The College Prep Program (CPP) is designed for the elite soccer player who wants to be ready for pre-season.  Whether you are a current college player home for the summer, are preparing for your first college pre-season or your first college pre-season is down the road, not being properly prepared is the biggest reason for injuries and frustrating college seasons.

By completing the 7-week summer CPP you will be fit, sharp, and mentally prepared for a successful college or club season. The program will be led by CPP owner Phil Nielsen and Dave Lovercheck, Technical Director, Team Chicago Soccer Club. Each training session will cover both a fitness component (warm-up, injury prevention, fitness, agility, speed & speed-endurance training) and a technical & tactical component.

The main reason for early-season injuries is the intensity of the short college pre-season with 2-a-day or even 3-a-day sessions combined with players not being fully fit and sharp heading into the pre-season. It is impossible to get fully fit in a 2-week period without pushing your body beyond what is healthy.  The CPP will gradually build up the intensity of the sessions over the full 7 weeks thus significantly reducing the risk of injury due to overuse.

To be considered for the CPP, please complete the application at the following link. The program is open to all players 2004 and older regardless of your college, club, or high school affiliation.

The cost is $280 for the full 7-week, 28 session program.

Sessions will be held at Commissioners Park and Gentile Field 6:30-8am on the following dates:

June 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
