ADF Junior & Iniciado Academy

Our INICIADO program, Portuguese for Start, offers advanced soccer training for players 5 to 8 years old who want to prepare for competitive soccer. In the US, children this age are typically in a recreational program—a less-structured environment focused more on basic exercise and gameplay than skill development. We aim to give our players a head start by introducing fundamental techniques early.

This program features year-round training, offering winter, spring, summer, and fall sessions. We welcome boys and girls of any and all skill levels. Players in our training program will have opportunities to be placed on teams competing in local and state-wide leagues.

The program will be offered in Portland and Vancouver.
