Latest Information for Recreational Programs



The PTSC is happy to announce changes to our U8 program to better help our players develop and prepare them for the move to U9/U10 soccer.  Starting this Fall the U8 league will move to larger fields with larger nets.  We'll also increase the number of players to 5v5 with goalkeepers being introduced.  If you have any questions regarding these changes please feel free to contact us at [email protected].

Recreational League Information

The Penn-Trafford Soccer Club is happy to offer recreational soccer programs for children ranging from the U6 to U14 age classifications.  The recreational soccer program is broken down into two groupings:

In-House League: U6 and U8 players
Eagles League: U10, U12 and U14 players

More details on each league can be found below.

Both leagues utilize the US Youth Soccer age classification matrix to determine eligibility.  Age classifications are based on the player's birth year.  An age classification is valid for a full soccer season, which runs July 1st to June 30th.  Below is the current age classifications for the 2023-24 seasons.

U6: 2018 & 2019
U8: 2016 & 2017
U10: 2014 & 2015
U12: 2012 & 2013
U14: 2010 & 2011                       

Recreational League FAQ's

When does Fall 2023 registration open?
Registration is now open and will remain open until August 31, 2023.

What is the cost for recreational soccer?
The registration is $90 per player, however if you register in July you will receive a $10 early bird discount!

What is this extra $50 volunteer fee I am being charged?
The PTSC accesses each family a $50 volunteer fee once per season.  This fee can easily be refunded by performing a volunteer activity during the season.  Volunteer activities include coaching, working a 2-hour shift in the concession stand or participating in a field clean-up day.  For more information on the volunteer fee click here.

I volunteered last season so why am I still being charged the $50 volunteer fee?
If you completed a volunteer activity last season be sure to check your email for your coupon code to deduct $50 off your registration.  If you did not get an email please email us at [email protected] and we'll be glad to help!

What is this $3 service fee?
Our website provider (sports connect) charges a $3 service fee for each transaction (registration).  The PTSC does not get this fee it covers the cost of the website and the online payment system.

How many weeks is the season?

The 2023 Fall Season will be 8 weeks long for the In-House League and 7 to 8 weeks long for the Eagles League.

What do we need to get our kids to be ready to play?
All players will be required to have an age appropriate ball (Size 3 for U6/U8, Size 4 for U10/U12, Size 5 for U14), shin guards and appropriate shoes (soccer spikes are suggested but not required, however baseball spikes and football cleats are not permitted).

I have some old equipment that is in good condition, is there anything I can do with it?
Yes!  You can bring any shoes, shin guards or balls to the concession stand and they will be added to our "Play it Forward" program.  This program allows those who need items to take what they need.

What days will my child have practice?
Recreational players practice one night a week.  For the U6 players we will hold the U6 PT Training Academy on Monday nights.  For the U8 players we will hold the U8 PT Training Academy on Wednesday nights.  We won't know the exact date/time of Eagles team practices until closer to the start of the season, once we have coaches in place.

What is the PT Training Academy and what is Beadling Soccer?
The PT Training Academy is our training program for our youngest players.  All U6 and U8 players have the opportunity to attend the weekly academy training where we'll utilize a station based rotation to work on skills each week.  These sessions are run by our PTSC coaches and staff in conjunction with the Beadling Soccer Club.  Beadling is one of Western Pennsylvania's premier cup programs and we're proud to bring our PT players the same great training curriculum that Beadling offers in their academy training at no additional cost.

In-House League

The In-House Recreational League is developmental in nature with the focus on helping U6 and U8 players grow as soccer players.  Weekly academy style training is included for all players to help advance the core skills of dribbling, passing and shooting among other concepts.  Games for U6 players are held on Saturday mornings while U8 games are held Saturday afternoons.  All games are held at the Bushy Run Soccer Complex.

League play occurs in both the fall and the spring with each season requiring a separate registration.  In addition to league play, special skills sessions may be held during the off season for additional training. 

Eagles League

The In-House Eagles League is for soccer players who want to continue playing but maybe not at a competition level as high as our travel league.  We offer U10 for boys and girls and U12 & U14 as coed.  The Eagles League teams will play against other local community clubs including but not limited to Monroeville, Plum and Murrysville.  Games will be held on Saturday's with half the games being at our home field and the other half being at neighboring community fields.  Each Eagles team will have practice one night a week based on the coaches availability.  PTSC Travel players may register for the Eagles League at no cost as long as they remain rostered on a travel team.

League play occurs in both the fall and the spring with each season requiring a separate registration. Registration for the 2023 Fall season is now open!
