Your Executive Director
Tony Paris needs no introduction to anyone in the soccer fraternity as he has been a focal point in Youth soccer for the past 16 years in Tampa Bay!! In fact he has spent 11 of those years at this very club! His qualification and background is second to none. His expertise in building, developing and orchestrating the running of Soccer clubs is renowned. He was responsible for taking St Pete Raiders to super star status with the emergence of Everton Football Club and the 3 year alliance he had forged with them. It’s fair to say that no one other than Paris could have pulled this off! Tony Paris has not only 10 Years of College experience, but has also coached at the professional level and taken teams into the three main European competitions, namely the Champions League, the UEFA Cup and also the Intertoto Cup! There are not many coaches locally, or nationally for that matter that can boast such an accolade. Not only has he coached at the highest level, but has the accreditation to match. Not only does he posses the highest domestic coaching award, the USSF A License, but has acquired the coveted a UEFA A License. This license is held by the few and is soccer at the next level and deemed the highest award globally. He also holds other numerous International Licenses.
Above all, his love and passion remains the same for both the players and the game he has spent his life in. This is evident when you watch him on the field working and his interaction with his players.
