Twin Boro Soccer | Programs
The Twin Boro Soccer Club operates recreational soccer programs for area boys and girls from 4 years old through 14 years of age.
Our in-house program consists of co-ed teams for players in first grade and younger. After graduating from the in house program, our players enjoy participating on traveling teams. Our travel teams for second graders and older are regional and travel is never more than a 1 hr. drive, with most away games within 30 minutes. In these programs, we break up our teams based on age and gender - the number of teams is a little different each season based on enrollment.
As the players get older, the competition level increases but our goal is still to have fun!
Please note that US Soccer age groups are made by birth year and not by grade, so players in the same grade may not be on the same team or in the same play level. For example, a player born in 2012 qualifies as a U11 player for Spring 2023, regardless of school grade.
At all age levels, team assignments are determined by TBSC board members, possibly in consultation with coaches. Players will not necessarily have the same coaches and teammates from season to season.
The in-house Micro program is a non-competitive co-ed instructional league for children who have not yet entered Kindergarten. Players are welcome to join at any ability level.
There are two soccer seasons, Fall and Spring, and each season is approximately eight weeks long. Activities are held once each week on Saturday at Creekside Field in Oakmont or McKinley Field in Verona. Goals are not counted, game scores are not recorded, and team records are not tracked. Emphasis is on the basics of beginning to move with the ball and learning how to dribble, pass, and shoot while participating in drills presented as fun games.
Players receive a jersey as part of their registration, and need to have soccer cleats and shin guards.
The U8 through U14 travel program consists of gender-specific recreational teams that play against other PA West recreational teams (U8 is coed). Players are welcome to join at any ability level. This instructional league has both fall and spring sessions each of which typically include four home and four away games. In addition, some teams occasionally participate in tournaments during the off-season.
U8 - U10 games are on Saturdays and U11 - U14 games are on Sundays. Practice is typically one or two nights during the week. Home games and practices are generally at Creekside field in Oakmont or McKinley Field in Verona.
U8 plays 4v4, possibly with a goalie as a 5th player.
U9 and U10 play 7v7 including a goalie.
U11-U12 play 9v9 including a goalie.
U13-U14 plays 11v11 including a goalie.
The Twin Boro Soccer Club (TBSC) Board assigns players to teams based upon age and the number of eligible players in each age group. Players are required to play on the team which they are assigned. Players receive two jerseys as part of their registration, and must purchase soccer cleats, black shorts, black soccer socks and shin guards separately.
The U6 program consists of coed recreational teams that play against each other. This level of play is 4v4 with an emphasis on learning the basic rules and positions of the game. Players are welcome to join at any ability level. This instructional league has both fall and spring sessions once per week on Saturday, and each session features a skill building component as well as games. Activities are at Creekside Field in Oakmont or McKinley Field in Verona.

There are a number of options for playing soccer once the snow starts flying! The closest option to the Twin Boro home area is "PISA" (Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena). PISA has programs running year round, so there is always something brewing.
Other options include PA West Futsal.
