Oregon Surf provides youth soccer players in Oregon and southwest Washington opportunities to develop their potential in one of the longest-standing youth sports programs in the Northwest.

Originally formed in 1988 as Tualatin Hills United Soccer Club—the first organization in the Portland metro area to earn ECNL designation—our club later rebranded as Northwest Elite Futbol Club. In 2024, we became Oregon Surf in a commitment to open yet bigger opportunity for our players as the state’s only affiliate of Surf Nation, the celebrated nationwide club established in 1977.

To develop complete people—as competitors and citizens—through unmatched soccer opportunity in the state of Oregon.

Oregon Surf SC will provide the best youth soccer experience for players and their families in the State of Oregon.
