Our History

Thank you for visiting our site!  We are glad you’re here to explore being part of our great youth sports community.  

Oregon Flash Basketball started in 2014 with a single team, formed by seven 3rd Grade boys in SW Portland, wanting to play ‘competitive’ basketball.  With the support of parent coaches and volunteers, we created a team that played fundamentally sound basketball while teaching good values in the context of competitive youth sports. 

The F.L.A.S.H. Mission Statement has remained at the core of Oregon Flash as we have grown to be one of the largest youth basketball organizations in the State of Oregon.  Our Flash Competitive teams now play basketball year-round and have players ranging from 2nd to 8th Grade.  We even have a Flash Competitive Baseball Program led by two former Oregon State National Champions that has been a full fledged club baseball organization since Spring, 2020.  The baseball program quickly grew to 5 teams from 13U-High School and is now a premier club baseball organization in the State as well.  

Building upon our experience developing basketball players through the teaching of the fundamentals, we launched  Flash League, a K-4th Recreational Basketball League that started in January 2019.  This new league provided an exciting, non-competitive atmosphere where young athletes can develop their love for the game while also receiving quality instruction.  

In Winter of 2020, we made a commitment to the girls side of our program by hiring Dave McAbee as the Director of Team Flash Women's Basketball with teams composed of girls between 3rd and 8th grade.  Today, between Flash Competitive and Recreational (Flash League), close to 600 youths participate in our various programs offered throughout the year.  

We have and will always rely on our communities for support.  We do not take your trust in our program for granted.  In addition to our commitment to develop your child's athletic abilities, we will ensure our athletes are protected with strict background checks for all coaches and volunteers.  

Finally, we would love to get to know you.  Building community through youth sports has been and will continue to be one of my favorite aspects of this organization!

Mission

Oregon Flash exists to create an environment for youth sports that focuses on Fun, Learning, Accountability, Sportsmanship and Hustle!

Fun - We believe that youth sports in any level should be enjoyable. Developing the love and appreciation for the game is the primary responsibility of everyone in support of our young athletes.

Learning - We believe in celebrating growth and not just results. Our self-worth is not measured by our abilities on the court or on the field.    

Accountability - We believe in personal responsibility. A good teammate is reliable and takes ownership for his/her actions.  

Sportsmanship - We believe that every teammate and opponent is to be treated with respect. Everyone is deserving of our best efforts both in practice and during competition.

Hustle - We believe in the value of hard work and determination. Our competitive spirit helps us fight through challenges and setbacks.
