It all started when...
The Portage Soccer Club (PSC) began in 1985 and gained status as an incorporated non-profit organization in February 1991. Starting with only four boys’ teams playing in the West Michigan Youth Soccer Association (WMYSA), today PSC is one of the largest clubs in WMYSA, fielding over 40 boys and girls teams and over 600 players playing from U9 all the way to U19.
Although PSC has changed in size over the years, our philosophy of emphasizing player development over winning has remained and our teams have performed very well on the field in terms of both skill and results. Our belief is that players, parents, the club, and the community will always "win through development" supporting youth to their maximum potential.
PSC owns and maintains the Portage Soccer Complex at 4422 Bishop Road (east of Sprinkle and south of Bishop/Romence) where home games are played. This nine field complex opened in 2002 and is now recognized as one of the foremost soccer complexes in Michigan.
In 2008, the Club opened an eight field practice facility which also includes two training grids. This allows teams plenty of space and at least one goal to shoot on at a time which is convenient for the team. The practice facility also enables other development activities such as common goalkeeper training.
The Club hosts the Portage Soccer Classic tournament the second weekend in June and the Celery Cup tournament the third weekend in August.
