Our U6 division makes its debut in Spring 2018. Palatine Celtic Soccer Club is committed to being the best soccer program around by developing the smartest and most skilled soccer players in the area. Our U6 House program is intended to provide young players the chance to find out just how much FUN it is to play soccer in an organized environment and also to learn the essential soccer skills at a very early age.
The primary focus is for our young players to become comfortable playing a game that uses their feet and instead of their hands! It is also intentionally player focused where we strongly encourage young players to take chances individually that require skills on the field but also allow them to discover the importance of being a part of a team.
All teams will be coaches by a parent volunteer. This can be a tough job for any parent wishing to coach at these ages, but Palatine Celtic will be there to assist in every way we can. All volunteer coaches will have access to a database of age appropriate FUN small-sided games that teach essential soccer skills. The most important aspect of this age is that players have a ball at their feet as often as possible and they are having fun.
Objective: Provide a player-centered league open to kindergarten thru first grade boys and girls to introduce the game of soccer to player in the Palatine community.
Who: Open to boys and girls born between 9/1/2011 to 8/31/2013. This is a coed league.
When: Games will begin on Saturday, April 28. All U6 games will be primarily on Saturdays in the spring 2018.
What: Coed teams will play 3v3 without goalkeepers at Gbur Park. All teams will do a 20 minute practice and then they will play against another team. Games will be four 9 minute quarters. Our volunteer coaches are encouraged to interact with the players on the field (make sure they're going in the right direction and ball stays in play) and serve as the referees for the games.
Cost: $125 per player. Players will receive a green jersey and silver jersey and a pair of black socks. All players should wear black shorts with their uniform on the weekend.
