WE ARE… SPARTANS!
Welcome to the home of the JK United Spartans, the JKYSC’s competitive teams which compete in PA West. We’ve had great success giving youth in the area the chance to compete and test their skills against the best in Pittsburgh and while working with some of the best Coaches in the area. Teams typically form around U10, but any team with open spots is available. For Fall 2019 we are especially in need of 7th and 8th graders looking to take their practice seriously before joining High School Soccer. We are also looking for Girls born in 2007 and 2008 to join a girls competitive team.
Our competitive teams are year long commitments, playing 4 games at the JKYSC Complex and 4 games in the Pittsburgh Area in both Fall and Spring. Newer team away games are typically at the Robinson area, Wheeling, Bethel Park, or further south along I-79. The club also sponsors each competitive team also plays at least 2 tournaments, one of which is Memorial day weekend.
Practices are held at the JKYSC complex, 2 nights a week for 90 minutes.
For High Schoolers, we also provide the opportunity for Teenagers to play for JK United in the Spring. Ohio regulations limit each team to 5 kids per school, so space is limited.
Below you will find more information on past performance of our programs.

This season was the first time JKYSC took the top place in Division 4 which is the highest level of local club competition. They then moved up to play in the D5 U15/U16 South Division in the Spring Going 10-0-1, only tying the U16 Spartans team. To cap off their year, the Boys won the Westlake Invitational U14 Silver (Highest offered) Division.
2007/2008 Boys Team
One of our most active teams, the 2007 Boys started their season off by winning a U12 tournament in Bethel Park in August. The boys then went a perfect 7-0 to win the D5 U12 South Division. In the spring they moved up to the D4B U12 Division taking 2nd with a 5-2 record. To round out the year, the boys won tournaments in Erie, PA and Youngstown, while also forming the core of our indoor team that played at Cool Springs in the months following New Years.
2009/2010 Girls Team
2009/2010 Boys Team
The 2009/2010 boys started out with a bang going a perfect 8-0 in the fall, beating third place wheeling 4-1 and second place Bethel Park 3-0. For the spring they moved up divisions and held their own with a 4-4 record. 2 of those losses were decided by 1 goal and another decided by 2 goals, making for some intense games.
2006 Boys Team
The 2006 Boys have had outstanding success in past years, but not every year is defined by wins / losses. Although the 2018/2019 season was a challenging year for them, the boys worked and fought hard to improve, and will reap many of the benefits of facing adversity for the rest of their lives.
High School Teams
Each Spring JKYSC fields a number of teams with High School students from the area. These young men and women come together from multiple High Schools to compete. In Spring of 2019, we fielded a U16 and U19 Boys High School team.
U19 High School Team – The U19 Team was lead by some of our most experienced coaches at JKYSC, James Hayes and Peter Parikakis. These two brought a wealth of coaching knowledge to the boys who went 3-2-1 in some of the highest level competition seen recently in the Area.
U16 High School Team – The U16 Team was coached by Brian Loot and Scott Montgomery alongside the U15 Team. The likewise did well in their division, only placing second only due to a game being canceled.
