LIST OF THINGS INCLUDED THIS SEASON IN THE FEE

  1. 2 Adidas Entrada Jerseys (Navy and White)
  2. 2 Pair of Adidas Speed II Socks (Navy and White)
  3. 1 Pair of Adidas Shorts (Navy)
  4. A whole spring season of practices
  5. 5 tournaments of competition (15 matches minimum) over the course of the spring season
  6. Competition against the top teams in the state
  7. Play on some of the premier facilities in the state
  8. Travel experience and competition experience
  9. Exposure to college coaches and college scouts
  10. Minimal travel and commitment

This program when compared to the Classic program will offer minimal travel and commitment, and will also offer lower player registration fees reducing the initial cost.  Where as with the classic program the travel is required every weekend, this style of play offers minimal travel only once a month for a period of 5 months.

Also, this program will offer our players the opportunity to be seen by college coaches and potentially recruited, where the Classic program only has that opportunity at a minimal effect at the end of the season and only on one occasion.

Just one tournament we are looking at attending already had a list of 17 college coaches scheduled to be in attendance!

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 oppportunity 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.
