Where development and winning collide.

We’re committed to helping you continue to develop, regardless of whether you’re in your final years of playing or just starting the journey to pursue something beyond academy soccer.

The philosophy is simple: to be the missing link in the player development pathway. Coupled with passion and an irrepressible desire, our focus is on homegrown, Pittsburgh talent.

Our coaches will challenge you. There is no debate between winning and development. We will achieve both.

Our players will have opportunities to earn individual and team accolades, receive conference and league honors, and represent Pittsburgh on a national stage.

Together, we will achieve greater opportunities for players to showcase their talent in front of college coaches, seek international playing opportunities, allow international players to shine in front of the Pittsburgh and American soccer market.

The game is meant to entertain. Our fans will enjoy witnessing a possession-based, attack-minded style of play.
