We are working on a fun, action-packed and informative day of sharing soccer knowledge that will excite and energize you for the good of the players and the game. We want to bring some of the wisdom and information that can normally only be obtained by attending a convention on a national level like the United Soccer Coaches convention, and offer a streamlined version to you on a local level without all the travel and admissions expenses.


Among the topics that are being discussed for presentation at the Summit are the following:

  • Building a Soccer Community

  • Coaching in Youth Soccer

  • The World of Club Administrators

  • Goalkeeping for the Beginner

  • Grab a Whistle and Become a Ref

  • The Fustal-Soccer Relationship

List of Speakers

The day is set up to give everyone a chance to renew old acquaintances as well as make new friends with vendors and speakers. Discussion and networking opportunities will be available throughout the day. The event is highlighted Pitt Women's and Nigerian Women's National Team Coach Randy Waldrum as our Keynote Speaker.

Educational Workshops

The Pittsburgh Soccer Summit will be offering six education tracks for youth soccer coaches, Club Administrators, parents, and more! Classes will be 30-45 minutes long and will be offered in a variety of formats including lectures, panel discussions and roundtable settings from some of the brightest soccer minds.
