ABout Strike Eagles FC

At Goldsboro Strike Eagles Youth Soccer Academy our goal is to create a team centered environment of fun and development.  We attempt to match players to their proper development group.   Players can participate as a practice only player, a development player or a tournament player.  Player fun, development and success is our top priority.

Strike Eagles Youth Soccer Academy was created by Yacouba Ide (Yak) after forming the successful Strike Eagles Semi Pro Adult Team and the First Flight League.  Yak's desire was to create a player centered environment that was affordable and accessible to all youth.  Starting with one team in 2019 Strike Eagles quickly grew into a successful Soccer Club.  The one premise that Strike Eagles FC uses to guide it's decisions is simple, always choose what's best for the player and the team.   Our board creates playing opportunities with over 20 great regional clubs and is always seeking to provide a quality environment for the players.  

Equally important to the player is the Team behind each Team.  Every board and staff volunteer has a strong dedication to making our program the best it can be for every player.  Many hours are spent communicating with the state and other regional clubs to ensue the success of each season.  If you enjoy helping build strong programs, we always welcome help from any parent or volunteer.  We perceive ourselves as soccer family and we enjoy having new members added to our family each month.
