Pittsburgh Dynamo Youth Soccer is pleased to sponsor a series of recreational soccer clinics for women over 30 who would like to learn how to play soccer or improve
their soccer skills. By sponsoring these clinics, Dynamo hopes to encourage more women to get involved in youth soccer as coaches and referees, and even just kicking a ball around with their kids.
If you over over 30 and have little or no adult soccer experience, then Dynamoms may be for you! Absolute beginners are welcome. And you don't actually have to be a mom. Come learn how to play
soccer safely, get some exercise, and have fun! Since Fall 2013, Dynamoms has run fall and spring outdoor clinics and winter indoor clinics.
Dynamoms was featured in a July 2021, CMU Piper article, a May 21, 2014 Pittsburgh
Tribune-Review article and in a Fall 2014 Shady Ave magazine article.
Dynamoms clinics are taught by experienced soccer coaches. These 90-minute sessions are designed to help participants learn and practice basic soccer skills and rules
of play. We also do cardio exercises and stretching to promote fitness. We spend the first half of each clinic on skills development. We play scrimmages during the second half of each clinic to
practice skills and rules of play in real game scenarios. We start with the basics every season, so even if you have never played soccer, we encourage you to sign up!
Dynamoms participants should wear shin guards with soccer socks, athletic shoes or soccer cleats (outdoors only), and comfortable clothes. Any comfortable athletic shoes will do, but many of our members prefer turf cleats (for example, the Adidas Mundial Team Turf Soccer Cleat is available from online retailers and is very popular). Please do not wear any
jewelry. Bring a water bottle and a size 5 soccer ball. We play our winter indoor season on a wooden gym floor, so wear gym shoes, running shoes, or soccer
shoes designed for indoor surfaces (no cleats).

Soccer camp returns this spring! We are heading back to gorgeous Camp Soles
, a family-run camp in Rockwood, PA (near Seven Springs/Somerset) approximately 75 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
Arrive Thursday evening for charcuterie and chilling and get settled in. Friday and Saturday, we play during the day and then relax around the fire after sundown (based on previous experience, fireside dance parties are highly likely). Sunday, we have breakfast and more play and head home around noon. Our hosts also provide optional camp activities including archery, kayaking and a climbing wall/ropes course. We stay in wooden cabins that have heat, electricity, bunk beds and indoor showers/bathrooms either in the cabin or a few steps away. As of this writing, our group has the camp to ourselves once again, though that may change. As always, COVID safety is a priority and all attendees must be vaccinated.
Amenities include a large, beautiful field, an historic lodge/mess hall. a gorgeous lake, hiking trails, paddleboards and a covered outdoor area with a projector screen perfect for watching classic women’s soccer games. Check out the photos from the last camp
. Please invite non-footy friends who would enjoy sitting by the lake during the day and then hanging around the fire at night. The cost is $330 including all meals, coaching fees and accommodations (T-shirts will be available soon separately). Spread the word! We need 25 people to register. See you on the pitch!
