More Bang for your Buck!
The #1 reason that players decide to play for the Portage Soccer Club is the great value that it presents at every level of competitive club soccer. While the for-profit clubs will try to convince you that they can offer more than a not-for-profit club like the PSC, we dare you to compare...
When making your decision about which club and team to play for, be sure to consider:
- The coach's qualifications, style, and knowledge of the game
- The skill level as well as the attitude of the team's players
- The team's ranking, level at which it is competing, and its actual results from last season (all available online)
- The quality and location of the club's practice and game facilities. PSC is local (no unecessary travel!) and boasts the best facilities in the area...a dedicated practice facility at the corner of Cox's and Zylman Roads and the well-manicured PSC game fields located at 4422 Bishop Ave. These are often referred to as the "AYSO fields," but they are owned and operated by the PSC.
- The cost and availability of off-season training
- Level of parent satisaction
- Record of players that have gone on to play college level, even olympic soccer!
Now, consider the COST. Scroll down to see the PSC fees. You are not imagining things...we keep our fees low, mostly because our finances are responsibly managed and our coaches, managers, and leaders volunteer their time and expertise. Other area clubs charge more than double (and in some instances more than 4 times more!) than the PSC. Teams that excel can be found at any club at any level. Why would you pay more in order to get the same, and in many cases a better experience? Don't take anyone's word for it...Look at the facts and ask questions! You'll be pleasantly surprised with the option that the Portage Soccer Club offers for your family.
