♦ Fall Youth Academy Program ♦
(birth years 2014-2010)
The Montana Surf Fall 2021 Youth Academy Program focuses on individual technical skill and personal development, while beginning to introduce tactical concepts to our athletes.
The Youth Academy program provides a high level of professional coaching and is designed to take advantage of the Golden Age of Skill Development, while gradually increasing competitiveness by introducing games against nearby clubs. The goals of the program include player development, fun and minimization of costs. Players in the Montana Surf Youth Academy can expect to travel 5-7 out of the 12 weekends, and to play nearby on the remaining weekends. We typically do not travel further than Helena, Billings, Great Falls, or Missoula for Saturday games, with optional tournaments being the exception.
League Play: Montana Surf Youth Academy participants with birth years 2011-2009 will participate in the Montana State Youth Soccer (MYSA) fall season. MYSA will be responsible for scheduling league games throughout the state.
Friendly Play: Montana Surf Youth Academy participants with birth years 2014-2012 will play in weekly friendlies throughout Helena, Great Falls, Missoula, Billings, and Bozeman during the fall Season.
