Willamette United FC is using a new registration platform for all our soccer programs. Parents will need to create a PlayMetrics account before they can register their player.

Willamette United is proud to offer the premier Player Development Program in the area. This program is designed to help young players develop their skills in a fun and productive environment. PDP teams will practice two times per week and training sessions are planned using the latest US Soccer Curriculum and youth development techniques from around the world. Our staff utilizes the best fields available, as well as the best equipment, including: balls, goals, and other Nike training equipment.

Our PDP staff is committed to providing each individual player with the best possible experience. We pride ourselves on having the most qualified, energetic, and professional staff coaches working in our PDP program. They really are the best in the business! Our staff does a fantastic job communicating expectations with players and parents. They also help manage all of the logistics of training, games, and other events throughout the year. At the end of the day, our staff coaches are encouraged to become mentors and true youth development experts in addition to great soccer coaches!


Having had our son come up through the soccer ranks at WUFC, from Rec to PDP to Classic and beyond.. The amount of development that occurs in just those short PDP years is incredible. Much of this is due to the focus of the WUFC PDP coaching staff on developing the person as well as the soccer player. I would recommend WUFC PDP to anyone, proof being that our daughter is now benefiting from their program. She is improving day by day, is part of a great team, oh and did I mention they treat you like family? Go Willamette!

The PDP program offered by WUSC is just an amazing experience for young soccer players. I have had three kids that have participated in the program and all of them loved the extra attention. They were able to spend more time on the pitch and improve their soccer skill. I truly believe this program helped them to become better players. The coaches are fantastic and spend so much time with each and every player! We are so blessed that our club offers such a valuable program.

We’ve had two boys graduate from the PDP program, and we feel like they both were well prepared for the next stage of their soccer careers. Willamette PDP is a great bridge between the recreational experience and the higher expectations of classic soccer. We saw dramatic technical improvement in both of our sons throughout PDP, without sacrificing their love of the game. From the coaching staff to the parents, the focus is 100% on development as opposed to winning and losing games, which has clearly benefited the kids as they’ve moved through the system.

The Willamette United Football Club Player Development Program was such a positive experience for our seven-year-old son this past season. The coaches delivered developmental skills training with a passion for the game and sportsmanship while keeping each individual player engaged, included and entertained. Our son had a boost in confidence, gained a better understanding of team-play, worked hard to develop his footwork and skills and found new friends along the way. We have nothing but good things to say about this outstanding developmental program and coaching staff!
