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. The eight-week session will include one-hour practices once per week and 'festival' style game days. During both practices and game days, players will be separated into smaller groups at random and will interact with different players throughout the season. All players will also receive a Lil' Strikers T-Shirt.
