Little Pioneers (Pre-K through 2nd Graders)
: This program is an in house program for our Pre-K through 2nd graders. All games are held right here in Oregon City. This is the beginning level of soccer. The Pre-K and Kinder teams are co-ed and play on smaller fields. The 1st and 2nd grade age levels split into gender specific teams.
Teams will be formed based on grade when possible. In order to form teams some players may be put on a mixed grade team (no more than one grade - players may not play down). If numbers do not warrant separate teams, children could be placed on co-ed teams.

Little Pioneers Rules of Play
All players must be registered in accordance with the rules of the club. Prior to any player being assigned to a team, the player must be in good standing with the club and all fees paid. Coaches are not allowed to add players to their roster without the written consent of either the registrar or a board member and coaches will not allow any players to practice with their team unless they are registered as player with Oregon City Soccer Club.
A player may "play up" in the next age division if space is available on a team. No player may "play up"
two age divisions. No exceptions.
A player may not play down an age group. They must at least play in
the age division where their birth date falls, regardless of where they were
While it is our goal to accommodate as many requests as possible, it is not always possible. The following criteria will be used in placing players on teams. It is the responsibility of the registrar with the board help to form teams prior to the beginning of the season.
The previous year's team will serve as a starting ground (template).
- Grade (age group)
- Gender (when available)
- School attending in the fall of the given season
- Teammate requests (Car-pooling/siblings).
Players registered prior to the deadline will be given priority. Players registered after the deadline will be given second priority. Players registered late (for example, new to the district) will be placed on a wait list and every effort will be made to place them on a team.
We encourage players to register EARLY if you have team requests.
