Portland Community Football Club
Portland Community Football Club was created in order to provide the “right kind of environment” for all athletes to flourish. Recently it has become clear that in order for young players to experience the kind of environment where they can flourish it requires an unrealistic amount of money, time and resources. As the gap between the “rich” and the “poor” grows larger every day in our country so does the lack of opportunity for young athletes to learn the beautiful game of soccer in a high quality environment. The players who are privileged enough to play at the elite level receive high quality coaching, state of the art equipment and training facilities. This gives those players the advantage of playing in that “right kind of environment”. For those families who can’t afford the thousands of dollars required to participate at the elite level their youth are only left with the option of playing at the recreational level. This is a substandard level with untrained parents as coaches, low quality training, substandard equipment and facilities.
PCFC is commited to providing high quality soccer for little to no cost to youth from all communities.
