Due to the generous support from club sponsors

We are very happy to able to provide FREE UNIFORMS to ALL PLAYERS who sign up for our Spring or Fall Competitive Programs

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 (U9’s-U15’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 fluidity for players to move between teams in age group

Coaching:

Staff Coaches

• Work with a specific team in development group

• Assist director with evaluating players

• Implement sessions & provide feedback

Age Group Development Director

• Create and implement session plans, club curriculum
