All of these tournaments will be attended by college scouts, and will put our teams up against some of the best teams in the state

We have a great spring season ahead for all of the boys players, and this will surely help see all of our participants playing at the highest levels during the Fall of 2020 for their high school or other club teams.

COLLEGE COACH EXPOSURE

Just one of the tournaments that we have scheduled has over 17 college coaches scheduled to be on site for the event, looking for their next college players.  A second has 21 college coaches scheduled to be in attendance.  So with just two of the five tournaments alone, players will have the opportunity to be scouted by over 38 coaches over the course of the season and assessed among some of the best talent in the state in that specific age level. 

We have a great amount of talent in the Robeson County area, and it's long overdue time that those players earn the right to play on that stage and have that opportunity to be seen by those college coaches and scouts.

BENEFITS FOR HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER

Players are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to be involved in the travel soccer programs.  The Varsity program at St. Pauls High School is ONLY for the serious athlete.  For those athletes that choose to abandon their off season training, we do offer a great JV program at St. Pauls HIgh School for the casual player who just wants to put on the jersey and play the game.  Those players that participate in the travel programs we have to offer will gain the experience, match fitness, and technical skills necessary to play at the varsity level.  Those players that do not participate will be months behind and will most likely be placed at the junior varsity level with their programs.  It is for this reason that we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE any SERIOUS athlete to participate during these spring travel and showcase seasons.

As a point of note, our U17 team from the Spring 2019 had 8 athletes that participated on the varsity team during the Fall 2019, and that team went on to be 2nd place in their conference.  Only 4 SPHS players from the U19 continued on the SPHS Varsity team, and 8 SPHS Boys from the U17 team played on the SPHS Varsity team.  The point is, is that participating in the spring is what defines the Falls success.
