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.
