Welcome to our Fall 2023 soccer season. Below is much of the information that you need, so please read carefully. If you still have questions, contact our office at westsidesoccerinfo@gmail.
Teams have been formed and all teams are now available to be viewed on the Demosphere app. There is now a Demosphere 2.0 app. Demosphere 1.0 is still available for download but apps 1.0 and 2.0 do NOT share content. All members of a team MUST have the same version of the app in order for team communications to get to everyone. I strongly encourage everyone to load Demosphere 2.0 on their phone. Again, you must have the app to see any messages that are posted by your coach or other parents on the team.
Coaches should already be in contact with their teams. There are a few teams that still do not have a coach and we are working to identify coaches as quickly as possible. Those teams are working with the board to start practice.
Practices are under way. Due to the shortened summer vacation period this year some teams are just starting practice here in the latter part of August.
Games start on Saturday September 9. The game schedule will be posted on the THJSL website (Tualatin Hills Junior Soccer League | Home) about 1-2 weeks prior to the start of games . Your head coach will notify you about your game schedule.
Kindergarten and 1st grade: Players will get their uniform (jersey and socks) directly from their coach.
Grade 2 through High School: Uniform is the Westside kit that can be purchased at Tursi's. Westside Rec – Tursi Soccer Store (tursissoccer.com)
Do NOT use the on-line ordering process. Tursi’s has retail staff to help those going into the store but they are 3-4 weeks behind for online order.
It's OK to re-use G2-HS uniforms from previous seasons. If you need a new one, please do not wait until the last minute. Remember that no jewelry is allowed to be worn by players during games.
Behavior at Games
We expect all players, parents and coaches to conduct themselves in the best manner possible. Please use only positive and encouraging comments when at the games. It is especially important that referees are treated with respect, and that spectators direct all their (positive and encouraging) comments towards their players.
Westside Soccer Club does not tolerate any form of physical abuse, sexual abuse, bullying or harassment. Any such issues will result in disciplinary action.
There is currently a shortage of referees. We must treat the referees with respect at all times. We cannot afford to lose referees because they are being yelled at by coaches or parents. If you are interested in becoming a referee, please go to www.oregonreferee.com to find classes.
We will continue to follow the COVID procedures of the Beaverton School District. See our website at www.westsidesoccerclub.com
