PSC offers an outstanding soccer experience within the Academy, Select, Elite, Premier and MRL programs.
The philosophy of the Club is to emphasize player development. We believe that consistent achievement at the highest level possible is a goal that is reached through development and not by coaching to simply win games in the short term. By focusing on development the Club also strives to keep players enjoying the game, and we seek to avoid the burnout that sometimes occurs when travel time becomes excessive, or when pressure to perform may exceed age-appropriate levels. PSC offers a very good experience that many outstanding high school players have benefited from.
Most teams practice twice a week, and typically play an average of eight (8) league games each season on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. The Fall Season typically runs from mid-August to the end of October, and the Spring Season usually starts in mid-April and lasts until mid-June. Half of the games are played away (typically within an hour drive) while home games are played at the Portage Soccer Complex.
Teams usually play two or three tournaments per year, which may include Memorial Day & Labor Day weekends. All teams are also required to play in our Portage Soccer Classic in June.
PSC has a proven track record of producing many fine young adults and some excellent soccer players too. Some of the more famous alumni of PSC include Lindsay Tarpley, Jacob Peterson, B.J. Snow, and Eric Alexander. Each of these accomplished soccer stars played for the Portage Soccer Club. The community of Portage is fortunate to have so many parents who appreciate the importance of player development without forgetting about the importance of having fun along the way too!
