The Oregon Crew Futbol Club was founded in June of 2008. The reason for the creation of the Club was simple: to offer children in the community the advantage of playing soccer on a more structured, competitive level. At the inception of the Oregon Crew Futbol Club, 6 teams were formed with volunteer parent coaching staff and a board was created to oversee the Club. The board at this time consisted of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and 1 board member.
By June of 2010, the Oregon Crew Futbol Club grew to 8 teams and added local talent Jake Magdich to the staff to coach and oversee foot skills. By winter of 2010, two more local talents, Sean Kaighen and Kyle Gyurke were added to the footskills coaching staff.
The 2011 year has been a very good year for the Oregon Crew Futbol Club in terms of growth and coaching. Beginning with growth, our club has grown to a total of 11 teams, ranging from U8 through U14.
The growth of the Oregon Crew Futbol Club is attributed to some great success that each team has seen on a competitive level, as well as an increased knowledge that our coaches have gained.
Several coaches have been certified through the youth module U10-U12 license. Bruce Peterson, Assistant Coach of the University of Toledo Women’s’ Soccer Team was brought on to teach foot skills to the teams once per week.
Malcolm Edge, who has vast experience in the world of soccer and is the Head Coach for Woodmore High School Girls Soccer team, was also brought on to coach goal keepers once per week. In addition to growth, the board has added additional board members. We play all of our home games at Oregon Rec South Coontz Soccer fields.
