Lincoln Youth Soccer Development & Competitive Programs

About LYS

LYS Development and Competitive programs provide U8 through U16 players a high-quality middle ground between traditional recreational soccer programs and the commitment and cost of club soccer.

LYS programs are sanctioned by the Portland Youth Soccer Association (PYSA) and Oregon Youth Soccer Association (OYSA) and operate primarily within the Lincoln High School catchment area.

About LYS Development Leagues...
The LYS Development Program is for U8 - U10 kids (born in years 2012-2010) interested in playing in a Sunday Development League in addition to their Saturday Recreational League. Kids should expect to have one practice and one game per week with their Recreational team and their Development Team. (In total, 2 practices and 2 games per week.)

About LYS Competitive Leagues...
The LYS Competitive Program is for U11 - U16 kids (born in years 2011-2004) interested in playing in a competitive state league instead of their Saturday Recreational League. While the majority of games will be in the greater Portland metro area, families should expect to travel for one to three games per season to places like Eugene, Bend, and Medford.

  • Practice 2-3 times per week
  • Option to play in tournaments, futsal leagues, and attend additional soccer camps.


  • All competitive and development soccer teams are formed based on calendar year birthdates instead of school year.
