Strikers Announce "ID Session" for 2018-19 U8 ADP Program

The Richmond Strikers are excited to announce an "ID Session" for the 2018-19 U8 ADP program. If your child was born in 2011, he or she is eligible to participate in the Richmond Strikers Advanced Development Program - also known as ADP!


The objective of the ADP training program is to provide our youngest players (U8) with an environment that promotes learning, creative thinking, problem solving, skill development and a love for the game.

The Longdale facility - home to the ADP players - is a beautiful all-grass facility, fenced in park with a clubhouse, restrooms, and a coaching education room. Over 200 players (ADP & Travel) play and train at Longdale on a weekly basis!


The U8 ADP program is a year-long developmental program:

  • Fall Season: August thru November

  • Winter Training: January/February

  • Spring Season: February thru May


Identification Session:

Sunday, May 20th

Longdale | 10428 Greenwood Drive, Glen Allen, VA 23059

2:00 - 3:15 pm

The U8 ADP will feature both an all-girls program & an all-boys program, with about 70 players total. The program organizes the players as a pool, not in traditional teams. This allows players to work with several different coaches over the course of the season and to work with players who are of similar ability developmentally.

Sign up now for a chance to experience the ADP program!
