The entire Strikers FC South Bay organization would like to congratulate Luis Garibay from Marcus Chorvat's 2001 team for being accepted to Dixie University, a division 1 school located in Utah, to attend and play soccer. Luis shined in every match at the Far West Regionals, making jaw dropping plays and saves throughout tournament. Dixie saw him, and scouts came back to watch him at the quarter finals, semifinal, and the final match and now he’s headed to a Division 1 University on a scholarship.
Congratulations to Coach Ronaldo Teixeira's Boys 2005 team for winning the South Bay Classic.

Congratulations Strikers FC South Bay 2000 Gold
Dear Striker Family,
Please join me in congratulating our Striker FC B00 Gold team who competed in their 2nd Far West Regional tournament in Boise last week. Over the course of a week these boys managed to come out in 1st place in group play, winning their quarterfinal 2-0 against the local favorite, Boise Cutthroats and eventually ending their tournament run in the semifinals losing a tough fought game to Downtown Las Vegas 3-2. They battled to the end as a truly a great group of boys came together to compete in their last club soccer competition for Strikers FC Southbay.
A few players will be playing at the collegiate level this fall.
1.) F: Noah Ristovski: Chico State Univ. (DII)
2.)F: Rich Humphreys: Cal State San Marcos (DII)
3.) F: Josh Gaudiano: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in NY (DIII)
4.) Ian Sinkowitz: Tufts University in Boston (DIII)
5.) Gabriel Palomares: UC Santa Cruz (DIII)
As for the rest of the team, most of them have accepted offers at other universities to focus on their studies and will play soccer at a recreational level. We want to wish them all the best in their future endeavors with hopes they become great supporters of the game and continue the passion & love as they did when they first started for the Strikers Organization.
Marcus Chorvat, Director of Coaching
Dear Striker Family,
Our Striker B01's competed in the Far West Regionals this past weekend. These young men (pictured above) managed to compete with the best-of-the-best in the west. Playing 6 matches over the course of 7 days and holding their opponents to only 4 goals while scoring 19 which was an accomplishment in itself, unfortunately they came short in the end against the high-pressing, large roster Sparta Utah team. The odds were stacked against the young & tired 15 man roster but they played hard til the end.
In the finals the boys were awarded a PK in the 58th min to tie. Unfortunately the keeper made a good save and denied our chances. After that we tried putting together an attack but the their numbers just outweighed ours and it showed in the end losing 2-0.
All these boys from the 01s black, 01s white, 02 black, and 03 black represented this team & club in a very highly competitive tournament. We hope to continue this type of development for the future and hope to have other younger teams come through the ranks and tell the same story for years to come.
I want to thank you all for your support and hope to see all of our youth develop to this level

Congratulations to the Strikers FC SB B07 on winning the Cerritos Challenge Cup. They went undefeated throughout the weekend leading to a 2-1 victory against Beach FC SB.
It is with great pride that we announce that our Strikers South Bay club has won its first ever National Cup title.
Last weekend our Boys 2000 Gold team coached by Marcus Chorvat, Head Coach and Club DOC, faced off in the BU19 National Cup Final at Galway Downs in Temecula against Santa Monica United FC and WON in an astounding 6-0 victory!
It has been a long road for this amazing team, who made it to the final in National Cup two years ago and suffered a heartbreaking defeat. Many of these boys have been training under Marcus for more than 6 years and made the transition to Strikers from ‘another club’, brave enough to bet the house on red and black when we stood up the Strikers South Bay brand three years ago.
This amazing accomplishment validates the mission of this club - that with the combined loyalty of coach and players, commitment to the craft, perseverance through the tough times, hard work, and love of the game, anything is possible.
Our sincere congratulations and thanks to Coach Marcus, to all of the parents, and to these amazing boys for this massive accomplishment.
The team will head to Far West Regionals in Honolulu, Hawaii to face off against the best of the best in June to continue their journey.
With sincere pride, thanks, and best wishes for continued success of club and team… Go Strikers.
What a great turnout at our inaugural Supporters Night and Coaches vs. Seniors match! Strikers teams of all ages turned up in big numbers in support of our coaches! From painted faces to fan posters, to coach head sticks, amazing creativity was shown by all! With a final score of 4-3 in favor of the coaches, it was a well fought match and highly entertaining to watch!
Thank you to all our Strikers kids and coaches who played, to our members who came out to support, and to our referee crew who volunteered their time to this event.
Looking forward to next year!
