The Royal Palm Beach Strikers U12G team is off to a great start. In August, the all-girls competitive team competed in the 2016 Vero Cup Tournament. After four games in the extreme heat and pending tropical storm weather, the team advanced to the finals, placing second in the division. The U12G Strikers are currently playing in the Palm Beach Soccer League Early Season. On Sept. 10, the Strikers played against Jupiter United Blue Team, tying 2-2. Early season games continue through October.
