Milwaukie Soccer Club is primarily a recreational soccer club, offering teams from Kindergarten through eighth grade, as teams are available.
Practices begin in early to mid-August, as soon as coaches are identified for teams. Practices are weekday evenings, generally 1 hour (K-2nd) or 1.5 hour (3rd and greater), two times a week. (Note that practice schedules may change later in the season due to weather and availability of daylight - especially for the younger kids.) Practice days, times, and locations will be chosen by coaches at the end of July. If you have special preferences, please indicate this at registration and we will accommodate, if possible. All practices are held locally, at a Milwaukie elementary school (or former school) field.
Each team will play eight games in the months of September and October. All games are held on Saturdays. Kindergarten through 2nd grade teams are considered house teams (play only other Milwaukie teams and are co-ed) and will play games at Ardenwald or Linwood on Saturday mornings. (Note that we are returning to house teams for Fall 2019 and no longer travel for younger grades.) Third grade and above are travel teams and play within the Portland Youth Soccer League (PYSA). All games are Saturdays and we attempt to keep away game travel to SE Portland, especially at the 3rd-5th grade levels.
Also for fall, plan to participate in our Dribble-A-Ton!. It is held the first Friday evening of the school year at Linwood Elementary School. It is a fun event where your player gets their shirt/jersey, participates in our big community event, and competes for prizes!
