Madison Area Youth Soccer Association

Community

While Oregon Soccer Club focuses on the development, education and enjoyment of our players and teams, we also pride ourselves on being a positive member of the Oregon-area community.

Economic Impact: Oregon SC contributes to the local economy in several ways. Each of our teams, from Under-9 and older, plays at least four home games in the fall and four more in the spring, bringing people from other local and state communities into Oregon. Our annual Fall Fury tournament each September draws more than 100 teams and more than 1,000 visitors, many of whom frequent Oregon businesses throughout the weekend. Additionally, the club tries to patronize local companies whenever possible for our purchases, keeping money in our community.

Oregon High School: We enjoy a strong relationship with the highly successful OHS boys and girls programs.

  • In 2014, Oregon SC made a $25,000 donation to the project to create a soccer-specific stadium at Ward Huntoon Memorial Field, helping to fund the lighting system. The stadium opened for play in Fall 2016.
  • Since 2014, OSC has annually given two $500 scholarships to OHS graduating seniors (one boy, one girl). The recipients need to have played at least one season in OSC and be involved in the high school soccer programs, though not necessarily as a player.
  • Panthers varsity coaches Kevin May and Julie Grutzner hold non-voting positions on the OSC Board, and their programs occasionally run clinics for players.
  • OSC teams and players frequently serve as ball kids for OHS varsity games.

Equipment Trade-In Day: OSC encourages our members to donate used soccer cleats, balls and other gear that still can be used. We then invite anyone from the club to pick out equipment that fits their child or children at no cost. Any gear not selected is donated to Madison's Millennium Soccer Club.

Adult Pick-Up Soccer: OSC helps promote Oregon Soccer Coed Adult Recreation (OSCAR), a group that encourages adults in the area to play soccer. No experience is necessary, just bring good shoes, a light-colored shirt, a dark-colored shirt and be ready to have fun. Teams are adjusted as needed and standard soccer rules are followed, but the primary objectives are exercise and camaraderie. If you have questions, contact Christine Johnston at (608) 335-7929 or visit the OSCAR Facebook page.
