​    Does our laid-back style of grassroots, rural Arkansas soccer work? Both our high school varsity boys and girls are repeated 3A West conference championships. Our boys have gone to State 18 years in the high school program's 20-year history. They won the 4A State Championship in 2014 and the 3A title in 2022. 
    And don't forget our 2007 Junior High State Scholastic Cup Championship. 
    On Tuesdays and Thursdays, will your child receive intensive training from nationally certified coaches? NopeMost of our coaches are teenagers. Sure, we have U.S. Youth Soccer-certified coaches. One has his USC National Youth Coaching diploma and is a former USSF referee instructor, assignor and ref. But one of our best coaches is a fifth grader. 
    We believe kids learn to play soccer by playing a lot of soccer.
      Everybody plays! We don’t believe in bench warmers!
    Are we proud to be Tigers? You betcha.


Let's keep our superstars healthy!
Green Forest's kids are the greatest in the world -- and it's our job to watch out for them. Throughout the pandemic, we followed Arkansas Dept of Health guidelines -- and played with masks and social distancing. We played soccer as long as the Green Forest Public Schools were conducting in-person classes. When they took a break, so did we. Now everyone is free to wear a mask if they wish. At check in, we ask coaches and refs to tell us if they have high temperatures or other reasons to sit out. 
    As we've done for a couple of decades, we have never refused a player who cannot pay. But we have to pay our refs, buy equipment, and pay our teen coaches. So, help us pay our bills. And just talk to us if you don't qualify for the scholarship. 
    We are thankful for the financial support of our community, as well Tyson Foods' annual sponsorship and a three-year grant from the Good Sports Foundation providing our kids with great uniforms.


    And let's have fun! Kids learn to play soccer by playing soccer. 
     At home, our players speak 10 languages including Spanish, two Karen dialects, Burmese, Thai, Marshallese, Micronesian, Tagalog, Basayan and Kachiquel. Not all of our kids arrived in Green Forest speaking English. But everybody speaks soccer. 

It's time for Green Forest
Veteran Memorial Park on 12 beautiful, lighted acres next to Green Forest's restored 110-year-old train station and the Lions Club rodeo grounds, across from the Marvin Russell Field of Dreams baseball diamonds. Our weeknight league doesn't travel -- all games are played at home.
     This spring, we have a fun bunch of Under-6 Little Tigers who play 3v3 on Saturdays against Berryville, Eureka Springs, Harrison, 
Bergman and Lead Hill in the Ozark 
Mountain Soccer League. 
     Our junior highs play weekends in 
the Lake Country Soccer Under-15 
league in Springfield, Missouri, as well as 
in the new northwest Arkansas middle 
school league that includes​ Alma, all
four Rogers middle schools, Green 
Forest and a new combined team
from Eureka Springs and Berryville.
     And we could not be more proud of 
our high school Tigers and Lady Tigers, 
in their second year as the 3A West 
Conference champions. Last year, the 
boys won the Arkansas 3A State 
Championship and the girls fought all their
way through the state tournament, winning
the State Runner's Up trophy.
     Our student referees and trainers are 
a vital part of Green Forest soccer. Pre-
schoolers through fifth graders play 
weeknights at 6:30, but our sixth graders 
through high schoolers kick off at 7:30
since so many of them are enjoying 
coaching little Tigers and refereeing.
