The Riverhounds Academy was launched in 2007 to provide young soccer players with a thorough understanding of the game and the skills necessary to perform on the field.
We deliver a skill-driven system of development focusing on individual player improvement rather than winning team competitions. Our curriculum was initially designed in association with Everton F.C. of the English Premier League.
The Riverhounds Academy currently develops about 1,300 players between the ages of 3 and 17 and provides identification opportunities to participate in the Riverhounds Development Academy (RDA), the highest tier within our youth system.
We work with players from youth clubs in Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Eastern Ohio.
Our annual summer camps provide two distinct options catering both to high-level players with ambitions of reaching the college and professional ranks and those who enjoy participation without the rigors of a pressurized competitive environment.
