Rising STARS

Rising STARS is tailored for current Eastside recreational players and those outside of our Eastside programs who aspire to advance beyond recreational soccer. This is an ideal program for individuals seeking an opportunity to explore the developmental and competitive programs offered by Eastside, as they may find that the recreational level no longer adequately challenges their skill development. Recognizing that players develop at different rates, Rising STARS aims to address their specific needs.

Formerly known as Recreation ID Night, this initiative provides age-group-based training sessions led by our certified competitive and developmental coaches at the Eastside Timbers Complex, completely free of charge. Those who are identified during these sessions will be offered the chance to train alongside current developmental or competitive team players and coaches.

Our next Rising STARS event will be in the fall once the fall rec season is off and running. Stay tuned.   
At Eastside Timbers Complex  4710 SE 174th Ave Portland, OR 97236
This program is ideal for aspiring players seeking competitive training and potential advancement to the next level. No charge for program.

Treat Referees with Kindness

As we head into our soccer games, please remember that our referees are individuals, many very new to refereeing, with only their eyes and ears to guide them. They aren't elite Major League Soccer referees with assistants or access to VAR technology. Also, keep in mind that the view from the sidelines is very different than what a ref sees; they are in a better position to see what's going on.

Inevitably, there may be moments when the referee makes a mistake. It's part of the beautiful game.

However, it's crucial to remember that these referees are here to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our young athletes. They're doing their best to ensure fair play and fun on the field.

Once we accept the occasional human error and move on, watching your child's game becomes a lot more enjoyable. Let's encourage and support our referees as they play their vital role in our soccer community.

P.S. Coaches, remember that this rule applies to you the most. Lead by example and help create an atmosphere of respect and understanding on the field.

Thank you.

About Eastside Recreation

Eastside Timbers Recreation is a community-based outdoor soccer program that operates in East Multnomah and Clackamas Counties. The program has leagues located in Gresham, Sandy, Clackamas, Troutdale, and Portland, offering playing opportunities for players from Kindergarten to High School for both Spring and Fall League seasons, as well as soccer camps.

Eastside Timbers Recreation is a non-competitive recreational league that aims to teach children the fundamentals of soccer through practices and matches. The focus is on having fun, learning and camaraderie, with no scores or standings kept, and rules in place to ensure that all teams are on a level playing field.

Our coaches are volunteers, many of whom are parents without prior soccer experience. However, they receive coaching clinics provided by Eastside Directors and session plans for reference. The training sessions are tailored to ensure that the children have fun, play games, and enjoy the game of soccer.

Practice schedules are decided by the coaches, with younger age groups (PreK to 2nd grade) training once a week and older age groups training once or twice a week. The coach informs the team of the practice schedule at least a week before the training. If the day or time does not work out for a player, they may be moved to another team, but this could require them to travel further. In some cases, players may be advised to stay on the same team and attend only the games. Recreational soccer games are typically held on Saturdays during the season.

To ensure the safety of our players, we require all Recreation Coaches and Assistant Coaches to submit a background disclosure and complete Safesport training and concussion protocol certification. Head Coaches who volunteer have their player's fees reduced.

We hope you'll join the Eastside Timbers family and have a great time learning soccer skills, making new friends, and enjoying the game of soccer!

*Completion of Rules & Policies, concussion certification, safeguard certificate and background must be completed for discount to be applied.
