The Green Bay Strikers!
The Green Bay Striker Soccer Club is an all-volunteer, non-profit recreational youth soccer on the East Side of Green Bay, WI. It provides the opportunity for boys and girls ages 5-18 to play soccer for fun. Last year over 1600 children participated in the East-side program. Our season runs from May through July, August for the Tony Litt Tournament.
Our recreational program's focus is the building of teamwork and self-esteem, having fun through positive approaches to coaching and guaranteed playing time regardless of skill level.
The Green Bay Strikers and several other Green Bay Metro area clubs comprise the Bay-Lakes Soccer Club, where over 8,000 children played on 400 teams county-wide. Nationally, we are affiliated with the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY) organization. SAY was formed in 1967 to provide all youths the opportunity to have fun, develop athletic skills, and build self esteem through the sport of soccer. All teams are randomly selected to create balanced teams, and there are no try-outs or cuts.
Our philosophy, along with the enthusiasm of players and parents, has contributed to our rapid growth.
If you want to make a difference and be involved, we need your talents. A lot of work goes into making this league a reality for the children and your help is needed. You can become a member of the Board and be a part of one of the best youth organizations in the state! Contact any Board Member at registration or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The following is a list of Frequently Asked Questions for your convenience. If you have additional questions or comments please contact us either via email.
- How are players assigned to teams?
Players are assigned randomly by a blind draft.
- Can my child be placed on a team with a neighbor or friend for car pooling reasons?
No. By National SAY requirements, all players are assigned at random to ensure no stacking of teams. Only 2 children of the coach's may be assigned.
- Can I request a certain coach for my child?
No, again this might lead to stacking of teams.
- What if I am gone during all registration dates?
Send us an email for information.
- Why do I need a birth certificate at registration?
Players need their birth certificate to verify age.
- How is age of my child determined?
Your child's age is determined by their age on July 31st.
- Can players from other areas play on the East side?
Yes, but a special request must be made at registration and approved by the Board of Directors.
- Can my son or daughter play up an age group?
Although we recommend against this, players are allowed to "play up" one year. Any parent who wants their child to "play up" more than one year must fill out a Request for Exception form at registration.
- Can I get the exact days my child will play?
During the season, games will be Monday through Thursday. With so many teams, we have little flexibility in scheduling. A full schedule will be shared at the start of the season.
