Program Benefits

Player development

  • Development of individual technical skills and understanding of the game.

  • Weekly Training with Sandpoint Strikers Director of Coaching as well as Striker staff 

  • Building a player base for the future

  • One of the major goals of the SDP is to obtain future numbers to help transition into our competitive club, high school, and collegiate programs. “Play early, play forever, I am Red.”


Affordability: $145 (each season) Includes:

  • Uniform Kit: consisting of one pair of Black Under Armour shorts and socks as well as two dry-fit t-shirts with sponsors on front and numbers on back (one Black/one Red).

  • Two days a week training(as a pool) with Sandpoint Director of Coaching (Rick Mullins) and Striker Staff

  • Local Inter squad Friday Night Games. Games will be facilitated by the Director of Coaching and additional staff and coaches. All games will be played at Farmin Elementary (7v7 or as needed) with Two 25-minute halves.

  • Tournament Team Selection: Depending on registration birth year numbers, one or more team will be selected from the 2011 age group to participate in one fall (Pend Oreille Cup- Sandpoint, ID September 6th-8th 2019) and one spring (Hotshot-Coeur d Alene May 8th- 10th 2020). Players will be selected by the Doc. Additional 2012 birth year players may be added if necessary Pend O’Reille Cup is free to all tournament players. Additional tournament fee required for Hotshot tournament. Team fee is split by number of players on the team.

  • Coach Education: The SDP program is a great environment to develop new coaches. Coaches are highly encouraged to be a part of the program. Just as players need to develop, so do coaches. We need coaches for these players as they get older and want to continue to play. Coaches will also be needed to assist on game day.

  • Small Sided Games provide repeated game situations on both sides of the ball thus impacting the players in all four components of the game. Those demands of both the match and training sessions help young players improve for today and tomorrow. Furthermore, the small-sided game format has a positive influence on mental concentration and accordingly tactical transition. Physical fitness also improves as the game is always near the players, which demands direct player involvement frequently. Not only is fitness impacted by this fact, so is tactical mobility. Technique improves through repetition in the reality of game demands. 


***Removal of players from the SDP:  The DOC will have the right to remove any participant for consistent behavior issues, safety or if he feels that the player is not at the technical standard of the group.
