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 team.

Old Allegheny is will be hosting recreational in-house pick-up soccer for players 13 year of age and older on Sunday evenings from April 26 to June 28 on our new Riverview Soccer Field.

This is NOT travel soccer.  (We were not able to secure permits from the City for the field in time to be able to field PA West Travel teams this spring.) 

Our purpose is to let our U18 and U15 players have fun, get more touches, keep in shape and get everyone, including parents and coaches, to know one another better.  This is for ALL skill levels.  So whether you are new to the game or a seasoned veteran, these sessions will be for you.

Players will stretch, warm-up, and do a few basic drills just to get the muscles loose, and mindset flowing.    We will then run small-sided games to full field scrimmages, depending on number participants.  

We anticipate the times to run from 3PM to 5PM.   Location will be at the new Riverview Field on Mairdale.  Please contact Coach Lundy at s23lumpy@hotmail.com, or (412)761-7844 to express interest.  

For this to be a success, we'd like to have an average attendance of approximately 20 people.  Bring a dark shirt, AND a light shirt.  Teams will be put together on at the field for each session and be kept as as even as possible.  We encourage turf shoes, but soccer cleats will also work.  Shin guards are a requirement.  Baseball spikes are NOT allowed.  Bring plenty of water, you'll need it.  And we aren’t sure when the city will turn on the water fountain.   


Fall 2015 Registration Opens May 1st!

April 27, 2015

There are changes to the Old Allegheny Soccer Registration process this year.

First - we are only taking ONLINE registrations.  We have eliminated the online registration fee.  We did this as it reduces the time that our volunteer registrars spend on entering data.

Second - we are opening registration on May 1st (one month earlier than in the past) and closing it one week earlier (August 7th).

Third - preseason evaluations and practices for 7-13 year olds will run 3 weeks instead of two (August 8th - August 29th.

Old Allegheny Soccer was started by Ron Zaffuto in 1981. Over the years, the program has expanded and we currently use fields at Brighton Heights and at Riverview Field on Mairdale Street. We have players from all of the North Side and some northern suburbs. Our travel teams compete with other teams in Western PA. Old Allegheny Soccer is a member of USA Youth Soccer Association and PA West Soccer. This fall, we plan to have City League teams for ages 9 to 18, and our in house league for ages 5 to 13.

In House League Philosophy: Our in house leagues provide a positive learning experience for all participants. Everyone plays at least one-half or every game. We select new teams every year, attempting to balance them to provide a better experience for all. Players are grouped on their ability and we try to put siblings on the same team. In House teams use Brighton Heights fields. Every In House player receives a trophy and keeps their Team shirt.

In House Instructional League (5, 6 and some 7 year olds): Our instructional league has been very successful. We have 2 sessions per week. The first 4 sessions are instructional with parents being teamed with their child (hopefully the parents are learning so they can work with their children). After this, teams are picked and half of each session is spent developing skills, the other half games. We play mini soccer (4 on 4) with 5 or 6 players on a team. We use volunteer parents to help us organize these children (no experience needed). Sessions are 1 hour long. Beginning Our first session will be Saturday, August 16th, 12:15, Brighton Heights field. Sessions will then be held every Wednesday at 6:30, and Saturday at 12:15. (Look at "Directions" link in left column to get driving directions).

In House B League, 7 to 9 year olds: Our In House B league plays small-sided games. Teams meet 3 times per week with games every Saturday and weeknight practices or games.

In House A League, 10 to 13 year olds: Our In House A league plays small sided games. Teams will meet 2 or 3 times per week with games every Saturday and weeknight practices or games.

City League Soccer: Old Allegheny Soccer fields teams in the City League. The coaches will select these teams. Past performance and recommendations will be the main criteria for selections. Try outs may be held. Selections are made before our in house league begins.

Traveling Teams (PA WEST): Our PA West Travel teams play games on Sundays. PA West has boys and girls leagues for 10 to 18 year olds. Leagues are divided into 3 divisions. We have fielded teams at all ages and in all divisions. What teams we field will be determined by who registers and who coaches. There may be tryouts for these teams. More details will be posted on the web site in July.


 

City Issues Permits to Old Allegheny for Riverview Soccer Field

March 27, 2015

After an extended wait, Old Allegheny Soccer has finally gotten field permits for the new soccer field in Riverview Park on Mairdale Street.  Unfortunately, we were not able to secure the permits in time to conduct a spring travel soccer season with PA West.  We intend to use the field for pick-up soccer and skill sessions.  We will post these here on the web site and will email information to current members.
