About Us

Stryker Field Hockey Club is committed to developing field hockey skills at every level.
Athletes will learn specific skills, strategies and teamwork. Our particular goal is to create
a field hockey community with a genuine love of the sport and a mutual respect for all players.
The club's coaches come from various backgrounds, years of playing and coaching experience.
Skills will be developed through practice sessions starting in February and running through
the end of May. There are several tournaments hosted by local colleges and high schools throughout the season.


Registration
Please check the registration page for all of the forms, dates, time, and requirements. All athletes need to bring all of the required registration material (if not already mailed in), cleats (or turf-style shoes), shin-guards, comfortable clothing and water-there will be extra sticks and balls for new players. There will be an evaluation session from 3-4, after players have been registered, that will include drills, small-game play and scrimmages.

Schedule
Stryker Team members will be required to sign up for tournaments. Participation is on a first-come-first-serve basis and waiting lists will be created depending upon the level of interest and space available for each tournament. Players will be required to attend the practices that lead up to a particular tournament. Practices are generally on Saturdays for two hours at Leigh High School and Tuesdays for the Training Team Members. Elite Team will have a separate practice schedule. Be sure to continually check the website latest news for any updates to the schedule, teams and/or times.

Background
The Stryker Field Hockey Club began in 2009 by Karin Mirrassou and Kelli Mirassou Nurenburg as an extension of local high school teams of the Campbell Union High School District and greater San Jose Area. Originally named Strikker (the two Ks for Karin and Kelli), the team became Stryker (Stryker is a family of eight-wheeled army vehicles that rely on speed and communication) in 2011 as the coaches joined forces with Tina Parrott, with help from Sue Bell (of Stanford Lightning), and began to establish itself as a non-profit status club. It currently serves around one hundred girls, ages 8 through 18.
