The LA Striker's inaugural year has been one of growth, allowing players to team build and improve, capping their season record at (4-9-1). With the team's visit to K&N, the Strikers were able to learn more about K&N products and the process of taking a filter from raw material to finished good with all the benefits K&N parts include. After the tour the players held an interview with K&N product specialists Matt Smith and Vincent Pistonetti.

Player Alisha Foote, a left wing for the franchise who's hometown is Brisbane, Australia reported to K&N her enjoyment for playing for the Strikers as well as her delight for driving her Suzuki Swift when back home in Queensland. A hopeful to someday see Olympic gold, Foote stated that she enjoyed the tour and seeing the massive scale of K&N's production line.

Midfielder Katie Tarrant, a worldwide player from Vancouver, has been involved with many pro leagues and teams such as the Chelsea ladies in the UK and now most recently, the LA Strikers. Aspiring someday to coach either professionally or for a school, Tarrant reported that "growing up around cars and motorcycles, it was really cool to see how all the [K&N] parts are made." Midfielder Amy Chapman, also a native of Australia, told K&N product specialists about her love of Soccer and her aspirations to be a coach for any and all sports after having played for multiple national women's teams around the world and her excitement of being part of the new Strikers team.
