Portland Panther Middle School Soccer Program


Middle School soccer is a great environment for competitiveness and high-level skills training. Any players considering making the jump to the Middle School teams should be made aware of the following:

  • Can be more expensive than recreational soccer.  Increased practice time and travel expenses.
  • There is no guarantee of playing time. The best players play.
  • There is an increased chance for high-level development. Players looking to play in High School and beyond should seriously consider joining the Middle School team.
  • You will be required to try out and will be placed on the team according to ability.
  • Boys or Girls that reside in the Portland High School districts are eligible for play (this includes Westmoreland area for girls).
  • Rules are generally more closely related to high school and college soccer.
