SFT Host Family Opportunity

The Sioux Falls Thunder FC is seeking host families for the 2023 season. This is a great way to get involved with soccer in your community. Host families will receive free season passes to all Thunder home games. But beyond that, hosting presents a unique opportunity for families to see the sport on a whole new level and get to know a player from a different part of the country or a different part of the world. The Thunder season runs mid-May through mid-July.

Below are comments from previous host families:

Hosting one of the SF Thunder soccer plays was a great experience for our whole family, but especially our boys. James quickly became a part of the family and was a great example of what one can accomplish with dedication and determination. This was our first time hosting a player and we will definitely do it again. Mike and Melinda North

Being a host family for the Sioux Falls Thunder has been such a rewarding experience! Initially we saw this as an opportunity to give back by supporting young athletes that are pursuing their soccer dream. However, what we learned was that we benefit from the experience just as much as the athletes do. While the athlete gets to experience our South Dakota family and gets a home to stay in while in Sioux Falls, we get to learn about his country and culture as well. Our boys play competitive soccer and love to learn and experience the soccer world through a more advanced athlete. The best part of all is the lifelong friendships that are made. Eric and Suzie Hernes
