Season after season our kids have a wonderful time playing soccer with their friends and classmates. We have well maintained fields dedicated specifically for the Soccer club located at Kendi Field. From beginners of all ages to seasoned players, all kids are welcome.


We strive to form the fundamentals of the game of soccer, foster growth in the kids' skill and knowledge of the game, and prepare them to advance to higher levels of soccer. Additionally, we aim to develop other skills such as teamwork, dedication, and communication; skills that they will take with them on their journey through school and life.

elks soccer shootout champions!!!!

Brandon Mehall, 14 and Megan Mehall 9, children of Mike and Dawn Mehall, of Scottdale, recently were representatives for the Scottdale Soccer League in the local Elks Soccer Shoot event. In the fall of 2016, both qualified by winning their age brackets at the local competition held at the Kendi Field. They then advanced and competed in the district and regional competitions where they each took first- place trophies. The first place finish at the regional shoot held at Shallenberger field in Connellsville qualified both to advance to the state competition that was held in November at State College Pennsylvania. There they each captured the title of State Champion in their age categories. This accomplishment resulted in both being eligible to participate in the ELKS highest competitive soccer shoot event in the country in Maryland.


On March 4, 2017, they represented the Scottdale Soccer League, Southwestern PA Region, Scottdale Elks Lodge #777, and State of Pennsylvania at the Frederick Indoor Sports Complex, Frederick, Maryland, in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Invitational Soccer Shoot Championship. Numerous states were represented by the best sharp shooters in the country including Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The competition was intense and came down to wire in all age brackets. In the U-14 division, Brandon placed Runner up just missing the title by 1 point. In the U-10 division, Megan placed 4th in a very tough fought competition.

Coaches Background Clearances


All coaches and volunteers who will be working with the children of the club are required to obtain an background clearance BEFORE the start of the season.

Pennsylvania State laws have changed and are in effect for clearances. The process has changed, and you must now complete two background checks.

You must complete the PA State Police screening linked here --->State Police Criminal Record Check

As well as the PA Child Abuse clearances linked here --->PA Child Abuse History Clearance

You must also provide a notarized affidavit if you have lived IN PA for the last 10 years. You can download this form here. ---> Volunteer Affidavit

If you have lived in PA for less than 10 years, you will need to obtain an FBI Criminal Background Check instead of the affidavit. This clearance is an additional $27.50. --->FBI Criminal Background Check

There is a $10 charge for each of the first two, with the full $20 going towards those agencies. Please click the links to complete those clearances. Once you have done so, you can upload those forms to the regular PAWest Background Screening Registration Website. If you have coaches with us before, you already have an account. If you are a new coach, click the following link and log in with the same user ID and password you use to sign into the seasonal registration site to sign up your kids. That website link is --->PAWest Online Background Screening

All info we have on this change is posted at the link.
