We've got some nice facilities... but nothing like 60 acres, or any other venue where you can have two dozen matches being played at once. That only matters for hosting large tournaments, but that means OYSA regionals will never come here, and it is arguably a limiting factor on tourneys like Mt. Hood or Clash that often get decent regional competition, but that's it.

Local coaches love Mt. Hood, because that 53.5 cents per mile adds up, and if you drive a beater, cha-ching!

WST and THUSC, of course, have to share "their" fields with each other, with AUSC, the various rec programs in the district, and other sports such as lacrosse that have an equal claim to field time.

Neither, of course, is "cruddy". THUSC (particularly CU) is one of the strongest girls' programs in the state (and lets be honest--Crossfire provides the name, THUSC provides the talent). Westside remains one of the strongest boys' programs overall.

Powerlines Park may be cruddy, I'll agree with that.

FC is on shaky grounds with Hillsboro S District, lease is up.

PCU has a worn out mat at Benson HS.

United/NEU rents time from whoever is willing

WST & THUSC have a kindgom of turf & grass fields all the other clubs mentioned combined don't have this spoils of riches.

Nobody is doing squat.

Crossfire is working on a big complex;
Eastside just completed their facility;
FC partnered on Liberty;
PCU partnered on Buckman/Salvation Army;
United partnered on OES/Westside Christian/Madison/Concordia;
Westside and THUSC have worked fields through Tualatin District.

What Washington Timbers has done is great, took a long time. Helped they get land essentially for free and always going to be easier to build a clubhouse/exclusivity though in the suburbs than closer to central Portland (few big parcels of land).

Unregistered Free Gatorade is a nice perk.

Unregistered Nobody cares about your little league.

Nothing has changed.

Same coaches

Same opponents

Same players

Same results


But at least you get Gatorade at the game...

DA is a joke.

Why is it that other clubs donít even bother trying? Are they more concerned about lining their individual pockets?
