Newport Mesa Soccer Club Partners with Nationally Recognized Strikers FC

Newport Mesa SC Partners with Strikers FC

  • NMSC gains access to the Strikers FC pathway for Academy and ECNL/EGSL
  • Newport Mesa players will now have endless opportunities for College and Professional paths

Sunday, March , 2016
Orange County, California

Newport Mesa Soccer Club and Strikers FC have formed a mutually beneficial alliance that will help both programs to allow gifted youth soccer players to pursue their dreams and to reach their fullest potential.  Effective immediately, Newport Mesa Soccer Club (NMSC) will operate as an affiliate of Strikers FC and will have access to the Striker’s pathway to the U.S. Developmental Academy for boys and the ECNL/EGSL for girls.  

“We’ve been methodically looking for the right club to partner with since last year”, said Mark Arblaster, President of NMSC.  “Strikers FC has all the qualities and resources that we felt our kids need and deserve.  But, most importantly, I have great respect and admiration for Don Ebert (Director of Coaching and Technical Director of Strikers FC) and the team of experts that he has assembled over his 25 years at the helm of Strikers.  I’ve been friends with Don for over 30 years.  We played together and I used to referee college games in which he was the coach.  He’s a tough competitor, but fair and I trust him.”

Don Ebert, said, “For the past 10 years, Newport Mesa has been developing some excellent players in their community-based club.  But, since they were not an Academy or ECNL club, they couldn’t provide the pathway to the higher levels of competition.  Now, working together, we can help these kids reach their potential.  We’ve helped hundreds of kids to play college, professional and national team ball”.

Organizationally, NMSC will continue to operate as the same well-organized, community-based 501c(3) non-profit organization that serves the Newport-Mesa area.  There are no changes of the Board of Directors and the NMSC entity will continue to focus on developing the local talent, on abundant and quality fields, at a reasonable fee structure.  Competitively, the club’s teams will wear Strikers FC uniforms and will be called Strikers FC – Newport Mesa.  While, structurally, the club will continue to be an independent entity from the other Strikers FC affiliates; opportunistically, all the Striker FC clubs will form a strong alliance that will help gifted players to play at the collegiate level and beyond.

Strikers FC Academy coach Roy Chingirian and Strikers FC coach Craig Bull both said that, “Newport Mesa has always produced very talented players and we are looking forward to helping these kids take it to the next level – to be seen by college and professional coaches”.  

Strikers FC–Newport Mesa teams are accepting inquiries from players and potential coaches interested in participating in these exciting opportunities.  Contact Strikers FC-Newport Mesa, Director of Coaching, Ben Helm at (707) 888-3967, or Director of Youth Development, Nick Dodd at (619)988-8010 for more information.



Continuing with the club's mission of developing local kids, we welcome (LR) Gus Gomez, Sergio Suarez, Steve Whittaker, Joe Vargo, Jose Duarte, Walter Olmeda and JP Richmond.

During the 2015 Swallow's Cup in San Juan Capistrano, our NMSC GU9 Waves had one goal in mind... and that was to make it to the Championship game.  After a tough showing last year, the girls were determined to change their fortune.
The GU9 Waves went undefeated in group play by scoring 7 goals and shutting out their opponents in each game.  They placed #1 in their bracket and were going to the Finals.
They played really well during the Championship game but could not beat the brilliant saves by the opposing keeper.  They finished second in their Flight.
Next year, they vow to win first place!

    About Us

    Our mission is to develop high quality soccer players through exceptional training methods and by dedicated professional coaches in a challenging, but fun environment.  Our focus and our efforts are on our players.  This club exists for the benefit of our children and not for the benefit of any director, coach or volunteer.  That simple philosophy separates us from the rest of the club soccer world. 

    Stucturally, we are a non-profit youth soccer club.  Founded in 2005. Based in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District area.  We compete in the Southern California Developmental Soccer League (SCDSL) -- the best league in SoCal for the serious youth soccer player.

    If you want your child to learn to play this game the proper way -- keeping the ball on the ground, connecting, and working hard -- join NMSC.

    Please do not double park in the bike lane at Bonita.
    NBPD will be patrolling and ticketing offenders.

    No Dogs Allowed
