South Side Area Soccer


South Side Area Soccer 

South Side Area Youth Soccer Association is a non-profit organization that provides recreational and competitive soccer for children ages 4 - 18 for both girls and boys.  Our year consists of two separate seasons, both spring and fall.  Typically our program draws players from  Hanover Twp., Hookstown, Greene Twp.,  Georgetown, Shippingport, Frankfort Springs, Oak Glenn, WV, East Liverpool, OH, and many other surrounding communities.  Our players come mainly from the local South Side Area School district,  but we accept players from anywhere and have many players who travel long distances to play for South Side.

South Side Area Soccer has been in existence in our community for well over 30 years.  Our mission is to teach the game of soccer, emphasizing sportsmanship and team play in a fun and friendly way, to all our players at every age and skill level.  South Side offers both in-house, recreational and competitive, travel teams.  Our teams practice and play at the Raccoon Creek State Park/ South Side Area Soccer Fields,  Located at 2937 PA-18, Hookstown, Pa 15050.  Typically U6-8 in-house teams practice once a week on a regular schedule.  In-house games are played on Saturdays against other teams within our club, within the same age group.  South Side's travel teams play on Sunday afternoons and compete against other competitive travel programs across Western Pennsylvania.   


South Side's travel coaches are nationally licensed.  South Side offers coaching education opportunities for all its coaches.  All South Side Area Soccer head and assistant coaches are required to maintain their Youth Soccer Coaching Certification certified by the United States Soccer Federation.  South Side has many coaches who also hold their National E License, State D License, and National D License in soccer coaching, licensed by the United States Soccer Federation. 


All South Side games are refereed by fully certified referees, licensed by the US Soccer Federation.   We encourage younger players that are interested in refereeing to speak with any of our board members about learning more and mentoring.

South Side Area Soccer is operated completely by volunteers.   South Side is a growing organization and is always looking for anyone willing to serve as a coach, assistant coach, line painter, concession stand management team member, spirit shop management team member, fundraising committee member, spring picnic committee member, or otherwise help in any possible way.  It takes many people to run a successful league, but with the commitment of all of our dedicated families and volunteers, we will be sure to see continued growth and success for many, many years to come.  If you wish to volunteer in any way for South Side Area Soccer, please contact any of our board of directors.

All South Side coaches, board members, and volunteers are required to maintain appropriate state and federal child abuse history clearances.
