What is the Arch Program?

The Arch Program began in Fall 2017. The thought behind the Arch program was to provide a program that utilized professional training just like the travel program for all players from U8-U12 (U14 being offered in Fall 2018). It is a supplemental training program for our all players that want professional training to improve their soccer skills. 

All sessions are run by a Palatine Celtic staff member who are licensed by the US Soccer Federation or the United Soccer Coaches Association. Our program is patterned after the same philosophy as our Celtic travel program who has produced some top players in the area. Our program will focus on passing, receiving, shooting, and dribbling. These skills are the foundation of soccer and the Arch program will make you a better soccer player. 

The Arch program is divided into seasons.

  • Fall featuring a U8-U10 session and U12-U14 session
  • Winter I featuring a U8-U10 session and U12-U14 session
  • Winter II featuring a U8-U10 session and U12-U14 session
  • Spring featuring a U8-U10 session and U12-U14 session
  • Summer featuring all the groups 

Questions regarding the Arch Program can be directed to JJ Ruane, Director of Soccer Operations
