Richmond Strikers Announce the Addition of Futsal

The Richmond Strikers are excited to announce the addition of Strikers Futsal Academy teams.

This year-round program is exclusive to Strikers membership and will be offered to the 2007-2011 age groups. Futsal programming will take place during the traditional soccer off-seasons, summer and winter. 

"With the Strikers Futsal Academy program, we strive to link principles of our soccer methodology to the futsal court. While futsal and soccer are in fact 2 different games, there are common space-time characteristics that help connect the two,” Will Bates, Director of Futsal, said about the new program. “We are excited about the opportunity to provide a consistent message to our players and to be able to influence those involved 40-50 more times a year!"

Programming for Strikers Futsal Academy teams will begin in the Summer of 2019. Tryouts will take place during the week of February 4-8, 2019 at Randolph-Macon College’s Brock Center. The tryout schedule can be found below:
