South Carolina United YMCA Strikers
Striking Down Barriers, Striking Up Friendships
The South Carolina United YMCA Strikers is committed to supporting soccer players whose needs are not met by other South Carolina United YMCA programs. Our program is designed for players with special needs who may require modifications and accommodations to the game in order to fully participate. Players will learn how the game is played and develop sportsmanship, teamwork and soccer skills. Friendship, fun and participation will be emphasized.
The registration fee includes a uniform jersey and socks for each player. Shin guards are required and can be purchased at Walmart, Dicks, Soccer Plus, etc. Cleats are also recommended but not required and can also be purchased at the same places.
Strikers will play games on the following dates at the Ballentine Park Complex. Field number is U6A.
The entrance to the complex is across the street from Ballentine Elementary School on Bird Rd. Follow Bird Rd. and then turn left up the hill into Ballentine Park. If you miss the turn and go straight, you will enter the BB&T complex which are the bigger fields. We will meet at the U6A fields adjacent to the gravel parking lot in Ballentine Park.
Volunteers and players need to sign in so that we have a record of your participation. Volunteers will receive a Strikers t-shirts when they have participated for the 2nd time in a season.
Each player should wear soccer cleats and shin guards covered fully by the player’s socks.
