Buckman Field Remodel:
Pardon our mess! To better serve you, Buckman Field will be closed beginning June 8, as we install new turf.
Coach Feature: Meet Holly
My Advice: Always keep your passion for the game and be in an environment that fosters that as well as challenges you to reach for new heights. Results will always be secondary to the way you play the game.
My college coach used to say, “Competition reveals character,” which I found to be very true. In kids, healthy competition helps them build character.
Interests outside of soccer: I teach in the nursing program at OHSU and love watching soccer with my family
Summer Classic Tournament:
Our 19th annual PCU Summer Classic Tournament will be postponed until August 22-23, 2020. Due to the change in date, the tournament will only be open to players U9 - U15 for 2020. We plan to use Delta Park and the newly installed turf at Buckman Fields for the tournament.
Tursi Soccer Store locations will remain temporarily closed as of April 20, 2020 until further notice. They will continue to serve your uniform needs online at www.tursissoccer.com.
