SPRING 2019 OVERVIEW

  • One weeknight practice each week and a minimum of eight games. One or two games per week, usually Saturdays and Sunday afternoons.
  • Practices will begin the first week of April (weather permitting). The first games are scheduled for Saturday, April 27, with the final games scheduled for Sunday, June 9.
  • Practices and games are normally played on the fields behind Prairie View and Netherwood Knoll elementary schools. A limited number of games are played in Verona as part of a partnership with the Verona Soccer Club.
  • Parent volunteer coaches are needed - no experience necessary, free training provided.
  • Girls can choose to play in an all-girls league or a boys/coed league.
  • Games are 4v4 with no goalkeepers.
  • No intentional headers allowed. As part of the U.S. Soccer Player Safety Initiative, heading the ball is not allowed in leagues with players 10 and under. Rule: "When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense. If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred. If a player does not deliberately head the ball, then play should continue."
  • Oregon SC rule alteration: On goal kicks, the opposing team players must be behind the midfield line and remain there until a second player on the attacking team touches the ball. If this rule is violated, re-take the goal kick.
  • No referees will be used for Under-7/8 games; coaches will be allowed on the field and will serve as de facto referees in addition to instructing players. 
  • Goalkeeping basics sessions for Under-8 players are offered in Spring 2019 at no additional charge. They are scheduled for 6:15-7:15 p.m. on Sundays, April 14, May 12 and June 9 at JPW-23. Register for Goalkeeper Basics Sessions
  • Under-7/8 players are invited to participate in the Pre-Academy program, a weekly 1-hour practice with the Oregon SC Academy trainer and parent assistant coaches, in addition to practices/games with their assigned teams. Learn more
