Team History

The STRIKERS start was interesting, how do you find 17 players that are Spanish speaking and English speaking in a couple of weeks.The reason was that Scoringsoccer .com wanted a traveling ambassador group to show the soccer world how a database would work on and off the field. It wasn't easy and then the team needed a coach, one that could make winner 's out of regular players. Coach Lillo was found, he had the expertise as a proffessional player and loves training kids, you can see his resume below.
