SPRING REGISTRATION OPEN

OVERVIEW & DATES

Developmental Soccer is the Recreational entry level offering from Hillsboro Rush. This level is available for players from Kinder age to 8th Grade.

It is primarily focused on developing the love of the game and targets those players new to the sport or those who just want to play the game without having to commit to a year round sport.

Play in a Hillsboro Rush uniform, experience game environments with sessions twice a week in the Fall, and once a week in the Spring with games at the weekend, all with the emphasis on having fun!

Fall Developmental (Recreational) registration is open from May 20th and closes on August 10th. Registration may remain open for available age groups. The age groups that are still open for available spots will be displayed via the dropdown tool on the official registration form.
We're currently offering our early-bird discount to families who complete their registration before June 30th. 
Rostering will begin after the early-bird discount date has ended for early team formation.
League games begin September 10th for our 1st grade - 8th grade level teams, kinder teams will start on September 8th. This is a 9-week program with 8 league games for each team participant within the program, games are played consecutively on the Saturdays, and kinder games are played on Thursday evenings.
Rostering will begin once registration has closed. Most requests are accommodated, some requests may be denied due to specific reasoning.

Formation of teams is dependent on Volunteer Coaches, and players are placed on a first come first serve basis. When a team is full, players will be placed on a wait list until a space becomes available or another volunteer coach is found.

DEVELOPMENTAL F.A.Q'S

Q: How do I receive updates about my registration, my player being rostered to a team and other recreational news from Hillsboro Rush?

A: Make sure you have registered through our official website and have downloaded the TeamSnap application from your smartphone’s app store (the phone application is free)! This is where different forms of communication are available, through the club, directors, and coaches. Ensure you’re logging with the email address you used to register your player.

Q: Is Hillsboro Rush recreational programming a good fit for my player?

A: The intention and purpose of our recreational program is to offer a fun, relaxed, learning experience for players of any skill levels. Players may step into the programming with no experience, little to some experience, or have played for years; whatever the case may be, this program is open to all players between the grade levels of kinder through to 8th grade.

Q: When does the season officially begin? Practices? Games?

A: The Spring Recreational soccer season unofficially begins the week after Spring Break (Hillsboro School District - March 28th). This means teams may begin to practice depending on the weather and field conditions. League games for the 7 week season begin officially on April 9th.

Q: What is the practice schedule? How will I know before I register?

A:

Players will be rostered to teams throughout the weeks leading up to pre-season practices. Once you’ve been rostered to a team, you’ll see the “Schedule” tab for your player’s schedule. We allow volunteer coaches within our programming to choose their own practice schedule (day of the week, time of the day, location of the practice). Once your volunteer coach has selected a day of the week, time slot, and location for practices, they will manually upload their practices to the Teamsnap app. Practice schedule will be posted no later than late March/Early April. 

 

Our game schedule will be posted in late March once teams have been confirmed for our Tualatin Valley Youth Soccer League.

Q: Where are the practices and games? How long is the season?

A:

A majority of our Tualatin Valley Youth Soccer League are hosted locally in Hillsboro at school district fields and local Hillsboro Parks & Recs park fields. Older teams may have some travels to neighboring areas of Hillsboro (North Plains, Banks, Tillamook, etc). Practices are hosted locally at school district and local Parks & Rec park fields. 

Q: What items should I purchase for my player before the season begins? (Micro player = Kinder, 1st, 2nd Grade)

A: Micro/Kinder/1st/2nd Grade

You should purchase appropriate-sized firm ground soccer cleats, shinguards, and athletic sports attire ( black athletic shorts, sports T-shirts, etc). Hillsboro Soccer Club provides a game jersey specific to Saturday league games, and black soccer socks.

Q:When will my player(s) be rostered to a team and when will I begin receiving emails from my player’s coach?

A: Make sure to download the Teamsnap Application (it’s free) and log in to your personal account using the details you submitted while registering your player. Teamsnap will send you a personal email notifying you that your player has been added to a recreational team’s roster. Player rostering will begin once the early bird fee has expired ( January 15th). Registrants who register during this time will be placed on a team-first, and then weekly roster assignments will be made in the weeks leading up to mid-March.

If you view our website, there are multiple links that guide you through signing up to volunteer as a coach in the program, or in other areas that include helping sort out recreational gear & equipment, helping line game and practice fields for teams, etc.

Q: What is the format of the recreational Tualatin Valley Youth Soccer League?

A: We format our TVYSL rules and guidelines to better fit specific grade levels and their needs as the individual player. It’s proven by US Youth Soccer that different formats for different age groups are beneficial for the players' development. Please see the club’s webpage for more information on our rulesets and guidelines for formats specific to your player’s grade level.

Our recreational program consists of serving kinder - 8th grade age players. Boys and girls teams are formed separately along with separate age groups (kinder separately all the way until 6th grade, middle school-aged teams are formed together).

Rush Academy - Taking the Next Step

In an effort to constantly look to improve our programs and the subsequent learning environment for our players, we realized that there is a gap between programs within our own Player Pathway.

To ensure that we are not doing a disservice to our players, we have created a brand new program called the Hillsboro Rush Academy. These programs will be headed by our Recreational Co-ordinator Mason Aguirre, and our Assistant Director of Coaching Michael Wall. Along with quality and experienced coaches from our competitive program, we are looking to create a bridge for players to continue their growth.

Train on turf, with licensed coaches and a player centered environment, to allow our players to reach their true potential.

Academy Players are 5-14 years old
