Overview

Oregon Soccer Academy invites all interested and talented U8-14 players to consider becoming a member of an OSA team. Although the Fall season of soccer is the highlight of the year with focused practices, local summer tournaments, competitive league games, and post-season tournments we also offer Winter Indoor Soccer and Spring Outdoor Soccer.

Your child may tryout for membership into Oregon Soccer Academy at the annual Fall Season Tryouts held in May. The Fall Season focuses on skill and technique development, team building, and having players improve their "big game" concepts.

Individuals who are invited to join OSA will receive the best coaching philosophy the Northwest offers. Head coach, Bernie Fagan, selects his coaching staff personally. Each team coach is chosen because of an ability to be a good role model for today's youth, as well as for a proven history of coaching ability.

Should Your Child Join an OSA Fall Season Team …

The club's goal is to develop Premier and upper Division teams. Rosters will be formed to achieve that goal. Once teams are formed, practices are held twice a week and will focus on specific individual techniques and team tactical awareness. It is important that the fundamentals of soccer be well established in the younger years of classic soccer.

Commitment is expected from the players and their families to arrive promptly to all practices, games and tournaments. The coaching staff must be notified in advance if a player is unable to attend.

The "Code of Conduct" is a document outlining the responsibilities of the player, parent, coach and club. Oregon Soccer Academy knows success can be achieved when all interested parties are aware of the expectations early. Therefore, the Code of Conduct is provided to each family and signatures of commitment are required from the player and parent prior to acceptance into OSA.

Parent Meeting attendance is required of one or both parents. An enrollment package will be sent to families prior to this meeting. The package includes a list of the necessary documentation to be reviewed and returned to the registrar at the meeting.

Community involvement through outreach opportunities is also encouraged. Club members provide support for our friends at Special Olympics by assisting the athletes during their annual tournament. This is a wonderful time for OSA players to interact in their community. Other opportunities, such as participation in Race for the Cure, are also promoted

The Annual Schedule will give you the overview of the fall season expectations, winter season, and spring outdoor season. Please note that the schedule offers two designated player breaks which will assist you in making your summer vacation schedule and plans. Calender will be confirmed in May.
