Foothills Soccer Recreational Soccer Program

Foothills Recreational Soccer program is available to all players 4 to 14 years of age.

Our U7-U14 program runs through Portland Youth Soccer Association (PYSA) and has separate boys & girls teams. The age group your child will play in is determined by their grade in school. It is generally offered to those children in 1st – 8th grade.

Little ones

We also have a U6/Kinder program for players who are looking for their first opportunity to get out on the field.

Coach your kids!

Volunteer coaches are the lifeblood of our Recreational Soccer program. Please consider helping coach your player’s team.

Scholarships are available for those in need. Please check out our scholarships page.
