Seminole Sports

SEMINOLE TEAM

Seminole Sports is an entity operated by a collective group of former high school and college athletes. They are dedicated to putting forth a quality product from which many young athletes will benefit. We truly feel that our customer service, organization, and communication is what sets us apart from others. Our tournament directors have years of experience and are readily accessible on site.  Each year we bring in college student interns.  Many of these students come back the next year to work on our staff.  We pride ourselves in getting to know all of the teams on more than an informal basis in an effort to continue to grow a lasting relationship with all players, coaches, fans, and organizations. Please be sure to read our staff biographies to further acquaint yourself with the Seminole Sports team. We will see you on the ball fields!
