Here at the St. Pete Raiders we have a unique opportunity that we're able to share with our players. Our Dircetor of Coacing Tony Paris is the head coach for the Saint Leo University men's soccer team. This means Tony is able to watch our players as the grow and mature into possible college soccer players which gives each of them direct access to a college head coach.
Additionally, This close relationship allows us to offer our players college training nights. This is when players from the men's and/or women's Saint Leo soccer teams come to our park and host a training session. This gives our players the chance to play, train & talk to college players and get a better understanding of the hard work and dedication necessary to advance past the youth soccer level.
February 7th marked the first of many "College Training Nights" at the St. Pete Raiders!!
