About Strikers FC

STRIKERS FC - Irvine (formerly the IRVINE STRIKERS) has received national recognition for being one of the top clubs in the country for producing collegiate, professional and national team players. Our unique training philosophy has a proven track record in producing elite players. In 2010, the U.S. Men’s National Team took the 23 best players in the country to represent the United State in the World Cup in South Africa. Of those 23 players, two of them, Jonathan Bornstein and Benny Feilhaber grew up playing in Irvine with the Strikers.

Don Ebert, Technical Director of Strikers FC is also the Director of Coaching for the Irvine club. As one of the more highly regarded DOC's in the Nation, Ebert has surrounded himself with one of the region's brightest and most ambitious coaching staffs. The club is now at the point in its life cycle where former Irvine Striker players have joined the club's coaching staff after their own playing careers. The benefit of this evolution is evident in the continuity of the club's training excellence and the perpetuation of a very high standard that began a very long time ago. Ebert is a firm believer in cutting edge training methods and consistency and incorporates best practices and age specific regimens as defined by U.S. Soccer. This methodology begins with the club's U8 teams and carries through to the U18 squads. No matter the age, all Striker FC players receive essentially the same training.

In 2007 the United States Soccer Federation, offered Strikers FC membership as one of the inaugural 40 members to participate in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. As a member of the Development Academy, our players are evaluated over ten times a year by National Team coaches at practices and games, as well as offering exposure to hundreds of college coaches at national showcases. Starting at the U14 age group, the Development Academy is a platform for the best male players in the country to compete in an environment designed to produce the next generation of National Team players.

In 2008, Strikers FC was invited by US Club Soccer to become a member of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL). ECNL is the nations premier league for girls U14 to U18 and gives the club’s female players the opportunity to compete at the highest level. Much like the Development Academy, ECNL offers unmatched exposure to U.S. National Team scouts and college coaches at national showcase events.
