We are pleased to announce that the Norfolk Strikers Soccer Club will be merging with Beach FC. The Strikers organization originally contacted us about six months ago in search of a way to better meet the administrative and technical needs of their members. Since that time the leadership from both clubs have been performing due diligence to evaluate the moving parts of a merger and have agreed that the idea was sound and in the best interest of the players in our local soccer community.
With the exception of their Travel program, effective immediately all Norfolk Strikers programs will migrate to Beach FC. Their travel program is based on an annual commitment, as is ours, so we felt it best for them to complete their seasonal-year before coming onboard. This won’t alter any current Beach FC programs, but when viewing your Beach FC account you will see that the Recreation, Advanced, and Junior Academy programs are now identified by either VB (Virginia Beach) or Norfolk based on their location. Regardless of where they reside, families will have the ability to register for whichever program is most convenient for them.
There will be challenges during the transition period but we are confident that this process will help grow a robust soccer program in Norfolk while preserving the high standards that we have cultivated at Beach FC.
We hope that you share in our excitement as we take on this opportunity to grow the sport we all love in our community! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
