been accomplished by individuals and teams well beyond the mere number of goals scored and wins recorded. Record interest in playing soccer at Blake allows us to field five teams (Varsity, JV, C, and two Middle School squads), making us one of, if not the, largest sports program at Blake. That being said, we find the appropriate team for any boy who wants to play. We have also worked hard to establish a sense of connectedness between all teams in the program.

The importance of being a team, on and off the field, is of utmost importance not only from a tactical perspective, but also in meeting goals of building lasting relationships. A recent player stated “I love the guys on the team and the coaches as people and I have never been pushed so hard to play for anyone but myself before this team.” Yet another boy said that he “really valued the opportunity to grow as a player and person and got to learn how to better take on leadership roles in the attempt to win.” Overall, individuals and teams value goal setting and work hard to realize those milestones. Some of our core values include sportsmanship, commitment, and using athletic experiences to learn important life lessons.

We are consistently considered a serious contender for the conference title in the most competitive Class A conference in state, the Tri-Metro. Blake has advanced to the State Tournament several times in recent seasons, claiming the Class A State Championship in 2008 and finishing as runner-up in 2007. During the 2012 season the Varsity team finished 10-5-3 and hopes to make a run at the conference title in 2013. We regularly produce several college players each year, some of which are currently playing at St. Olaf, Colby, and Bethel. We are very proud of what Blake Boys Soccer stands for and coaches and players come back each season eager to accomplish bigger and better things.
