While the Ballarat Eureka Strikers is a new entity, it is actually a continuation of a long history of elite female football in the Ballarat region.
The Eureka Strikers went the 2015 season undefeated, winning the State League 1 Championship.
Unfortunately our senior team got relegated in 2017, and now play in state 2, we are fighting very hard to get back up the to state 1 for the 2019 season.
The squad blends youth with experience, providing opportunities for the best talent in the region to develop in a supportive environment.
The Senior teams practice each Tuesday and Thursday from 6.30pm to 8 pm at Morshead Park. Tuesday’s training occurs on Synthetic Pitch 1 at Morshead Park, while Thursday training alternates between Synthetic Pitch 2 and the Stadium Pitch. All games are played on a Sunday and alternate between home and away games.
