The OPSL is constantly looking for top players, teams, managers, sponsors, and referees to raise the level of play, professionalism, and exposure of our top-flight competition, while raising the region-wide standards for soccer at every level.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE OPSL
The sucess of the OPSL derives from its focus on promoting the highest level of amateur soccer in Oregon. The league is member based to ensure the quality of play, in all respects and so that it can be closely managed when it comes to referees, fields, and team managers.
The OPSL board itself is active: made up of individuals who play, manage teams, and participate directly in the management of the league. A top priority of the board is to support the league's managers and clubs, to ensure the players and referees can focus on the games themselves.
Teams transitioning into the OPSL sometimes find it difficult. The jump in competition is challenging. If a team is organized and managed effectively, the OPSL has an excellent track record supporting our teams to become viable contenders in the league. We recognize the four primary challenges teams experience - funding, attracting and retaining quality players and fields, and organization - and as a league we work hard to help our teams excell in these areas.
