Flathead Rapids

Whitefish, MT 

Mission Statement

The Flathead Rapids organization has a vision that goes far beyond that of a typical soccer club. We are a portal for high level soccer players that have graduated through the club, high school and collegiate levels that return to the Valley during and/or in between their playing career. We give them an unsurpassed opportunity to continue to play while providing them with the ability to give back to the soccer community through one of our many annual programs. Our goal is to future-proof the soccer community while keeping kids excited about the game. We position our premier team as heroes and mentors, so that kids aspire to follow in our footsteps. With this forward thinking philosophy, we have differentiated ourselves from any other club throughout the state of Montana.

Our full circle philosophy will help cultivate our sport and sustain a healthy future for our kids to be the direct beneficiaries. I hope you encourage our youth to come be a part of something really special going on in our beloved Flathead. Who are we you ask? We are the Rapids!
