Strikers Soccer Center

Pre Challenge

This program is  designed to be a stepping stone to Competitive soccer from Recreational soccer. It covers ages 6, 7, 8 and 9. It is a fantastic and successful program that helps your child get the skills and knowledge needed to move on to Club soccer in the future. Tryouts are held twice a year in January and May. January tryouts help form the Spring season.

Tryouts will be held in August this year (2020) to form the Fall season.

Games are 7 vs 7 on Strikers larger field. These games are on Saturdays or Sunday afternoons.

Although teams are formed, the emphasis is on developing all players in the program. To help with that, full time Youth Licensed Coaches, Russell Steedman and Ross Steedman have been appointed to run the program. They will assist with practices and oversee the games. Russell and Ross will evaluate all players by the Seasons end and advise on the next step for your child.

In addition, opportunities will be offered for the kids to take part in our US Club Soccer League (4 or 5 games taking place in Huntersville on Saturday mornings.) This is a great way for the players to get a taste of Club/travel soccer. 

Spring season runs from mid February until late April. Fall goes from late August until the beginning of November.

There is a separate league for girls and boys.
