Junior Program

PacNW places a high level of importance on the technical development of young players. Skills development at these ages is critical to future success, and consequently our priority in the junior program is specific skills development of each player that attends.

The U8 & U9 Junior Program serves as an experiential bridge between recreation and premier soccer skills and financial requirements, while providing players, parents, and guardians a proper introduction to a professional coaching culture.

What is a placement date?

The placement dates are April 24th and 25th. These two days allow the coaching staff to evaluation the talent and turnout for the upcoming seasons. All of the players will be on a team this season and no one is cut from the junior program.

When do the teams practice?

All junior teams practice on Monday & Wednesday from 5:15pm-6:30pm at Starfire Sports Complex.
