Grassroots Training (4-8 years old)

GRASSROOTS - SUMMER 2021

REGISTER HERE

We have now opened the Summer Grassroots program and look forward to another session of development, growth, and fun for the youngest players in the Pittsburgh Riverhounds Academy system.

Led by Program Director Rich Hackenberg, the program continues to grow in number and quality.  The Riverhounds Academy places a heavy focus on building its overall foundation and structure as well as instilling its top coaches and technical trainers into the grassroots phase of the developmental model. This will provide quality in all sessions and provide a positive experience for the youngest of players.

The Grassroots Program's goals and emphasis are the following:

  • Technical development – ball mastery

  • Building good habits in all our players

  • 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 training

  • High-energy sessions

  • Providing an emotional connection with the player and giving them confidence

  • A platform where young children can fall in love with the game and have fun

Please see the details and offerings for the Summer!

GRASSROOTS UNIFORM

All new Grassroots players in the program will be required to purchase a uniform. Please print the form from this page (attached below), complete and mail it directly to Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC. We will then have the uniform prepared for you, and a follow-up email will come from the club on pickup. The cost of the training uniform is roughly $50. We want all our grassroots players looking the same at training sessions. Uniforms will last the entire year. If your child is a returning Grassroots player, then there is no uniform requirement as it is the same.
