Rose City Road Trip

The Portland Timbers will hit the road to conduct community events and a youth soccer clinic in Warrenton, Ore., as part of their third-annual “Rose City Road Trip” presented by Providence Health & Services.

Beginning on Monday, Aug. 14, Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe, defenders Roy Miller and Lawrence Olum and Timber Joey will begin the day with a hospital visit from 9-10 a.m. (Pacific), spending time getting to know patients at Providence Seaside Hospital before heading to Warrenton Grade School from 10:30 a.m.-12 noon (Pacific) to help install “buddy benches,” a project invented by 10-year-old Christian Bucks, that gives children a safe, non-judgmental place to retreat.

The day continues with a youth soccer clinic being led by the Timbers youth development staff for children ages 5-13. Set to run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. (Pacific) at Warrenton Field (NW Ride, Hammond, OR 97121), the clinic will feature a training session, along with an autograph and Q&A session. The clinic is free and open to the public.

The registration for the clinic is now closed. For children attending the clinic, please remember to bring your own soccer ball. Thank you.
