Junior Program, 2019-2020 season

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, placement has been postponed until further notice

The Junior Program is for birth year 2012 (U8) & 2011 (U9) boys and girls.

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 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 if I missed placement dates in April? Can I still sign-up?

If you missed placement dates in April you are encouraged to register your child for the program of your choice and your son/daughter will be placed appropriately when they begin practices.

When do the teams practice?

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