Comp Prep Program

Comp Prep

The Comp Prep program is designed for young soccer players who are considering joining the North Metro competitive/traveling soccer program over the next year or two. Comp Prep is for experienced players in grades 1 & 2 who already have some experience playing soccer and who exhibit strong soccer skills. This program offers an increased level of training, as well as more playing time than the traditional Rec program. The Comp Prep program builds on the foundation of skills that players have learned in the traditional Recreational program while providing a similar training and game schedule that players find at the Competitive level.

The season typically begins in late April, and ends with a Jamboree in late June.  For players who choose to attend, there will be minimal extra fees collected to attend tournaments and/or jamborees throughout the season.  The Comp Prep field size will be similar to the youngest comp level fields, but there are no referees as coaches manage the games while working with the players on those days.

Teams meet twice a week. On the training night, coaches and players work in a circuit format with professional trainers as they move through stations while getting to know all coaches and players. On game nights, the coach (and assistant/co-coach) lead their individual team in games against other teams within the program. 

The goal of the Comp Prep Program is to provide players, coaches, and parents with the training, guidance and preparation needed for a successful transition from recreational soccer to their 'career' in North Metro's Competitive program.  The Comp Prep Program has developed into the ideal way for players to adjust to the differences between Recreational and Competitive soccer.  Please e-mail David with questions you may have about this exciting program.
