Do you love soccer? Do you love the Timbers and Thorns? Do you want to play but you've either never played or haven’t played in a long time? Well, we at Timbers Army Football Club (TAFC) are developing a league for you! TAFC is in the beginning stages of creating a Recreational 7v7 Adult COED soccer league. Playing the game is the best way to learn about it. We are gauging interest at this point. This league would be starting the Fall season 2018. The league would be open to all skill and experience levels with an emphasis on player development of individuals who have never played or haven’t played in a long time
Our hope is to start with a field of 4-8 teams. We have talked with the Eastside Timbers Academy to hold our games on early Sunday evenings at their brand new state of the art facility at SE 174th just south of Powell. This facility has 3 full size soccer fields. The field surface is composed of brand new field turf. Eventually this facility will have a clubhouse with food, drink and futsal courts
Referee development will also be one of our objectives. We will financially support individuals who want to take the beginning referee class. These games will be a great way for these new referees to practice their craft in a safe non-judgmental environment.
In case you haven’t heard, TAFC is an official Oregon Adult Soccer Association (OASA) league with our own referee schedulers. Subsequently, all players will need to obtain an OASA player card to play in this league.
Advance players are also welcome as long as they buy into helping their less advanced teammates develop. If you’re looking to build a super team that dominates every game, you are NOT welcome to join this league. Sportsmanship, teamwork, comradery and community are the pillars of this league.

We will are working hard to make this league affordable for everyone.
