Welcome to Soccer Alliance Missoula!
Soccer Alliance Missoula, also known as SAM, is a collaboration of soccer organizations in Missoula working to remove barriers to playing organized and free play soccer, improving access to new and existing soccer facilities, and celebrating our broad and diverse Missoula soccer community.
We build community through the “World’s Game” using the soccer ball as our common language.
SAM members include youth soccer clubs, adult and youth recreational soccer leagues, University of Montana Griz Soccer, and informal groups that support playing soccer to enhance community. SAM's mission is to share resources about soccer programs and playing opportunities and to remove barriers preventing young and old from playing more soccer.
Improving Facilities for Playing Soccer
SAM works to improve access to facilities by creating mini-pitches throughout Missoula and supporting facilities that allow for year-round play. A needs assessment and survey was completed in spring 2023. The results can be found here.
