At the Strikers, the game isn’t all about winning, but we have a set of core values and a club philosophy that are at the heart of everything that we do. Below we have documented these values and our philosophy so that you can become familiar with them and understand why we do things the way that we do them.

Goals and Vision

  2. To produce players commensurate with world class standards
  3. To adopt a game concept that facilitates player identification and selection

Club Culture, Core Values and Identity

  2. Accept and embrace different cultures

Style of Play Within the Club

  1. Possession oriented with intent to break lines
  2. High tempo and attack minded. Advance the ball quickly in short sharp increments
  3. Creativity in the final third
  4. Multifaceted approach to attack (central overloads and combinations, combined with flank play)
  5. Capturing the ball as quickly as possible, but recognizing when protecting the goal takes precedence
