Why play MUSA?
For over ten years, the Midwest Unconventional Sports Association (MUSA) has provided quality leagues to Minneapolis, Milwaukee and the Midwest. Our goal is to add fun, competition, and maybe some drinking to your week. Events like our season ending Tarsi Cup and Golden Lunchbox tournaments, Premium Draft Season, Tournament Selection Show, and End of Season party make us more than just another league, it’s an experience. And it’s these same experiences that make it easy for you to get to know others in the MUSA family.
When are your seasons and what fields do you play at?
MUSA generally runs kickball leagues in St. Paul, Bloomington and Minneapolis
Our seasons (and notes):
- Spring- starts late April through late June with end of Season tournament in late June.
- Summer- mid July through late August. Premium draft league- individual registration, team captains draft players
- Fall- late August through late October with end of season tournament in late October
* These are the start dates so keep an eye on the site for registration roughly a month or two before the start date.
Are there minimum male/female requirements?
MUSA kickball is a coed league so there is a minimum of 4 females and 4 males on the field for a game or the team plays short. A full listing of our rules can be found here.
What kind of skill does my team need?
Skill level varies greatly with players just looking for an active, social gathering to players focusing on being the best and trying to win the Golden Lunchbox
How many players should I have on a roster?
There are differing philosophies here. Some teams look to put together that tight knit squad where everybody can make it week in, week out and wants their at-kicks. Others are more focused on assembling an army of thirsty goons. Any way you slice it, it’s all good. Typically, with 10 on the field, roster size can range from 13-20. Factors include reliability of players, desire for on field continuity and necessity for wingmen/women at post games.

What is EOS?
The End Of Season tournament and party happen after spring and fall seasons. The tournament, open to all MUSA teams, is single elimination and fields 30+ teams. There’s also a selection show before the tournament, and an after tournament party.
What exactly is the Golden Lunchbox?
Used to be back in the day that the best way to show your stuff on the playground was carrying THE top notch hunk of metal to safely protect your lunchtime vittles. The Golden Lunchbox pays homage to the top team in the league every spring and fall since the fall of 2000, but first those teams gotta take out all the other teams in contention. In its current form, the battle for the Lunchbox plays out in a single elimination tourney of 48+ teams from ALL OF MUSA’s various cities facing off to be kings and queens of the playground. There are some definite dynasties, some bridesmaids still yearning to be a bride and many others that only have the dream of a visit to the big show each season, all for a chance at the Box! This tournament takes place twice per year in Milwaukee, WI. All MUSA Twin Cities division winners are invited to participate.
