Striker Sports is a fairly new business in Chino Valley.
Because of their local involvement with youth sports, Phillip and Brandy Florence decided to open a sports store.
The couple has been involved in AYSO Soccer for a number of years. The Florences also are responsible for starting the traveling tournament soccer team "The Strikers," and in addition, Phillip is the boys soccer team coach at Heritage Middle School.
"We offer team equipment and supplies to support the various local sports teams, and are working closely with all the school teams," said Brandy.
"We also accept gently used sports equipment as trade-in and trade-up for the kids," Phillip added.
Eventually they hope to branch out into outdoor sporting goods such as hunting, fishing, and archery.
"Our long time wish in the future will be a youth activity center where kids can come after school for a safe, healthy environment," said Phillip.
Striker Sports is located at 1569 Susan A. Williams Way, Ste A, (behind Pizza Hut).

Its a wonderful thing you two have done, especially all your years of volunteer service for the youth of Chino Valley. I know my kids are grateful for their sports experiences with you both, as their coaches. Those are experiences they will not forget. Good luck to you both
