South Side Market House to begin fall programs soon

Market House soccer to begin shortly. News was in the South Pittsburgh Reporter.

The photo above was taken of the kids giving each other a handshake at the end of the game, a tradition at the Market House.

The Market House is a Citipark Rec Center and Senior Center. The Rec Center activities were closed by Mayor Murphy a couple of years ago. All centers were shut. The Market House has re-opened to kids activities again, to some degree, but NOT by the city as it was. Parents and volunteers have a much bigger role in the programming now.

Youth soccer sign-ups are slated for 6 pm to 8 on Monday, Sept. 19 and Thursday Sept. 22 at the Market House.

The programs will be held Mondays, Tuesdays and Thrusdays. Age groups are 4, 5 and 6 year olds from 4:15 pm to 5. The 7, 8, 9 and 10s are from 5:15 to 6 pm.

The games are once or twice a week, after a few weeks of practices. Family night ends the program on December 2.

Open to boys and girls, the nonrefundable fee of $10 is required at sign up. Call 412 488 8390 for more specifics.

The South Pgh Reporter site is a bit out of date. I can't link to the story with the sign-up details now.
