Summer Camps



Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC will be offering revamped Summer Soccer Camps this coming June, July and August. The focus and curriculum of the camps will be refreshed in 2019 to give all campers an excellent overall experience. The camps will be organized and run under the guidance of Rich Hackenberg and Riley Butler. Both are tasked with implementing the camp curriculum under the guidance of Youth Academy Director Scott Gibson.

In addition, the camp staff will be made up of Riverhounds Academy coaches and will feature current professional players throughout the week. The Summer Camp program provides young players the opportunity to be instructed by Riverhounds coaches and can open up doors into the Riverhounds Academy upon completion of the camp. The camps are an excellent way to keep young players active during school holidays in a safe, fun and welcoming environment while children learn new skills, make new friends and create lasting memories.

The Summer Camps are open to girls and boys of all abilities from the ages of 4 to 13 years old. The camps take place at venues across the region in the evenings. Each participant will receive a Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC Summer Camp certificate at the conclusion of the camp. In addition, each camper will obtain a camp ball and t-shirt as part of participating.

Camp Breakdown


Little Hounds: Ages 4/5, 6-7 (5:30-6:30 p.m.)
2010/2011 Boys and Girls (5:30-7:30 p.m.)
2009/2008 Boys and Girls (5:30-7:30 p.m.)
2007/2006/2005 Boys and Girls (5:30-7:30 p.m.)

The camp leaders will ensure player-to-coach ratios are maximized while also assessing how players “fit” into their predetermined groupings. If it is determined a player’s development level is ahead or behind of his or her natural age grouping, the Riverhounds may suggest moving the player to provide the right training environment for all participants.


The Camps will take place in the evenings from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The Little Hounds will be from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
