Our mission is Developing Excellence On and Off the Field. We are empowering athletes, enriching lives and propelling them to their greater purpose.
After coaching players who had a desire to play at the highest level, Coach George quickly recognized the need for an environment that helped these players excel at a rapid pace. The idea of creating an academy that would specialize in training soccer players was born. Focusing on player development, our curriculum at Striker Elite emphasizes technical skills, tactical awareness, mental toughness, character, leadership and confidence.
Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2014, Striker Elite LLC has expanded into a full-blown operation, training hundreds of players in Las Vegas, Nevada and St George, Utah. Striker Elite LLC moved their headquarters to Phoenix, Arizona in November 2019. "This is a very exciting time for us. This is an important milestone for our team and we could not more proud and excited for the future of SE!"
"Our success is a testament to the perseverance we instill in Striker Elite trainees. Our methods work. Simple. It’s about relationships, learning who you are and helping you become the best version of yourself, no matter what. Here at SE, we are family. We are encouraging, protective, and give more than soccer and wisdom...we truly care about our trainees and their families.”
Growing up around soccer, training overseas with the Dutch professional club Ajax and playing Division 1 soccer at Louisville, I know what each level looks like and what it takes to get there. In fact, the road to our training academy’s success is a testament to the perseverance we instill in Striker Elite student trainees.
Players that sign up for the Striker Elite experience not only receive top tier fundamental footwork and striking training from former professional players and coaches, but also gain a support system that works to make them a more creative and confident player for life. Where soccer clubs work on the team component, Striker Elite specializes in the individual development of each player at every age and every level.
We have a history of elevating our trainees game. We have been producing champion players since 2014. Do you want to find another level to your Game? Are you tracking your progress? The modern game of soccer is changing. We can help You!

"We can’t thank you enough for your positive influence on her. Every time I ask her about her sessions lately, it’s always a positive response. “Sooo good” and “fun” are what I hear the most. I have never seen her so energized and focused about soccer. With her club, she would have 3 practices a week and sometimes have 3 different coaches. Some girls were losing interest. It was getting frustrating for her. We are thankful for you pushing her and bringing our the best in her. We can see her confidence growing and the best thing is that she is having FUN!!! ~ Scottsdale, AZ Parent
“From the very first day we met George, he has shown compassion, knowledge and instinct when training with my daughter. George understands soccer inside and out. What is even better is that he knows how to work with players and identifies what to do to improve their game. George is keenly aware on what each player needs to do in order to advance his/her skills. He believes in each and every player. That shows when the player’s confidence begins to soar on and off the soccer field. George is an excellent trainer and coach. I would highly recommend Striker Elite for any player ready to take their game to the next level.” ~Brenda Hanlon, parent

Retriever Rescue of Las Vegas is a non-profit, 100% volunteer-based dog rescue dedicated to rescuing Retrievers (and more) from overseas countries. These dogs are in horrific conditions and without rescuing would live in unbearable conditions and torture. These dogs won’t survive the conditions they are living in and are treated in terrible inhumane ways. Our Rescues receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment prior to traveling. Retriever Rescue of Las Vegas relies solely on donations and fundraising.
