We offer three tiers of soccer experience: developmental, recreational, and competitive.
Our developmental tier is for all the kids born in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. We call it u8 (under 8) because those players are under 8 years old on the first day of the year - Jan. 1st, 2023. These players don't form a team, don't travel, and aren't expected to have as much commitment to the program. Our primary goal for this group is to help them learn personal soccer skills in a very safe, fun, and low stress environment. Their parents are encouraged to hang around and watch, or even participate with them if needed. Players can attend practice as much or little as they desire, and missing a practice doesn't affect their ability to attend the following practice (there is no group progression - simply individual development). The experience should be very enjoyable and low-stress for all involved. Cost is $50 and every player gets a club t-shirt. There is no deadline to register but we appreciate your registration by mid-March to ensure a properly sized shirt. You must be registered to participate. Training sessions will be every Monday and Friday from 3:30 to 4:30 starting April 14th and finishing on May 19th. They will be held at Kiwanis Park near Highland Park School. Cancellations for inclement weather will NOT be made up.
Our recreational tier is our u10 team composed of players born in 2013 and 2014. These players begin to focus on team concepts, practice as a team, have a few games, and travel to some out-of-town games. They'll attend the end-of-year state tournament (Showcase) on June 17th and 18th (location TBA). This group is still focused mainly on developing personal soccer skills but is starting to develop team skills. Players don't need to make every practice and every game, but being absent will limit what they can learn from the program and will adversely affect the team. Cost is $90 before January 1st, $100 on or after January 1st, $50 for practice only. There is no deadline to register but early registration helps to ensure a spot on the team and allows us to plan which teams we will register - PLEASE REGISTER ASAP, AFTER JAN 15TH WE MAY BE FORCED TO CLOSE REGISTRATION TO THIS TEAM! Training sessions will be determined by the coach(es) but the season will run from early April to June 18th. They will practice at Kiwanis Park near Highland Park School. The Showcase tournament will be held on June 17th/18th (location TBA) - PLEASE COMMIT TO PARTICIPATE TO THE END.
Our competitive tier is made up of players born in 2004 to 2012. It is expected that these players and parents will be commited and dedicated to all trainings and competitions. Older teams will practice in worse weather conditions, start the season earlier and have longer practices. Our coaches still try to keep the fun-factor, and safety is always our first priority, but as the team age increases so does the intensity and focus on winning games. Cost is $190 before January 1st, $200 on or after January 1st, $100 for practice only. There is no deadline to register but registration by January 1st greatly helps ensure a spot on the team and allows us to plan which teams we will register - PLEASE REGISTER ASAP, AFTER JAN 15TH WE MAY BE FORCED TO CLOSE REGISTRATION TO SOME TEAMS!
- The u12 team will be made up of players born in 2011 and 2012. This group will have games starting April 15th and will compete in the Showcase Tournament on June 17th/18th (location TBA). Players will work on building both individual and team skills and perhaps specialize in a team position (keeper, forward, back, etc.) Practice 2-3 weekdays for about an hour and play most of the Saturdays from mid-April to mid-June. The Showcase tournament will be held on June 17th/18th (location TBA) - PLEASE COMMIT TO PARTICIPATE FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON.
- Depending on the number of players registered by January 1st we will form 2-3 teams from players born in 2004 through 2010. These players will face tough competition, practice 3 to 4 days a week and travel nearly every Saturday from April 1st through June 11th. The season ends with the Classic Cup June 10th/11th (location TBA) - PLEASE COMMIT TO PARTICIPATE FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON.
We participate in the state's "classic" league which means the teams are typically co-ed, from smaller communities or clubs, and contain 2-4 years of ages on each team depending on turn-out. Safety is everyone's first concern and there are very few injuries due to rough play (although it does happen). We typically play teams from Sidney, Havre, Miles City, Billings, Laurel, Red Lodge, Livingston, Butte, Great Falls, and Helena. We often car-pool so every parent does NOT have to attend every game. However, parents are strongly encouraged to lend a hand however they can ( we need coaches, referees, field marshalls, photographers, reporters, fundraisers, and others... let us know how you can help!) Clubs that have a high participation rate among both kids and adults tend to be more tight-knit, fun and successful. Please do what you can to make our club successful! Check a volunteer box in your registration or contact a board member to see what you can do to help. Thank you!
*** If we are restricted, for whatever reason, and don't play in the state tournament (ie. our club is refunded by MYSA) and we have a partial season then everyone's registration fees will be proportionally refunded or held in the club's account to be applied to the following season's fees. Your individual choice to not participate does not necessarily trigger a refund (there may be exceptions for medical reasons, etc.).
You will need a current player photo (school portrait is excellent), insurance information, and proof of age (if not submitted previously) to complete your registration. Note: a registration may be started now and completed on a later day. * But only those completing registration will be allowed to participate. Payments must be made by check or money order (via USPS mail or one of our convenient drop-off sites). If you would like to make multiple payments please contact our registrar.
We have a scholarship fund available for those who would like help with their fees at this time. Please contact our club's registrar to get the application form or print it off here. All requests are kept confidential and based on current need only.
