Recreational (Bandits): Updated for Fall 2022
Bigfork Soccer Club offers a recreational soccer experience for those players that are new to the game or are looking for a soccer experience with less of a commitment than our competitive program. The goal of our Bandits program is help kids fall in love with soccer in a pressure free environment. Players will be exposed to all positions and playing time will be divided equally. Our coaches are encouraged to focus on having players spend as much time on the ball as possible and to have as much fun as possible doing so!
Who: The Bandits program is open to all Pre-K through 4th grade players, boys and girls. Teams depend on participants and available coaches.
Practice/Games: Bandits teams practice twice a week at Carlyle Johnson fields or Swan River School in Bigfork. Games are Saturdays in Bigfork, Kalispell, Columbia Falls, or Whitefish.
Season: Six weeks from September into October.
Gear: Bandits registration includes a jersey. All players are required to have cleats and shin guards for practices and games.
Fees: $95 (includes jersey).
Coaching: The Bandits program relies on volunteers, mainly parents, to coach the teams. We understand that this can be an intimidating step to make but encourage anyone interested to give it a shot! We will host a coaching clinic and season overview prior to the season to get everyone all ready to go! Coaches also receive a 50% discount off one player’s registration fee. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Bigfork Soccer also offers competitive play through our Storm program. This fall, the Bigfork Storm in participating in the Northwest League with games across the Flathead Valley, Plains, and Libby. Go to our STORM PAGE for more information.
