What is the Competitive Program?

The Competitive program is our flagship program which offers both Fall & Spring competitive soccer for children born between 2001 & 2011. This is easily our largest & most successful program which recently received State & Regional success in the Spring 2019 season. These teams will receive regular & planned coaching in from Billings United coaches & travel throughout Montana & beyond to compete against the best there is to challenge these aspiring athletes & to give them a great fun experience while being part of our inclusive & supportive Billings United community.

How does it work?

Assessment:

Players are assessed according to their birth year (Player’s are grouped into birth year groups)

Grouping:

Players are then grouped according to developmental level:

• U9’s-U15’s need to train with players of similar ability

• Multiple teams are created within age groups based on ability

• There is some fluidity for players to move between teams in age group based on their potential development during the season.

Coaching:

Staff Coaches

• Work with a specific team in development group

• Assist director with evaluating players

• Implement sessions & provide feedback
