DECEMBER

STRIKER FOOD DRIVE

What I love about our club and families in our area is the willingness to always help one another.  Last year, Strikers families collected over 188 blankets during our 1st annual blanket drive!  A truly amazing accomplishment.  After discussing with Joanne Barlow, (Bonner County Homeless Task Force and Bonner Homeless Transitions), this year’s need is for food donations.  They could also use financial donations to help fill a variety of other organizational needs.

Let’s fill the arena with food and set a goal to raise $500 in donations to help their cause.  Checks can made out to BHT.(December 20th-Last day donation/drop off)

Bonner County Homeless Task Force and Bonner Homeless Transitions (BHT) have been providing Transitional Housing to homeless families since 1994.  Having served hundreds of families from Bonner and Boundary County, BHT strives to help families identify housing obstacles and become self-sufficient.  While families live in one of their temporary units they create a case plan, addressing mental, physical and emotional issues while getting help finding employment and overcoming obstacles to work.  They provide individual assistance and partner with agencies in the community regarding client needs.

The community doesn't usually think of children as being homeless, but sixty five percent of participants are children under the age of 18.  BHT serves anywhere from 12 - 25 children every day.  They support parents in getting children into services they may need.  Homelessness is a severe trauma for children and nationally 20 percent of children that experience homelessness will go on to become adults that experience homelessness.

Eighty five percent of people that go through the program move on to permanent housing.  Historically, BHT has been funded by a grant from Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  They are no longer funding Transitional Housing nationally and BHT is now dependent on private donations and foundational grants.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

Strikers Indoor Training

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Please register online using this link https://www.gotsport.com/asp/application/reg/?ProgramID=75516&Type=PLAYER

Session 1: (6 weeks) 11/26 - 1/18

Session 2: (6 weeks) 1/21 - 2/25

SEASON: (12 weeks) 11/26 - 2/25

The Striker Arena. A very Special Place.

In a small North Idaho town, soccer reigns.  At two years old, children sign up to play Kick Start Soccer (125 a year) and then go on to play Rec League Soccer (800 a year) and, for some of our athletic, gifted, talented players, Club Soccer (250 players a year).  Strikers FC players train year-round in Sandpoint, a privilege most small-town players never dream of.  With the Striker Arena, boasting its indoor turf, players can train during the winter months and start spring season with an edge over their teammates who didn't train, and over those other towns who don't have this option.  For under $10 a session, players train with their Director, one of about twenty people in the State of Idaho with an A Coaching License.  This season, they'll not only train with Director Rick Mullins, but with guest coaches and trainers, like Adam Tajan, Conor Baranski, Tanner French, Travis Smith, Alan Brinkmeier, Ben Murray, Daniel Anderson, and even out-of-town coaches who work with the Olympic Developmental Program (ODP) and other clubs.  The price of this training is one-fourth the cost of training in Spokane, and just as competitive.  Players who choose to train over the winter are those who are driven to be the best, motivated to win, and covet that extra time on the pitch.  Players who aspire to be like Riley Walkington and Tyler Moore, knowing that this time spent in training will elevate their skills, give them an edge, and contribute to their game.  We invite and encourage all Strikers players, U8 - U18, to join us at Indoor Training from December through February.  We've set up payment plans to make it easy for families to participate. And if finances are an obstacle, please let us know and we'll see how we can help.  We want every single player at Indoor Training, pursuing their passion, looking ahead to spring season, making themselves and their teammates better.  Please join us.  Register today.
