Soccer Programs

Recreational Soccer: For boys and girls ages 5 to 18.

A great way to experience the joy of the game!

Players ages 5 to about 12 play on teams in a small-sided format. Teams will play with 3 players on a side without a goal keeper (U-6) to 9 on each side with a goal keeper (U-12). U-6 to U-8 teams play either just in their own club or in a group of several nearby clubs. U-9 and older teams play with other teams their age from across the association or district.

Association Level: These recreational teams go from U-12 through U-19. Some recreational teams are quite competitive while others are very relaxed. Players are placed on teams by the club registrars based on player ages, where they live, and parent requests. Coaches are not allowed to select their players.

Advanced Competition (AC): For boys and girls ages 7 to 18.

AC teams are formed by a tryout or selection process, in contrast to recreational teams where all players will be given a spot. AC teams are also called "Select" or "Premier" depending on whether they play in a district 5 select league or a Washington or Oregon State youth League.
