Our philosophy and the caliber of our coaches distinguishes the Strikers SFV rec teams from other programs. All of our coaches hold national coaching licenses, have coached children for a minimum of 3 years, and are committed not only to helping players improve individually and as a team, but also to teaching children the important life skills of teamwork, resiliency, hard work, and determination. Our coaches are equal parts coach and mentor, and are heavily invested in making your child’s soccer experience a positive one.
Above all, the Strikers SFV coaching philosophy sets us apart from other organizations. We believe that all players, regardless of talent or experience, deserve the same high-quality coaching instruction as that typically reserved only for elite players. Our players are taught correct soccer technique and the tactics of the game. They enjoy dynamic training that challenges and excites them.
We have three primary objectives:
- To encourage a love of soccer
- To promote individual and team success, and
- To create an emotionally safe environment where all players feel valued.
The longevity of our teams provides evidence of the effectiveness of our training methodology — most of our teams remain together a minimum of 3 years!
Our recreational soccer teams create a direct pipeline to our club level teams for players who are ready for and want a higher level of commitment and more playing opportunities.
