The Quad City Strikers were founded in 1990 as a nonprofit club for the promotion of youth soccer. In their first season the Strikers fielded 5 teams and since then they have grown to over 20 teams. The Strikers are an affiliated club of the Iowa Soccer Association(ISA) and the United States Youth Soccer Association(USYSA).
The Strikers have achieved unprecedented success in their short history with numerous league and tournament championships and more Iowa State Cup championships than any other club in Eastern Iowa. The Strikers are the only club in Iowa history to send a girls team to the Regional Cup finals.
Individual Striker players have also achieved great success. The Strikers have placed many players on state and regional Olympic Development Teams and two Striker players have represented the United States on the National Olympic Development Team, a first for Iowa soccer. Many Striker players have played for local high school teams and Strikers players are on college rosters.
The Strikers' success has been achieved with a simple philosophy that normal kids can be nutured through positive fellowships, coaching, and competitions to become outstanding well rounded soccer players. This philosophy has and we believe will continue to attract and develop the best youth soccer players in the area.
