The Southpointe Amateur Hockey Association was founded in 1995 and was the first PAHL organization in Washington County, filling a geographic void that ran from the South Hills to Morgantown.

In the early 1990s, the Pittsburgh Penguins were looking to build a practice facility to maximize their on-ice success.  Team owner Howard Baldwin led the way towards a facility in a new business park in Cecil Township called Southpointe.  The Iceoplex at Southpointe opened in 1995 and was originally planned to be two sheets of ice, but building costs and construction delays limited one side for use primarily as inline hockey, indoor soccer, and indoor lacrosse.  The departure of the Penguins as a tenant and various ownership struggles over the years did not deter the rink nor the amateur organization from remaining steady, and an ownership change in 2022 finally has that second sheet of ice becoming a reality in 2023.  The rink is now called Printscape Arena at Southpointe.

The organization changed is name in 2021 to the South Pittsburgh Hockey Club, and with that, the Southpointe Rink Rats became the South Pittsburgh Rebellion.  South Pittsburgh remains the only PAHL organization in Washington County.
