Home of Harbor Rec

Established in 1982, Harbor Soccer Club and its staff are passionate about the game of soccer and strive to provide the best programs for Gig Harbor and the Peninsula. Our club offers youth soccer opportunities at all age levels and competitiveness, in an environment designed to encourage development and fun. We offer 3 recreational programs as outlined below.
Ages 4-5
Micro soccer is where it all begins. Children are introduced to soccer in ways that promote fun while learning beginning technical skills. Play is on a small field with a small ball. All play is in Gig Harbor. Practices begin in August, with games in September through early November. All games are played on Sundays.

Small Sided
Ages 6-10
Small-sided soccer is all about playing and learning the game on a smaller field. Play emphasizes maximum "touches" on the ball. Teams generally play in the Pierce County Soccer Association League, with away games throughout Pierce County. Practice begins in August with leagues games in September, October and November. Games are on Saturdays.

Ages 11-19
Club or full-field recreational soccer is for the player wanting to compete at a competitive level yet with a lower commitment in terms of time and fees. Practice begins in August with games in September, October, November and December. Games are on Saturday or Sunday, depending on age level and league.

Other Programs


US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family. How do I participate?

Why do we need a TOPSoccer Program?

TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer program.
