1997 to Now
Our journey began with Alli's passion for soccer igniting at the age of 3, with Rebecca steadfastly by her side. This early connection to the sport sparked a lifelong love that continues to burn brightly. Alli was captivated by the camaraderie, teamwork, and profound friendships that soccer nurtures. These core values remain unwavering as the foundation of our mission.
In October 2022, Rebecca and Alli gained ownership of Striker Sports & Social (then Striker Soccer), driven by a shared commitment to preserve and perpetuate the essence of what started the business in 2010. With Rebecca's background in marketing and her innate ability to unite people, and Alli's enduring devotion to soccer despite shifting from competitive arenas to more recreational settings, we embarked on this venture together.
Alli wants to inspire individuals of every proficiency to find or grow a love for sports and forge lasting connections. Together, we aspire to cultivate a community where fun knows no bounds, skill levels dissolve, and friendships flourish.
We live here too, and we work to make it a better place for all. Diversity. Inclusion. Service.
