Following a great response at the December tryouts, the Pittsburgh Riverhounds continue open tryouts on January 15 and 16 for the 2013 USL PRO season.  This will be the inaugural season for the Riverhounds at their new home in downtown Pittsburgh, Highmark Stadium. 

The trials are for college players, free agents, and amateur players seeking a professional contract.

Participants in the trials will showcase their talents in small-sided games at two Pittsburgh indoor facilities.  The first day of the trials will take place at the Greentree SportsPlex, official indoor training site of the Riverhounds, in a fast-paced 5 v 5 setting.  The second day of the trials will take place at the South Pointe Fieldhouse, with play opening up into a 9 v 9 format.

Select players from the December and January Trials will be chosen for an intense, ‘Invitation Only’ Combine in February of 2013, with current Riverhounds and other players from around the world.  The Riverhounds Staff is currently active in the global soccer market, looking to add impact players who have proven themselves at the highest levels of the game.  Information regarding the Invitational Combine will be released after the New Year.
