Tony Paris - CEO & Director of Coaching

Tony Paris needs no introduction to anyone in the soccer fraternity as he has been a focal point in Youth soccer for the past 23 years in Tampa Bay!! In fact, he has spent 17 of those years at this very club! His qualifications and background is second to none. His expertise in building, developing and orchestrating the running of soccer clubs is renowned.

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 and NSCAA Premier Award but has  the coveted  "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.
