All players will be grouped based on age and/or ability. Parents are welcome to remain by their child's side for the duration of the session.

Access to the Arsenal FC of Pittsburgh Digital Training Ground.

Participants will have full access to the club's innovative Digital Training Ground, a resource we created to help our players' development while at home.

A free copy of the revolutionary book, Soccer Starts at Home.

"Tom Byer has focused his coaching skills on children and reached the point where he is, without any doubt, one of the world's leading thinkers on teaching children the technical skills of soccer. This book should be bought by every parent [...] to understand what a child who likes soccer can learn and how they can learn." - Paul Mariner, ex-England International Player


The summer Tykes program will be held at our primary indoor training facility, The Neighborhood Academy.
