The competitive league provides its players with a greater opportunity to develop his/her soccer skills. These players seek to be challenged in the game of soccer. Since soccer can be a lifelong sport for some players, these more serious players seek the competitive league to build and hone their skills in order to give them the best possible opportunity to succeed in high school and beyond.
Players must be placed for roster spots on a competitive team through open assessments. Through the assessment process, the goal of OFA is to fairly and objectively evaluate each and every player and rank them on their demonstrated ability, tactical awareness and technical skill. Competitive teams will be formed according to those rankings. Sometimes more than one team may be formed at an age division but one team, known as the A team, will have the strongest players.
Competitive teams are encouraged to participate in at least two tournaments per year. Teams will require the players and parents to travel to various places throughout Oregon and northern California. This level of participation will increase the financial burden to play. Teams are encouraged to fund raise to pay for events and travel expenses.
