PCFC was created out of a growing need for a soccer club that would provide a high quality playing experience for underserved youth in Portland without the high expense. In the Fall of 2012 Kaig Lightner, Founder and Executive Director, began to develop the concept of PCFC in coordination with some passionate and frustrated soccer parents.
“Success is not an accident. It is hard work, perserverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, LOVE of what you’re doing.”
We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to participate in an organized, high quality soccer club regardless of their income level.
PCFC provides high quality, affordable club soccer to low-income, immigrant, and refugee youth ages 3 through 18.
Being committed to creating a truly welcoming environment goes beyond checking the diversity boxes.
