The heart of our soccer programming calendar is the summer competitive soccer season. Teams in our summer competitive traveling program compete against other competitive teams mainly in North District (north and northwest suburbs of the Twin Cities area). Centennial SC provides high-quality developmental opportunities for all its players at every level. These training sessions also include goalkeeper specific training for those that are interested.
The Summer Competitive Program includes:
-Summer League Play
-Spring Technical Training (Mar-Apr)
-Summer Technical Training (May-Jul)
-Goalkeeper specific training
-Gavin Pugh Challenge Cup Futsal Tournament Entry
Summer competitive teams are formed based on evaluations conducted by independent evaluators and Centennial SC's coaching staff. The formation of new teams takes place in late July and early August of the year prior to the competitive season of play.
The purpose of summer player evaluations is to place players at a level commensurate with their skills and abilities. There are typically two evaluation sessions for each age group. All player evaluations are subject to the Evaluation Policy adopted by the Centennial SC Board of Directors.
The Centennial SC evaluation schedule is set by the Board of Directors. This schedule is tentative and we reserve the right to change dates and times if necessary. Your child must attend ALL sessions for their age group.
Following the evaluation sessions, players selected will receive an electronic "bid" for a summer competitive team. Once a player accepts their bid, they are required to submit a "commitment fee" set by the Board of Directors. This payment is non-refundable. The total registration fee for the summer competitive season will be set by the Board of Directors by July 1, that year.
Please continue to monitor our site for information on the summer competitive program. Questions regarding our summer competitive program should be sent via email to email@example.com or to the appropriate Age Group Director.

In addition to fees set by Centennial SC for the summer traveling program, players can expect to incur additional fees based on a team’s participation in winter and spring training activities, tournaments and potential coaching fees. Players also must purchase uniforms through our authorized provider.
Centennial SC's Technical Committee is responsible for screening applicants for coaching positions in the summer traveling program. Most U9 to U12 teams have volunteer parent coaches. In order to assist our volunteer coaches, we offer coach education sessions to help our coaches grow in their understanding of the game. Most U13 to U19 teams hire paid staff coaches, who are required to go through the same application process as volunteer coaches. If a team uses a paid coach, individual teams are required to assume the expenses associated with that coach. Permissible coaching fees vary based on a coach’s experience, certification and licensure, off-season league participation and the number of training sessions. Questions on coaching with the Club should be sent to our Director of Training at DOT@centennialsoccer.org.
