East Ridge Soccer Club Announces Partnership

The East Ridge Soccer Club and St. Croix Soccer Club are excited to announce a Partnership starting Fall 2018-2019 season.

This partnership will provide a pathway for our players to continue to improve while also providing opportunities to train and play at the highest levels while accessing both clubs outstanding facilities and coaches that these clubs have to offer in the Eastern part of MN as well as Western part of Wisconsin.

East Ridge Soccer will continue to be a community based club. The mission is to create a positive culture among two local clubs by creating an inclusive platform to grow the game of soccer.

"We feel with the new age of soccer that working together for the same goal is something that we want to do and working with John Cater and the East Ridge coaching staff and board will be something that would be great for all the players that are in both organizations" Nathan Klonecki, Sporting St. Croix Coaching Director.
