Our History

Umpqua United Soccer Club has deep roots in its community. Its history began in 1974 when Roseburg Soccer Association (RSA) was formed to provide school age boys and girls in Roseburg, Oregon, an opportunity to participate in a quality soccer program.

In 1993, RSA was established as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. As not only the program itself grew in size, but the area in which it served expanded to include smaller outlying rural towns, the Association name evolved in 2012 into Umpqua United Soccer Club as it more accurately describes the area in which it serves. Currently, Umpqua United Soccer Club (UUSC) serves boys and girls in the Roseburg, Sutherlin, Glide, and South Umpqua school districts of Douglas County, Oregon.

Construction of the Club building was completed in 1999 with the help of the Umpqua Valley Homebuilders' Association (who at that time was doing one volunteer project per year), the City of Roseburg, the local business community including Priestly Construction, a grant from the Douglas Community Foundation, as well as material and monetary donations, and numerous volunteer labor hours from RSA soccer parents, RSA Board members and other members of the community. The building houses our administrative office, storage rooms, and a meeting room conducive to board meetings, team and referee meetings, as well as member training programs.

Our soccer fields are adjacent to our Club building, and were renovated in 2005 as a result of a second successful capital campaign fund by our members, the cooperation of the City of Roseburg, grants and the generosity of our local business community. The renovation has provided Umpqua United Soccer Club a facility large enough to centralize our team practices and games.

Umpqua United Soccer Club appreciates the opportunity to provide our local boys and girls with a quality soccer program that includes both recreational and competitive leagues, and looks forward to future expansion and the ability to provide player growth opportunities in order to better serve our players.
