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.
Hillside Soccer will leverage Lincoln Youth Soccer’s Return to Play protocols.

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 HSC. There are several benefits to coaching:
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.

Hillside Soccer Club keeps registration fees at a minimum to encourage wide participation in the sport. We also have scholarships for any family that is experiencing financial hardship. Our registration process offers the opportunity to donate to Hillside’s Scholarship fund. When you donate, you may be enabling an athlete to join your child’s team.
If your child needs a scholarship, contact our scholarships coordinator: Kale Beckwitt.
Practice schedule will be available in late March.
