Our 2018-19 Junior Celtic program will begin the week of August 12. Practice times and days will be available in July. Registration for Jr. Celtic is now ongoing.
Our program will feature practices led by a quality, licensed staff coach from Celtic. The Junior Celtic program will follow a unique Celtic curriculum to develop and prepare our players the best way we know how. It will follow the same principles and philosophy as our travel program does currently. If you are looking for a program that will improve players in every session, Celtic is the place to be for young players.
GOAL: The objective of the Jr. Celtic program is to prepare players born in 2011 or 2012 for the travel program. We believe in a holistic player centered approach where players are challenged to learn their skills while playing in game situations.
STAFF: Coach Jen Jeschke will lead the Jr. Celtic program for the 2018-19 season. The program is overseen by our Director of Soccer Operations, JJ Ruane. Questions about the program should be directed to him.
REGISTRATION: Registration for the 2018-19 program is now open. All players born in 2011-2013 (01/01/2011 to 12/31/2013) boys & girls are encouraged to register. The program will be limited to 24 players for the 2018-19 season. Visit the registration link here.
