Old Allegheny Soccer
Old Allegheny Soccer was founded more than 25 years ago to provide a positive learning experience so that kids can have fun and learn to play soccer. We offer instructional, in-house recreational, and travel team soccer programs for children ages 5 - 19. Our players come from the Northside and North Hills neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, although anyone can play, regardless of where they live. Many of our players have gone on to play for their High School and College teams.

Free Riverhounds Game
August 20, 2015
We just received word that the date for the Riverhounds Game is September 16th. They are looking for a total of 150 kids maximum, as well as a few chaperons.
If your child is interested, please sign up on our site (deadline is Tuesday September 1 at 5 PM). It is on a first come – first served basis so there are no guarantees.
Tickets are free for chaperons and for the kids. The ratio of chaperons to kids is 1:5 for ages 6-10 and 1:8 for the older kids. Not everyone who signs up to chaperon will be selected. So if you want to see the Riverhounds game that evening, you might need to buy a ticket.
We are not transporting the players, either. So you will have to get your child to the Riverhounds game at Highmark Stadium.
Register by clicking on the Riverhounds Registration Link at the top of the left column.
Old Allegheny Soccer has been invited by BIG League (organizer of City League Soccer) to participate in a program call Grab a Ball and Play.
BIG League has partnered with the "Grab a Ball and Play" organization www.grababallandplay.org and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds for a special night at Highmark Stadium.
They are offering Old Allegheny Soccer an opportunity to bring some of our soccer players to a Pittsburgh Riverhounds game where our players will receive free admission, a promotional gift, a snack during the game and a halftime on field recognition by the Riverhounds and the Mayor of Pittsburgh, Bill Peduto. In addition, a clinic hosted by the Riverhounds will be offered at a later date to be determined.
Old Allegheny Soccer has been asked to target players in the 8-16 year old age groups. BIG League will be following up with us with more information ASAP, including a flyer and a registration form that Old Allegheny Soccer will need to submit. So, we will need to have an idea about how many players from Old Allegheny Soccer will be attending. We ask that you wear your Old Allegheny Soccer jerseys to the game.
Please let your coaches know if you are interested in going.
