Discovery Program

The Portland Timbers Academy Discovery Program is an player identification and development system to find local prospects for the Portland Timbers Academy while creating stronger relationships within the community.

This initiative prioritizes top prospects, tracks the progress of each identified player, and supplements their development to an increasing degree in preparation for potential induction into the Academy.

The Portland Timbers Academy field pool groups at the U13 and U14 ages that precludes the Academy teams. The pool groups are fully funded for programming the entire year.
