The new Strikers FC - B U12 Flight 3 team is actively recruiting a netminder (Keeper) for the 2013-14 Season.
If your son is interested in playing on the B U12 (02's) Strikers team for the upcoming season, please contact Coach Matt Murphy for more information.
(Effective Tuesday, February 26)
What follows is the new training schedule and Spring developmental approach for the Striker FC - Irvine teams:
Beginning March 19 (and continuing through May), teams from U-9 through U-14 for both genders have the opportunity to play futsal every Tuesday and Thursday night at Oak Creek park from 6:00-7:30pm.
Coaches will be in attendance but our intent is to have our players just show up and play for 90 minutes.
These weekday futsal sessions are not mandatory but we do want to offer players the option to continue to play and train after their State and National Cup is completed. We have decided to play these two and half months of futsal in lieu of playing the six SCDSL Spring League games.
Continuing.... the new training schedule starting Tuesday - February 26 at Oak Creek Park:
6:00-7:30: All teams still competing in State and National Cup
Boys 15 (Chingarian)
Boys 16 (Fuller)
Boys 13 (Martinez)
March 19-May 31:
6:00-7:30: Youngers Futsal as per above.
7:30-9:00: Boys 15 and 16
As always, training sessions will be held contingent on the field being open and playable in the event of inclement weather.
Please contact your team administrator and/or the City of Irvine Mudline if there is any question whether a training session will be held or not.
