Strikers League

co-ed league for kids

We take care of the details, you come for the fun

Welcome to the new and improved Strikers program. This 8 week program is perfect for beginning players or intermediate players who do not yet have a team to play on.

 

Overview: This 8 week program combines practices with actual game play. The first two weeks will be 50 minutes of drills and games designed to provide a base of knowledge for players to build on. The following 6 weeks will combine 15 minutes of skills activity with actual game play. Games are between teams in the same age group. Games will be two 15 minute halves. Coaches will be working on a different skill each week and may stop game play to reinforce these skills.

Team assignments will be made after the second practice day. Players will receive team T-shirts to wear. Times will be between noon and 3pm.

This option is great for parents with kids who aren’t currently playing on an organized team!
