About Travel Soccer

Overview

The Richmond Strikers Travel program is designed for youth soccer players who are looking to compete at a high level of soccer. Players are selected to teams based on ability. Strikers travel teams compete in leagues in Richmond and across the state, as well as participate in local and out-of-state tournaments. The teams are coached by qualified and licensed coaches employed by the club.

Our goals are:

1. To create a soccer environment that is both age and ability appropriate for each of our players

2. To develop technically competent soccer players who are able to accurately control and pass the ball, be effective attackers and defenders in 1v1 situations, and to be critical, independent thinkers on the field.

3. We believe that every player is capable of improving his or her overall soccer performance. We are committed to providing the instruction and support to give our players the best opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of age or level.
