Congratulations to the Chesterfield Strikers U15 and U11 Elite Blue girls teams who were jointly named the Chesterfield Strikers Team of the Month for February!
Both teams are coached by Kyle Sellers, and both teams were crowned champions of the Ultimate Cup in February!
Coach Sellers implemented a Big Sister program that matched one of his ‘03 girls with an ‘07 to serve as a mentor and has paid off as shown by both teams success.
When asked about the U11's, Coach Sellers said, “ The 2007’s won their first tournament this past weekend in the Ultimate Cup. They’ve bought into the concept of one team and not individual talent. They trust each other and play with passion. This group is very special to me and I continue to be amazed at their growth on and off the pitch.”
He continued about the U15 team saying, “The 2003’s have now won back to back tournaments. I’ve never seen a group at this age with such unity and togetherness. They believe in each other and want to be the best.”
He then summarized the two teams saying, “ In the beginning we had individuals. They learned to develop trust, with trust they became a team and now as a team we can achieve anything.”
