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.


Indoor Soccer at PERRY High School

November 10, 2015

It took a bit of wrangling, but thanks to Coach Spencer's persistence and the cooperation of the folks at Perry High School, we are pleased to announce that Indoor Soccer is returning to Perry High School Gym starting Saturday, November 14, 2015.19/12). In case of inclement weather, if Pittsburgh Public Schools cancel weekend activities, there will be no soccer. Check local news for status. We will also announce cancellations on our Facebook page.    

The times are as follows:

Instructional Players (5-6 Yrs. Old) 8:00– 9:00a.m.
 
B-League Players (7-9 Yrs. Old) 8:30– 10:00a.m.
 
A-League/ Players (10-13 Yrs. Old) 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
City League (13 - 19) can play with the A League (depending on participation).

There is no cost for this, just show up and have some fun playing fast-paced pick up soccer where the action never stops. Parents are also welcome to help out or play in the 10 AM session.

If you have questions, email us (link to the left) or call 888-OASoccer (888-627-6337).
