Who are Penfield Strikers?
The mission of the Penfield Strikers Soccer Club is to identify and develop female soccer players aged 7-19 years old, who demonstrate the enthusiasm, commitment and potential to play soccer at an advanced level. We emphasize developing players in a way that promotes fundamental soccer skill development, character development, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. We field as many as 3 teams at each age level, from RDYSL (www.rdysl.com) Division I to IV. Over 210 girls play in our Club making us one of the largest girls’ soccer clubs in the league. The Penfield Strikers Soccer club is a non-profit organization.
Why consider Penfield Strikers?
Penfield Strikers is the ideal soccer option for girls who love the game and would like to play at an advanced level at an affordable cost. For $500* annually, Strikers players benefit from:
Regular practices weekly from November through July, facilitated by a trained coach
A full RDYSL league schedule: 12 games from mid-May thru 1st week of August
There are 6 home games and 6 away games
The 6 away games are within Monroe and surrounding counties
Uniforms purchased bi-annually (approx $75)
Team monies that may be used to support 2-3 tournaments (typically 3-4 games per Fri-Sun tournament)
Skills training with Craig Demmin weekly from November to April.
Craig is a former Rochester Raging Rhinos team captain and four-time team MVP. He has accrued over 35 caps for the Trinidad & Tobago National Team.
Opportunities for incremental skills training (all age groups)
Opportunities to engage in community service and social activities
Opportunities for U13+ girls to be volunteer coaches and referees in our fall All Girls All Soccer (AGAS) program
We believe no other club in the area offers this level of services for this cost. Additionally, we have a well-established scholarship program. The Club is committed to making certain that any girl who wants to play competitive soccer can do so regardless of their financial circumstances.

Registrar -- Questions on Registration
Fall is a busy time for us as we focus on three programs:
Strikers Travel Soccer - Tryouts for girls are held in July. Tryout dates are posted in the Spring and on-line registration begins in June. Click here for more information on our Travel Soccer Program.
AGAS (All Girls All Soccer) - Each fall we sponsor a recreational soccer program for girls entering 1st - 6th grade. This program focuses on skills, practices, and game playing on Saturdays in September and October. There are no try-outs for this program, all girls in grades 1-6 are welcome. Registration will open in the Summer. Click here for more information and to access our registration form for AGAS.
Little Bolts - Similar to our Little Bolts winter program, our fall recreational program will focus on fun and games. This age group (pre-K) will learn more about soccer and will introduce players to dribbling, passing, shooting and coordination and body movement activities in a fun-filled environment.
