The aim of Soccer Chance Academy (SCA) Portland is to ensure that we are a club at the forefront of youth development. In an effort to create the best soccer club in Portland, Oregon, we are dedicated to not only developing players on the field, but also to encouraging players to make a difference off the field.
Soccer Chance Academy Portland (SCA PDX) is committed to innovation, individuality, and creativity. Coaches at SCA celebrate the intent of the player, irrespective of execution. Soccer training is characterized by challenge, variety, and opportunities for players to think independently, without the fear of failure. To the contrary, players are encouraged to make mistakes in order to accelerate learning.
SCA engages in games and friendlies with other Portland soccer clubs, with the goal of pushing players out of their comfort zones; they have opportunities to play on different sized fields, up in age, down in age, and with varying numbers. With the departure of the u12 Portland US Development Academy (USDA), many players will flourish in this less rigid soccer environment.
The founders and coaches of SCA believe the young players and families in Oregon Youth Soccer are ready for a culture shift that genuinely tailors to the individual. Oregon Youth Soccer has many wonderful traditions and Portland itself has been labeled soccer city USA. The founders of SCA, a unique Portland Elite Soccer Academy, has created a more measured approach to development and is invested in becoming a Portland Premier Soccer Club.
