U13/U14 Travel Program

This program runs in the spring from late-March to early June and in the fall from mid-August to early November. The NASC U13/U14 Girls' and Boys' Travel Program is for players born in 2011 and 2012 who are interested in playing soccer against teams from other clubs within PAWest. There is no try-out process required for participation in this level of play. Team selection is based upon the number of players registered, their respective ages, and known playing history. NASC strives to place each team at the appropriate level of competition so our children are competing against players with comparable abilities.

At U13/U14, 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. Local opponents include teams from Hampton, Pine Richland, or Fox Chapel, for example. PA West playing rules at this age group include:

  • Travel games that are played on Sundays. Games are typically scheduled between 12pm and 6 pm.
  • A season is typically composed of 6-8 games which are split between home and away.
  • Teams play an 11 v 11 Player Format (10 + Goalkeeper)
  • Players are registered with PA West and require PA West photo identification cards.
  • Maximum Roster Size of 18 active players on game day, 22 players on practice days
  • Two 35 minute halves
  • Ball Size #5

Practice sessions will incorporate technical and tactical activities. Each session will be 90-120 minutes long. The field location and time schedule changes from season to season.  However, practices are held two weeknights per week with a start time between 5:00 and 7:00. Player practice requests for team placement will not be accommodated. For practices, the day of the week will not be determined until a week or two before the start of the season.


Travel Uniform: In this program, players can no longer wear the reversible Gold/White uniform used in recreational play. Travel uniforms consist of a gold jersey, a white jersey, black socks, and black shorts.  All players must purchase new jerseys this season UNLESS they have a previously purchased travel jersey.   See the Uniforms tab under Registration Info for more details.
