2017 SEC Champions, ECT Champions, Non Public A North Finalists

The Soccer program consists of three levels: Varsity, J.V. and Freshman. Generally we have about 70 participants each year among the three teams, most of whom compete at the top levels of youth soccer in this country. Soccer competes in the fall season, with pre-season starting in August and the culmination of the state tournament taking place in early November. Home games and training sessions are held at our newly expanded Kelly Athletic Complex on Prospect Avenue.

The coaches of the Varsity, J.V. and Freshman teams are teachers at The Prep. That enables the staff to keep track of The Prep's student-athletes on and off the field and in and out of the classroom, and make their overall adjustment to The Prep that much smoother. All levels of the program play in the American Division of the Super Essex Conference (SEC). In addition to conference play, SHP Soccer participates in the Essex County Tournament, the State Non-Public A Tournament and the Delbarton Tournament (representing New Jersey against top-flight out of state competition).

The 2016 squad posted a record of 19-2-3 and won the Non-Public A North Title, SEC American Division, and were ECT Finalists. In addition to its on field success, the Seton Hall Prep Varsity Soccer Team was a recipient of the NSCAA Team Academic Award based on it 3.94 team GPA in 2015.
