U11/U12 Travel Program

The NASC U11/U12 Girls' and Boys' Travel Program is for players who are interested in playing soccer against teams from other clubs within PAWest. Tryouts are held each May for the most competitive teams. However, there are various divisions within PAWest. This program is also appropriate for players who enjoy the game recreationally but can no longer participate in the NASC in-house program. NASC no longer hosts an in-house program at this age group because enrollment numbers at this age group do not permit the club to do so.

In the most competitive divisions, opponents are drawn from all of PAWest. This can occasionally include teams from clubs in Erie, Altoona, or West Virginia. However, this program typically includes competition from Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. In the less competitive divisions, competition is typically comprised of teams of like ability from the north district. For example, typical opponents in the less competitive divisions include teams from Hampton, Pine Richland, or Fox Chapel.

Placement on a team will depend on the number of players registered, ability level of those players registered, and availability of appropriately credentialed volunteer coaches. PA West Playing rules at this age group include:

  • Players are registered with PA West and require PA West photo identification cards.
  • Maximum Roster Size of 14 players
  • Teams play a 9 v 9 Player Format (8 + Goalkeeper)
  • Two 30 minute halves
  • Ball Size #4

The field and time schedule changes from season to season.  Practices are held two weeknights per week with a typical start time between 5:00 and 7:00. The field location and days of the week for each practice will not be determined until a week or two before the start of the season. Games are typically played once a week on Sunday with a kickoff time between 12 PM and 6 PM. Each team typically plays 4 home games and 4 away games in a season.

Travel Uniform:  In this program, players can no longer wear the reversible gold/white uniform used in recreational play. A gold and white travel jersey are required for each player.  All players must purchase a new jersey this season UNLESS they have previously purchased the gold and white travel jerseys.   See the uniform ordering instructions for more information here.
