About FHSC

Recreational Soccer Club for the Forest Heights Neighborhood

Forest Height Soccer Club (FHSC) fields soccer teams from 1st to 5th grade in the Portland Youth Soccer Association (PYSA) League. PYSA’s fall league runs from late August to end of October and their spring league runs from early April to mid-May.

Games are on Saturdays and teams practice one to two times during the fall. FHSC does not have field times for practicing in the spring. 

Our home turf field is at Forest Park Elementary School (9935 NW Durrett St, Portland, OR 97229). All FHSC team practices are at the Forest Park Elementary School turf field unless specified elsewhere. 

FHSC also supports the following two Sunday programs:

  • Kindergarten / Pre-K Soccer
  • Sunday Academy Program

This FAQ tells you what you need to know about the Forest Heights Soccer Club (FHSC) Kindergarten Soccer Program, which we also open to Pre-K kids in the spring. 

FHSC offers a Kindergarten program in the fall and spring which consists of a weekly practice.

  • In the spring season, FHSC opens up the registration to Pre-K kids planning to start Kindergarten in the fall.
  • Fall Season consists of 8 Sunday practices
  • Spring Season consists of 6 Sunday practices
  • The exact practice times will be confirmed after registration closes for the 1st – 5th graders.
  • All practices are at the Forest Park Turf Field.

Here is a checklist of things your child will need for the Sunday practice:

  • Size 3 Soccer Ball… the kids will use a size 3 soccer ball for Kindergarten and 1st Grade
  • Shin Guards… the kids will not be allowed to practice unless they are wearing shin guards. Also note that the shin guards should be worn INSIDE of their socks.
  • Soccer Shoes… turf shoes are OK when it is dry, but soccer cleats will be better for the season
  • Soccer Socks
  • Water Bottle
  • Bathroom… always have your kids go potty before coming to practice.  The field has a porta-potty, but potty breaks during practice can be disruptive.   
  • Uniforms are not required.
    • If you do not buy a uniform, send your child to practice with a comfortable shirt and shorts; color does not matter.
    • If you do buy a uniform, get a size that will likely fit next year.  For more information on FHSC uniforms, see the FHSC Uniforms Policy.  

The Far Post will give you 15% off all soccer equipment if you tell them that you are with FHSC. Dick’s Sporting Goods and Target should also have some good prices for kids soccer equipment.

Please plan to have a guardian stay with your child throughout the practices.  If this is not possible, please ask another parent to be responsible for your child while you are away.  We need a guardian to be at the practices in the event your child has an injury, needs to use the bathroom or just needs consoling. 

Note we are always looking for additional volunteer coaches. This is an easy one-hour commitment that will be lots of fun with the kids. No soccer experience required. Go to the FHSC Registration page to signup as a volunteer coach.

Sunday Academy

FHSC Sunday Academy Training

FHSC is hosting a Sunday Academy Training package valued at $50 but offered to our membership for only $25. These Sunday Academy sessions will emphasize technical foot skills that are important to learn at the younger ages. They also provide a great opportunity to work with professional coaching in a fun environment with their neighborhood friends.

  • Camps led by a nationally certified youth soccer coach.
  • All sessions will be at the Forest Park Turf Field on Sunday afternoons
  • Exact training times on Sunday and training groups will be confirmed after registration closes.
  • Academy Training programs will mix kids of different age groups and genders to ensure we have good numbers for each training group

The FHSC Sunday Academy starts on April 7th.

Sign up for Sunday Academy Training through your Spring Soccer registration.
