5/6u - Lil' Strikers

 

 


We are excited to announce new lower fees for our LIL'Strikers Program. You still have the option to train on Tuesdays or Thursdays with a Saturday  festival match day or you can do both training sessions (Tues and Thurs) with the Saturday festival matchday. 

Fees are:

$45 (Tues or Thurs and Saturday) or $55 (Both days and Saturday)

Players will work in group settings with an emphasis on introducing the game of soccer through fun games and activities that promote development of motor skills as well as soccer basics. The eight-week session will include one-hour practices either once or twice per week (your choice) and 'festival' style game days. During game days, players will play with and against members of their own group as well as players from other groups throughout the season. All players will receive a Lil' Strikers T-Shirt.
