Late Registration for Spring '24 Youth Development Program (2017-2014 Players)



Tryouts for the Spring 2024 YDP season were held 1/29 & 1/31. If you'd like to join mid-season, please reach out to victoria@pcusc.org with your player's name and birth date.


If a spot is available, players will be invited to attend the team's regular training session as a tryout to see if it's a good fit. Our coaches will get to know your player's focus, listening skills and ability to participate as part of a team. In general, players regardless of technical skills will be offered a spot on a team. This is a great opportunity to get your child active and engaged with other player's their age!


Cost: $35 seasonal tryout fee + spring fees prorated based on start date


Looking to join next season? Tryouts will be held in May for our YDP Summer Fall Program. Registration will open on 3/15.


Please note: Our teams are divided by birth-year, not grade. Please see below for more information about our playing-up policy.

Day-of Tryout Instructions


Please see below for what to bring, how to check-in and other helpful tips to keep in mind during tryouts.


Tip #1: View Parking & Directions

All tryouts are held at Buckman Field (300 NE 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97232). Families are welcome to accompany their player to the field, and are permitted to watch tryouts from the track only (not on the turf). Where Should I Park?


Due to construction, there is only street parking currently available at this facility. Please give yourself enough time to find a spot, walk to the field and check-in.


  • Option 1 | Park along 12th Ave (street parking) near the Portland Tennis Center and Franz Bakery. Please DO NOT park in the Tennis Center parking lot. Walk towards the front doors of the Tennis Center and take a left up the stairs, towards the "bubble." Follow the walkway to the field.

  • Option 2 | Park by Voodoo Donuts on NE Davis (street parking) and enter via the alley way on the west-side of the building.

  • Option 3 | Park along 16th Ave (street parking) and enter the field using the walkway on the north-side of the Buckman Terrace Apartments.



Tip #2: 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.

Tip #3: Arrive 15-20 Minutes Early to Check-In

For 1/29 & 1/31 tryouts only: We’re switching up our check-in process this year. When you arrive, please swing by the club-house with your player to grab their name tag from the classroom (blue building on the NW corner of the field). Our staff will help direct them to the correct field.

Tip #4: During Warm-Ups, Put Yourself Out There

Remind your player to introduce themselves to someone, or ask someone to pass or juggle during warm-ups.

Tip #5: Be Vocal, Be Positive

Communicate during the game play, tell a teammate "nice pass, good tackle," etc.

Tip #6: Relax, it's Okay to Make Mistakes!

Your player will make mistakes, everyone does, it's okay to make mistakes! Showing how you respond to those mistakes is what matters more.

Tip #7: Listen, But Don't be Afraid to Ask Questions.


Tip #8: Most Importantly, Remember to Have Fun!

Thank you again for joining us for tryouts!


 

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


Players will receive the official club invitation from SportsConnect (the same platform you used to register for tryouts) within 24 hours of their second tryout date, letting them know if they've made a team. Families have 48 hours to accept their spot on their SportsConnect account and make their first payment (from the time the invitation is sent). See payment options below.


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 be in contact with accepted players via email within a few days of their tryout with more information, including an invite to the age-group's calendar (TeamSnap). Players will train with their age-group (based on their birth-year) on Mondays & Wednesdays from 6-7pm at Buckman Field from February 5 to May 1. Coaches will form teams based on skill level and YDP players will participate in OYSA’s 4v4 or 7v7 (based on age-group) Development League at Delta Park on Sundays in February, March and April. There's no training on 2/19 (Presidents Day) or 3/25 & 3/27 (PPS Spring Break). There are no games on 3/24 & 3/31.
