Club Training: We take great pride in providing one of the top coaching staffs in Illinois. We could talk about the licensure of the staff and where they played, but everyone talks about that. You can check out their qualifications on the Staff page. Our staff share a common purpose to provide the best learning environment for all players to develop into intelligent, respectful, and competitive young players. Our player-centered approach allows all staff to produce fantastic young people.

Holistic Development: We believe that Celtic SC's responsibility is to develop soccer players and good young people. We pay attention to how children learn and outline soccer training curriculums that reflect the learning curve of young people. Our belief is that children can start learning simple decision making at early ages and we encourage this development along with building their foundation of technical skills. 

Celtic Tradition: We are one of the oldest soccer clubs in the state of Illinois. We have been producing players and great people in the community for 50 years.

2018/19 Tryout Process

  • REGISTER FOR TRYOUTS: All interested players must register for tryouts according to their birth year. All registration can be done completed by clicking HERE.

 

  • IN PERSON CHECK-IN: Players must check-in 20-30 minutes before their scheduled tryout. Players will receive any final directions about their tryout and receive their tryout shirt as well. Any player who has not completed online registration must complete an on-site registration with their parent or legal guardian.

 

  • CELTIC SC EVALUATION: Each player is assisted through tryouts by the Celtic SC Professional Staff. Players are evaluated through the use of small-sided games. Current Celtic SC players are evaluated at tryouts, but also evaluated through the previous year. Our staff makes all decisions regarding player placement.

 

  • CELTIC SC TEAM FORMATION: Celtic SC Staff meet every night after tryouts to go through tryout evaluations. Each tryout player is evaluated by staff members (current tryout evaluation staff and previous team staff) and then reviewed at the post tryout meetings. Each evaluating coach gives their opinion on each player followed by evaluation by their previous team staff.

 

  • CELTIC SC TRYOUT COMMUNICATION: Emails will be sent to all players within 72 hours of the age group's last tryout date. Parents and players will have 24 hours to ACCEPT or DECLINE their placement with Celtic SC. Rosters will be sent out once they are finalized. Coaching staff will be announced once all teams have been finalized.
