As they get ready for the 2013 W-League season, the LA Strikers hosted open tryouts last weekend to evaluate local talent and finalize their squad. Per General Manager Vanessa Valentine, the tryouts had "a lot of girls coming from all over Southern California. Through this tryout we have even found a few players that we know will contribute to our success this season." The team has not announced the names of the players they chose from the open tryouts, however, more information will be made available as preseason gets underway.
The team will kick off their preseason matches on Tuesday April 16th against Cal State Fullerton. The match will take place at Cal State Fullerton at 7pm, for those of you who want to go out and support the team. The team’s home opener is on June 5th against the Seattle Sounders at Occidental College. Additionally, remember to make it out to support the Strikers along with your Goats on June 29th when the teams feature in a doubleheader at the Home Depot Center.
