Looking to Join a Team?

Missed Tryouts? Join Mid-Season!

If you are interested in joining mid-season, please contact victoria@pcusc.org to connect with your player's age-group Head Coach. If there are any spots currently available, your player will be invited to attend one of the team's regular training sessions to see if it is a good fit.


You must register for "tryouts," pay the $25 fee and sign all waivers before attending the session. To do so please login/create your account on our registration portal and complete the sign-up process prior to the deadline given to you by a member of our registration team. Our staff must open to registration for each age-group manually, you will not see the option to add the program to your cart until after you reach out via email and the coach approves the tryout. All players must be registered for tryouts before they can step foot on the turf for insurance purposes.


If the coach would like to offer your player a spot, you will be sent the official team invite and will be able to register for the season. Club membership rates will be prorated based on date of first official practice.




Tip #1: Come Prepared

We ask that players do not wear PCU or other club's uniforms to tryouts. Please bring a ball (with players name + phone number, legibly in sharpie), cleats, shinguards and water bottle. Masks are currently optional for all players.


Tip #2: Arrive Early. Players should arrive 15 minutes early to check-in and warm-up.

Directions & Parking: (see map)


All tryouts are head at Buckman Field (300 NE 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97232). Players can enter the field by either the Tennis Center on 12th Ave (recommended), the alley by Voodoo Donuts, or the via 16th Ave by the walkway on the north-side of the Buckman Terrace Apartments. There is street parking available at all three entrances.


Families are welcome to accompany their player to the field, and are permitted to watch tryouts from the track only (not on the turf). Please report directly to your age-groups field (see training schedule) and introduce yourself to a member of the team's coaching staff.


Tip #3: During warm ups, put yourself out there. Introduce yourself to someone, or ask someone to pass or juggle during warm-ups.
Tip #4: Be vocal, be positive. Communicate during the game play, tell a teammate "nice pass, good tackle," etc.
Tip #5: Relax. You will make mistakes, everyone does, it is okay to make mistakes! Showing how you respond to those mistakes is what matters more.
Tip #6: Listen; but if you are unsure of something, don't be afraid to ask a question.

Most importantly, remember to have fun and thank you again for joining us for tryouts!

 

How will my player know if they've made a team?


If our coaches think you are a good fit for one of their teams, you will receive an official club invite for our registration portal within a week of their tryout. If you have not received a response in that time frame, feel free to reach out at victoria@pcusc.org. Thanks!


Players are not committed on a roster until they accept their spot via the offer email and make their first payment. Players are not permitted to attend training the following week until they have officially accepted their spot. Coach's will distribute the age-groups yearly calendar during the first week of training.
