Pre-Comp Timbers & Thorns

                                                                            2023 Program Information

This U8 & U9 Pre-Competitive Program is a bridge for our U8-U9 recreational players as they transition into competitive soccer. 
This Pre-Comp program is a coed pool of players born from 2015-2016 that train and play together with a competitive coach. When kids are ready for a comp team we will move them over to a comp team, or form a team from this pool of players.

This program provides a competitive level of instruction for Under 8 & Under 9 boys and girls (2015-2016). This program is designed to introduce and develop the individual player's technical skills with the ball and to grow their desire to play soccer competitively on a team.

This program will provide a quality soccer education by a competitive coach in a setting that promotes creativity, discovery, and encourages players to try new things without the fear of mistakes. 
This group of players will have soccer 2-3 days a week as opposed to 1 day a week in the recreational league. There will be some weeks with less soccer and it's ok if you miss some weeks or days.

*Kids may be invited to play up onto the U10 Competitive team if they are ready.
