Rec Academy Training

St. Pete Raiders Rec Academy
Pro Training for Rec Players

Welcome to the St. Pete Raiders and thank you for your interest in our program. The aim of the Rec Academy is to provide recreational players the opportunity of working with our professional staff coaches to improve and develop their soccer skills in a low-pressure environment, with an emphasis on individual player development and fun.
 
All players in the Rec Academy will have the opportunity to participate in two 4-week blocks.

For our U7 thru U12 players, each session will focus on a combination of technical development and small-sided games.  After your child experiences the St. Pete Raiders Rec Academy training program, they will be a better player; technically more sound, tactically more aware, and better prepared to take on all future soccer endeavors.
 
Upon completion of the final 4-week block, players that stand out and show their desire to take their soccer skills to the next level will be invited to participate in the St. Pete Raiders School of Excellence. Those accepting the invitation will continue their training in a small group environment, where they will experience an academy-type training atmosphere.  Training by our professionally licensed coaching staff allows for growth as a player and a person throughout their soccer experience, and better prepares the player for success both on the field and off.
 
Our program will be led by the Coordinator for the School of Excellence, Kevin Dublin, who comes to us with a history and passion of working with young players promoting the leadership skills, sportsmanship, and general love for the “beautiful game.”
 
Each session will be an hour long and will consist of a player to coach ratio of approximately 10:1.
