In an effort to support the growth of soccer in Montana, Missoula Strikers will be providing an affiliate soccer program called Bitterroot Strikers. This program will run under the guidance of Missoula Strikers staff and take advantage of the resources our club can provide in order to further enhance the soccer development and opportunities for boys and girls aged 7-19 in the Bitterroot area.

Spring academy soccer is for players born in the years 2012-2013.
