Past players will be placed on the same team as last season by PSO staff unless they request to be in the player pool. Players who played with PSO last season may request to be placed in the player pool if they do not wish to return to the same team.

Spiritual Development

In keeping with our mission, PSO soccer is committed to introducing Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to our players and mentoring them in the Christian life by the example set by our coaches and league officials. To that end, coaches will be supplied with value lessons that will be shared weekly with their players before each game. Additionally, prayer will be common at practices and games.

The Gospel will be presented to all players 3rd grade and older during one of their games, giving them the opportunity to respond to Christ's call on their lives.
