Brian Farber and the Sandpoint Strikers FC would like to thank all those who came out for week of soccer. It might have been a little wet but it was fun for all including the coaches that came out. We would also like to thank all those who helped and voluntereed their time to make this soccer camp a success once again.
We look forward to seeing you next year!
This is my favorite time of the year when I get to come home and see all the familiar faces of the young players of Sandpoint. Having grown up here I have fond memories of the fields, in fact, I went to school at Farmin where we hold the camp each year. The camp is very important to me because I have a chance to really give back to the club that helped pave the path for my career. I had many amazing people impact my life while playing SSA and Strikers and now it has come full circle. Our goal each year is to bring in quality coaches and help teach the skills that are necessary to reach higher levels of this game. I look forward to seeing everyone again this year!
