We would like to introduce our newest addition to our Palatine Celtic staff (in another role, but not technically new to our staff!) - John Miller will be starting as our House Director of Coaching with the Spring 2016 season! We are excited to develop this role for our house teams, coaches and players, and look forward to the possibilities that come with him joining us in this capacity. He will focus on the development and training for our house teams through education of our volunteer coaches, player clinics for our house players, and general oversight of the House program as a whole.

Recently U. S. Soccer has recommended to its youth members to eliminate the skill of heading the ball in training sessions and matches for children 10-years-old and younger. Children 11 to 13-years old may head the ball in a match, but are limited in how often the skill can be practiced in a training session. US Youth Soccer will follow that recommendation. The recommendation from U. S. Soccer is a part of a larger player safety campaign, called Recognize to Recover (http://www.ussoccer.com/about/recognize-to-recover). I urge all coaches to review all of the information available there.
|Palatine Celtic Soccer Club|
The Palatine Celtic Soccer Club was founded in 1968 by Bill Hughes and Jimmy Kinsella, a transplanted Scotsman. Together, they were the first people in Palatine to organize local children into teams to play the game of soccer. Jimmy named the Club after his home club, Glasgow Celtic.
The Palatine Celtic Soccer Club is affiliated with the Palatine Park District and provides youth soccer programs for girls and boys ages 6-18. Many of the players on the William Fremd and Palatine High School varsity soccer teams have, at one time or another, played either Recreational and/or Travel soccer under the Celtic banner.
Palatine Celtic Soccer is also Home to The Celtic Cup Labor Day Tournament. Featuring over 400 teams.
