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. 

Since PYSA has cancelled league play, all grades K-5 will be offered the same program for Spring 2021, as described in the Season Details section.

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.

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 uniforms are only available at The Far Post Soccer Supply. The Far Post knows FHSC’s color scheme, which is navy blue, and keeps the FHSC uniform in stock at their downtown store located at:
825 SW 14th Ave.
Portland, OR 97205
503-295-6875

Note that Far Post will give you 15% off all soccer equipment if you tell them that you are with FHSC.

The cost of the uniform is about $35.00 and includes a jersey, shorts, and socks. Alternatively, Far Post will also sell used club uniforms for a price between $5 and $20 based on condition. They only sell used jerseys and shorts, not socks.
