TFA U6-U8 Rec League offers opportunities in Sweet Home, Oregon and Brownsville, Oregon

Expert coaching and proven methods to start your soccer journey the right way.

Developing sound fundamentals and a passion for the game.

TFA Willamette's U6-U8 Recreational League takes a new approach to introducing youth in Linn County, OR and the greater Willamette Valley to the game of soccer.

By employing our staff of expert, licensed coaches* to lead all practices and games we provide affordable access to elite coaching to start your child's soccer experience the right way. Our coaches use proven methods in child development such as guided discovery to help players learn and retain skills in a fun and engaging environment.

Using an Academy Training Model for all practices and games allows us to focus on teaching fundamental skills and our club's core values in an environment where this is the focus rather than wins and losses. Additionally, players can progress at their own pace, and our coaches are able to give each child the attention he or she needs in an environment that provides opportunities for both success (confidence building) and failure (learning opportunities). The Academy Training Model is also the preferred method for player development at this age group according to the United States Soccer Federation's 2016 Player Development Initiatives. 

What is an Academy Training Model?

An Academy Training Model pools all players in a specific age group together for practices and games rather than splitting the players into arbitrary teams.

Under the direction of a lead coach, the players are grouped by ability level in low player-to-coach ratios (8:1) for practices and games so that all players can progress at their own speed while experiencing both success and failure, which are key components to keeping a child learning, engaged, and having FUN! These practice and game groups are flexible meaning that a player who is beginning to excel within his/her initial group has the ability to move to a more challenging group to continue the developmental trajectory.
