Youth Soccer: (3rd & 4th Grade)

This program is for our 3rd through 4th graders. It is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and
development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high level competition. The
purpose of youth soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, learn
the sport and develop life skills including a life long love of the game. Teams in this age division will begin to travel outside of Oregon City for games to local soccer clubs. Teams will play games at Willamette United Soccer Club, Clackamas United Soccer Club and of course here in Oregon City.

AGE GROUPS

Ages for Soccer -

Please note that at the youth soccer level (recreational) we will do our best to have previous players play with their former coach/team. We will move the player up by one age group in order to accomplish this. Please continue to register your son/daughter by their correct birth year and DO NOT change their year of birth in order to accomplish this.

Soccer-5 Rules of Play


Player Registration

All players must be registered in accordance with the rules of the club. Prior to any player being assigned to a team, the player must be in good standing with the club and all fees paid. Coaches are not allowed to add players to their roster without the written consent of either the registrar or a board
member and coaches will not allow any players to practice with their team unless they are registered as player with Oregon City Soccer Club.

Playing Up

A player may "play up" in the next age division if space is available on a team. No player may "play up"
two age divisions. No exceptions.


Playing Down

A player may not play down an age group. They must at least play in
the age division where their birth date falls, regardless of where they were
last assigned.

Team Assignments

While it is our goal to accommodate as many requests as possible, it is not always possible. The following criteria will be used in placing players on teams. It is the responsibility of the registrar with the board help to form teams prior to the beginning of the season.

The previous year's team will serve as a starting ground (template).

  1. Grade (age group)
  2. Gender
  3. School attending in the fall of the given season
  4. Teammate requests (Car-pooling/sibilings).

Players registered prior to the deadline will be given priority. Players registered after the deadline will be given second priority. Players registered late (for example, new to the district) will be placed on a wait list and every effort will be made to place them on a team.

We encourage players to regsiter EARLY if you have team requests.
