Our Junior Academy is for players age U11 – U14 looking for a competitive soccer experience.  Training is 2-3 times a week and lead by a professionally licensed coach with the main emphasis being on individual technical training.  Teams are formed by ability and compete in local and regional events.

There is a $1,500 yearly membership fee for this program, which covers the cost of your Fall & Spring League registration fee, a Cup tournament (State Cup, President’s Cup or Founder’s Cup) and your training costs.  If a team chooses to enter tournaments throughout the year the cost for those events will be split up between the team.  These events are generally in the $55 per player range for a registration fee, plus any travel expenses.

Team Formation
Tryouts will be held the beginning of May (Tentative Dates: May 6th & 7th) for the East & West Locations. Teams will be formed based on location, East or West. Initial team rosters will be set for the summer and then players will be evaluated over the course of the summer for fall team placement. This does not mean rosters will be set for the entire year. Depending on the developmental needs of a player he/she could be moved.

Once a player has received his/her team placement they must accept their roster spot and make an initial $300 payment. That $300 secures their spot on the team and acceptance confirms their commitment to the team for the year and is their agreement to paying their remaining annual membership fee by the end of December.  Accounts still holding a balance in December are subject to late fees.  United PDX offers payment plans, an automatic bill pay option, and financial assistance.

After rosters are formed, Team Connect will be pushed live with your team roster, coaching staff, and team manager.

Team Manager
Parent Volunteer to assist with team & club communications, assistance with player cards & rosters, assistance with collecting player documentation.

All Tournaments including State Cup, President’s Cup, and Summer Events must be approved by the Junior Academy Director. This is to ensure all events outside of training & league play are developmentally appropriate for the players.

If a team is approved to play in a tournament there will be tournament fees split between the team (tournament registration, travel, food, etc.).
