About FHSC

Recreational Soccer Club for Kindergarten through 5th Graders in 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. FHSC also supports a Kindergarten / Pre-K Soccer program on Sunday afternoons.

The fall season runs from late August to end of October and the spring league runs from early April to mid-May.

For 1st-5th Graders, all games are on Saturdays. In the fall, teams practice one to two times per week. FHSC does not have field times for team practices in the spring. 

Our home turf field is adjacent to 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. 

COVID Protocols

Every family has their own boundaries for what they consider to be COVID safe.  When considering rec soccer for your child, you can leverage OHA standards that designate outdoor soccer as a minimal-contact sport, with specific guidelines on how to play safely.

Lincoln Youth Soccer facilitated developmental and competitive soccer for hundreds of children within OHA guidelines last fall. There were no COVID transmissions between teammates.  Other Oregon Youth Soccer Association teams and leagues from across the country have had similar outcomes.

Forest Heights Soccer Club will leverage Lincoln Youth Soccer’s Return to Play protocols.

Uniforms

FHSC requires families to purchase a team uniform for the U7 – U11 age groups.  FHSC’s color scheme is navy blue.  Tursi knows the scheme and you can ask for it in the store.

Uniforms are NOT required for the Kindergarten Program. For Kindergarten families who do not purchase a uniform, please send your child to practice with a comfortable shirt and shorts; color does not matter.

FHSC families now have three ways to buy FHSC kits and other equipment from Tursi Soccer:

Also, FHSC is switching to Nike kits due to better availability. Please note that families DO NOT need to buy new kits! Please use your existing kits as long as there is life in them.

The cost of the uniform is $42.00 and includes a jersey, shorts, and socks.  Please contact us for any questions on uniform purchasing.

Coaching and Parental Volunteers

Our community’s soccer program is wholly dependent on the volunteers that dedicate their time to coach our children.  Luckily, many generous parents in NW Portland recognize the value of community soccer, and happily take on the responsibility of developing our young athletes.

If you are a parent that knows how to play soccer and values youth sport, please consider volunteering as a Head Coach for FHSC.  There are several benefits to coaching:

  • Personal growth, developing your soccer knowledge and mentoring skills
  • Involvement in your local community and your child’s peer group
  • Satisfaction in seeing the rapid development of your team’s skills
  • Stronger motivation from your own child in the sport, due to your involvement
  • Role modeling community involvement and generosity for your players

If you are NOT a parent that has soccer skills, you can still help your child’s team in crucial ways!  Managing energetic young players is impossible without assistant coaches.  If your players team has more than 6 children for each coach, then your child is probably having a sub-optimal experience.  Volunteer as an assistant coach to run activities in smaller groups, manage problems for players, and help kids keep their attention on the activities and games.

Even if coaches may appear to have it under control in your child’s age group, there is always room for more parents to help out. Parents can offer to set up nets or cones for practice and games, ref the sideline, or help mange subs on one of the two 3V3 or 4V4 games. It is also helpful to have a team parent or manager who can do all of the team communications and help with end of the season celebrations. Please contact the head coach in your age group if you are willing to help out your team in any of these ways.
