Eastside Timbers Recreation is an outdoor community based soccer program offered in East Multnomah and Clackamas Counties with leagues based in Gresham, Sandy, Clackamas, Troutdale, and Portland.  For Spring & Fall League, and for soccer camps, we offer playing opportunities for players in Kindergarten all the way through High School.

Eastside offers both a Fall and Spring season; which is based in Gresham, Portland, Sandy (numbers permitting) and Clackamas (numbers permitting).  

We hope you will join the Eastside Timbers family for a phenomenal soccer season of learning, camaraderie, and most importantly - FUN!!! 

Eastside Timbers Recreation is a genuine non-competitive recreational league where children are taught the game of soccer through practices and soccer matches. Regardless of skill level, Eastside Recreation is a great introduction for new players and coaches to the sport of soccer. No scores or standings are kept and rules are in place to keep all teams on level terms. It's all about the joy of the game. 

Our recreational coaches are volunteers and almost all are parents, many of which start with no soccer experience. However, throughout the season, recreational coaches will have coaching clinics provided by Eastside Directors, and will be given session plans for reference if needed. Trainings are all about the kids having fun, playing games, and enjoying the game of soccer!

Practice schedules are decided by the coach as they are volunteers. Trainings are normally held on a weekday between 5pm-7pm. Prek - 2nd grade train once a week. Older age groups may train once or twice a week. Your coach will tell you what day(s) at least a week before.  If the day/time does not work out for you, we may be able to move you to another team but this may be in a location that is required for you to travel further. We also may advise you to stay on the same team and just make the games. Recreational soccer games are typically held on Saturdays each week during the season.

We require our Recreation Coaches and Assistant Coaches to submit a background disclosure and be approved, Safesport training  as well as complete a concussion protocol certification training. If you volunteer to be a Head Coach, your player fees will be reduced!

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