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.
The Strikers South Bay G01 team had a great weekend at the Player Showcase. The girls were considered the underdogs coming into this showcase but under the guidance of Gustavo/Luis and the girls' sheer dedication and determination, they placed 1st in their bracket with 3 wins (all shutouts) and 1 tie against some very tough teams. There were at least 20 college coaches in attendance throughout the weekend with some of them already contacting players with invitations to join their team. Overall, it was a fun and successful weekend in Vegas.
Congratulations to Coach Gustavo, Coach Luis and the 2006 Girls. Going undefeated and taking home first place in the Las Vegas Cup.
