Welcome to the Strikers FC Development Academy Website
The tryout schedule for The Strikers FC USSoccer Academy Boys for the 2012/2013:
In 2007, the Strikers FC in recognition of the club's historical success at developing accomplished players at the national, professional and collegiate levels, was granted by the United States Soccer Federation, the prestigious U.S. Soccer Development Academy designation. The Irvine Strikers are one of 79 Development Academy clubs nationwide and one of only nine in Southern California.
Under the direction of program Director Don Ebert, the Striker FC organization has embraced this bold new player development initiative and approach to training and has attempted to differentiate itself from other area programs in it's offering. Consistent with the philosophy of the Academy program, program participants are subjected to a more frequent and focused training regimen in an attempt to address developmental deficiencies in the American youth player as identified by U.S. Soccer. The Irvine Striker Academy program has also, in concert with USSF Academy guidelines, rebalanced it's training to match ratio; this to reduce the wear and tear on our players yet allow them to play in more meaningful competitions throughout the Development Academy season.
After two seasons of participation, our players are seeing the benefits of their efforts and commitment with a number of our players getting called upon to participate in National Team Camps, as well as being heavily recruited to some of the top college programs in the country.
We invite you to take a tour of this website, review the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Primer included under the menu of the same name, as well as invite any queries you may have regarding the Development Academy in general or the Striker FC Academy Program specifically.
