Five U-17 Northern Strikers soccer players were invited to San Diego, California to play in the Surf College Cup this past weekend, featuring some of the best North American competitors in their division.
Andrew Jackson, Madix Palfy, Kaden Baumeister, Devon Huillery, and Daejul Pankratz, joined players from Alberta and BC Surf Soccer to make up a western Canadian entry.
The Surf College Cup is a tournament that is a nationally recognized premier tournament, rated among the top in the United States that is attended by about 500 college coaches.
Many of these young men have played together, going back as far as playing house league in school gyms.
They, along with many other team members in the Fort St. John Northern Strikers soccer program, are starting to be recognized.
We are so proud of their hard work, sportsmanship, and dedication!
