U16 Elite Girls

U16 Elite Girls

Congratulations to the Strikers U16 Elite girls team who were named the Strikers Team of the Month for February! The team, coached by Steve D’Adamo, reached the finals in two tournaments, all in a span of nine days.

The girls first traveled to Florida to compete in the Disney President’s Day Tournament. Strikers played top national competition and played teams from Michigan, New York, Florida, Illinois and Minnesota.

Just five days later, the team then competed in the top bracket of the Ultimate Cup and were able to reach the championship game after beating Virginia Rush and tieing Severna Park Black Thunder.


Coach Steve D’Adamo said about the team, “We chose to play in the Disney Tournament and Ultimate Cup to play diverse competition and to put ourselves in unfamiliar positions.  We were challenged both physically and mentally over the 9-day period.  The team responded very well, improving as a team throughout.  I am very proud of all of these girls and their achievements.”
