The Adidas Portland Timbers Alliance is a strategic partnership with elite youth clubs in the Portland Timbers development territory, designed to build unique working relationships and development opportunities to help channel the top youth players towards the Timbers/Thorns development programs and the Timbers/Thorns Academy. Boise Nationals is proud to represent the Timbers Alliance as the founding member in Idaho and a continuing flagship club.
As part of the alliance, the Timbers share coaching resources and curriculum with Alliance clubs in the development of both boys and girls youth players. Additionally, youth clubs in the Alliance will be allowed the unique privilege of incorporating the Timbers brand into their club name and wear a special adidas Timbers Alliance badge as part of the uniform. On the field, each alliance club will wear the same red jersey in recognition of the partnership with the Timbers.
Young players throughout the region have the opportunity to try out for a Timbers/Thorns Academy team or a place in one of the Regional Training Centers throughout the state as well as the Olympic Development Program. Additionally, the Alliance clubs regularly hold special tryouts for one-off Alliance teams for larger showcase events and tournaments. Boise Nationals regularly places players in each of these programs and we're proud to continue developing top-class players at every age group. Alliance clubs also hold special "play day" events for younger players to provide additional game and development opportunities.
Other Alliance Clubs: Washington Timbers, Westside Timbers, Bend FC Timbers, Rogue Valley Timbers, Eastside Timbers
