We are working to adjust to the current public health issues around COVID-19 in Oregon. Our primary objective is to keep everyone - players, volunteers, spectators - healthy and safe. We want to offer a program that gives kids an opportunity to be kids, to play soccer, but to do so in a way that is consistent with regional and national public health directives.

AT THIS TIME, until we have better guidance from state and national health authorities, we are postponing the beginning of practices until further notice. Our hope is that when schools reopen, we can begin our practices, and a modified season will follow. As things continue to develop, we will keep you informed by email. The region calendar (here) will continue to include a proposed set of adjusted dates, for example, as of today, practices could start 4/28 and the first of seven consecutive Saturday game days would start 5/2.

Updated: 3/21 @ 3pm | See Season Updates (here)
