Due to COVID-19, OYSA has made the decision to cancel all games in all leagues through the month of April. Given this information and in following the advice of local and state health authorities, effective immediately all TFA club activities (practices, camps, etc) through April 28 will be cancelled for the health and safety of our players and families.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and follow the advice of the Oregon Health Authority and the lead of OYSA to make a decision in late March about how we will proceed through the month of April with health and safety of all in our community being our first priority.
PLEASE NOTE: The start of our Spring Recreational League will be postponed until a later date as we address the health and safety of our players and families in relation to COVID-19. We will make a determination on March 29 regarding a tentative new start date for the spring league.
TFA Willamette is a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth soccer organization. Our membership includes youth from Albany, Oregon and surrounding communities in Linn, Benton, Marion, and Lane counties. Our members come from all socio-economic backgrounds, and we embrace high levels of diversity within our club community.
TFA Willamette is the only full service youth soccer club in Albany, Oregon and the greater Willamette Valley that utilizes an integrated club model which requires the use of standardized curriculums, coaching methodologies, and a style of play, "total futbol", that emphasizes purposeful possession. This creates a clear path and progression for all of our players from 5 years old through to our high school-aged and senior-level teams.
These curriculums and methodologies also happen to be time-tested and proven at La Masia, Barcelona FC's world renowned youth soccer academy in Spain, and set the standard for both child development and player development.
TFA Willamette partners with other community groups, nonprofits, and governmental organizations to help serve the youth in our community, whether they ever pull on a TFA Willamette jersey or not. TFA Willamette believes in building strong communities, and we live by the mantra "More than a soccer club."
We are always looking for opportunities to better the lives of the youth and families in our communities. If your organization has a need where TFA Willamette can help, please reach out to us.
