Rogue Valley SC is partnering with the Portland Timbers and will be changing their name to Rogue Valley Timbers. Southern Oregon is now connected to the Timbers Alliance program.
Off the top of my head this means that the Timbers have a partnership with four youth clubs [Eastside Timbers, Vancouver United Timbers, Westside Timbers, Rogue Valley Timbers], regional ODP squads that will feed into U-16, U-18 teams through ODP. Culminating in playing in the USSF Development Academy league. Did I miss anything?
Excited to see to the Timbers expand their statewide footprint and offer a clear path for any player to reach the professional level?
When I played as a youth their clubs were always solid and tightly organized. Some of that may come from the fact they played together for years, but they were coached well.
