Den of Lions Lady Raiders Need Your Support!

Ironbound Business Improvement DistrictWe are excited to announce that our 2006 Den of Lions Lady Raiders have been invited to train and play against top teams in Lisbon, Portugal this spring. This team is a collection of extremely talented girls of which most will be moving on to East Side High School next fall. This trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the team to play against world class teams like Sporting of Lisbon and train in their facilities. Den of Lions is a Newark NJ based youth organization. The coaches are all volunteer staff from East Side High School. The lady raiders were formed in 2018 because the pay to play culture of youth sports had excluded many female soccer players in this area. A large part of our program services players from Newark Public Schools but we also have a few players from Elizabeth, Kearny and Lyndhurst.
