Registration for the fall soccer season has proceeded well. The following age groups/genders are now closed as all the teams at these levels are full. If you have a player in one of these groups, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on a waiting list. We are also in contact with our neighboring clubs and will be able to tell you if any of them have openings.
Registration is still open for all other ages. As teams/age groups fill up, we will keep this list updated.
Beginning in Fall, 2017, SWSC microsoccer teams will be gender-specific. Boys and girls will be placed on separate teams although the teams will continue to include both kindergarten and first grade players. All other clubs in the THJSL league have moved to gender-specific teams and have reported good results for the players. Girls will be allowed to be rostered on a boy’s team if requested by the parents.
A number of changes are being implemented for Grade 2-4 teams beginning in the Fall, 2017 season. These are being mandated by the USSF Player Development Initiative.
Registration for the Fall 2017 season is now open. Please click one of the the Register Now buttons to take you to the online registration site. Registration fees are remaining unchanged from the previous 3 years. For more information, please see the Registration page for your player’s grade level.
For players turning 8 in 2017 and entering 1st grade in the fall and players turning 15 in 2017 and entering 8th grade in the fall, please send an email to email@example.com to obtain a discount code before registering so that you will be charged the correct program fee.

The picture day schedule can be found here: http://www.somersetwestsoccer.org/wp/?attachment_id=263
Our microsoccer season kicks off this coming Tuesday, September 6 from 5:30-6:30 at either Somerset West Park or PCC-Rock Creek. We have posted the schedule and field maps online under the Microsoccer page on our website.
Practices/games will take place every Tuesday/Thursday from 5:30-6:30 until October 20, rain or shine.
Please make sure to wear shin-guards (available at any area sporting goods store) and bring a #3 soccer ball with your name on it. Also please be sure to bring water! Please consider volunteering to help with your team – everyone in our program is a volunteer and many hands make for a better experience for all.
The fall schedules are now posted on the THJSL site: Go to http://www.thjsl.org and select Games, then Fall 2016 Schedules. On the game site, teams will be found under each Club’s name. Also, there are field location links listed there.
You will see the Jewelry policy effective for all games. You must click that you have reviewed these policies before the schedules are displayed.
It is also important to check weekly for updates to the schedule – please make sure to do this throughout the season.
The following age groups are now full. If you have a player in one of these groups, please send an email to the SWSC registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be placed on a waiting list.
Please be patient – we know everyone wants to know their game schedule for the fall. We are working with Tualatin Hills Junior Soccer League and the other clubs in our area and the schedules should be available later this week. As soon as they are posted, we will let all our SWSC coaches and players know.
As we head into the start of the fall season, the following age groups are now full and anyone wishing to play at any of these age levels needs to send an email to email@example.com to be placed on a waiting list. Please provide your players name and grade when you email the registrar.
Grade 7 girls (players willing to play up on an 8th grade team can do so)
Grade 8 boys
We are in contact with our neighboring clubs about the status of their teams at those age levels and will let you know via email if they have space.
IMPORTANT: If you have a player turning 7 in 2016 who will be entering 1st grade (playing Microsoccer) this coming fall (usually the kids born between September-December 2009), please contact the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org before registering. Because of changes in the online program, they will be charged the 2nd grade fee. The registrar will provide you a discount code to use when registering that will result in you only being charged the Microsoccer fee.
Similarly, if you have a player turning 14 in 2016 (usually kids born between September-December, 2002) who will be entering 8th grade, you may be charged the High School Rec fee because of changes in the online program. Please contact the registrar at email@example.com before registering to obtain a discount code.
Starting in the Fall 2016 season, our teams will be designated by grade rather than age. While competitive teams are moving to a calendar age placement, our recreational clubs are staying with teams based on player’s grades to allow classmates to continue to play together. The U# designations are being replaced by G# as follows (G stands for “grade”). You will not see the U# or the G# designation when you register your player – we will use the entered grade on your player’s registration when creating the fall teams.
Microsoccer – U6/U7 becomes G1 (includes both kindergarten and first grade)
2nd grade – U8 becomes G2
3rd grade – U9 becomes G3
4th grade – U10 becomes G4
5th grade – U11 becomes G5
6th grade – U12 becomes G6
7th grade – U13 becomes G7
8th grade – U14 becomes G8
HSRec – U15/U16/U17/U18/U19 becomes G12 (includes grades 9-12)
