After a year off due to a pandemic, we are happy to say that 2021 is the 8th year of the Sleeping Giant Soccer Classic, which is the unofficial conclusion of Montana's Fall season of competitive soccer.
The tournament encourages friendly competition and sportsmanship amongst the region’s birth year 2012-2007 (U10-U14/15) boys and girls competitive and recreational teams.
The tournament’s name comes from the Sleeping Giant Wilderness Study Area, located about 30 miles north of Helena and the mountains in the form of a Sleeping Giant visible from many parts of town, including the Siebel Soccer Complex.
