Director

The leader of Big Sky FC is Colin Baker.

Coach Baker and his network of coaches will bring the best training sessions to Helena and our team will travel to the top Showcase Tournaments, providing exposure to the watchful eyes of college coaches and recruiters.

As a former college player, he joined the Carroll coaching staff in 2017. He began his coaching career at Southwestern as a student assistant and was promoted to full-time assistant in 2014, where the team had its best finish in 16 years. In 2015, he became the assistant coach at the University of Great Falls where he helped the Saints to a birth in the NAIA National tournament and top-25 rankings.   As a professional coach, Colin holds a USSF D license and is nearing his USSF C license. He holds an NSCAA Advanced National Diploma and a NSCAA Goalkeeping 2 diploma. 


Collin’s mindset has the player in the forefront to maximize next level exposure while providing guidance for parents and players alike.  He will help navigate the arduous journey of getting our skilled players to the college level for academics and competitive college soccer.
