Oregon SC competitive teams play in WYSA state leagues and MAYSA leagues
The primary focus of the Oregon SC Competitive program is individual player skill development at higher levels of competition with, and against, competitive players.
Development of individual skills is a primary goal balanced by some instruction of team tactical play. The overall goal is to promote the enjoyment of playing soccer so kids will continue to play well into adulthood. Players can participate in other sports in addition to competitive soccer.
For the Fall 2020 season, Oregon SC again has contracted with Challenger Sports as the primary source for coaches for our competitive teams. Other professional coaches also will be hired to coach one or more teams.
Oregon SC believes a professional coach offers the best opportunity to maximize players' development. We generally look for coaches with extensive coaching education and licensing, and prior experience and success coaching youth players.
During the Fall 2020 season, Oregon SC will have six teams play in Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association state leagues: 2009 Boys Orange, 2008 Boys Orange, 2006/2007 Boys Orange, 2009 Girls Orange, 2008 Girls Orange and 19U Girls Orange. The remaining competitive teams will play in Madison Area Youth Soccer Association leagues.
In Fall 2020, all 11U through 19U competitive teams will practice twice per week for 90 minutes. (Sessions are reduced to 75 minutes in late September and to 60 minutes in October, due to the reduction in daylight.)
The usual Friday "street soccer" sessions currently cannot be held due to Dane County public health guidelines; if those guidelines change, we will offer those 60-minute sessions.
We also offer weekly goalkeeper training sessions to Competitive players, led by Director of Goalkeeping Mike McAllister.
