2024 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.

  • We always need coaches! Volunteers are vital to the success of our Rec soccer program! When you register your player please consider registering as a volunteer coach at the same time. Foothills is especially interested in encouraging more women coaches to join our program.
