Cost of Participation $2,500
We believe as a prep program that it is important that players and their parents see the efficiency in which we utilize the funding into our program. Though we are predominately funded by player fees, we are not completely funded by that means only. We benefit greatly as a non-profit organization through the generous giving of sponsors and fundraisers. However, here is a breakdown of what the $2,500 player (football) fee covers and also other additional options that CMP Prep Academy offers.
All administration costs to run this program will be taken care of utilizing player fees. Administration costs covers all expenses that occur during the season that may not be covered by other specific fees listed below. This is also used for any other unexpected expenses that may accumulate during the season. Administration costs include, but are not limited to (web site, recruiting sites used to assist, office supplies, housing of college scouts, team hudl accounts, etc.)
Equipment is a very vital necessity for any football program. All players equipment purchased during the season, (Helmet, shoulder pads, etc.) are the property of CMP Prep Academy and need to be returned at the completion of the season. Other equipment (tackling dummies, arm shields, footballs, sleds, helmet visors and repair kits, etc.) are also the property of CMP Prep.
This part of players total fee is transportation to away games. This fee helps cover drivers, bus, gas, planes, etc. At CMP Prep we believe it is very important to give our players the best college experience despite not having them at the four year institution that they desire. We attempt to heavily schedule away games against Junior College and Division 3 programs and fill in our schedule with prep programs. When traveling we supply both pregame and post game meals. Under no circumstances do we expect our players to have to supply their own travel to games. We also have strict travel exemptions for any player to travel to a game outside of the team's supplied transportation.
All players who compete with CMP Prep Academy will receive brand new customized game jerseys and pants. There will be a home and away uniform as well as up to 2 alternate uniforms (October Breast Cancer awareness uniform and another possible sponsor issued uniform). The home and away uniforms will be for every individual player to keep once there player fee is paid in its entirety. Players will also be receiving practice jerseys, shorts, and game socks.
