Junior Celtic Information

Players can register as a full year player (Aug-May) or register by season (fall, winter or spring). The Jr. Celtic program runs through the winter months to keep the players busy and their skills sharp. If you are looking for a program for your 6, 7 or 8 year old, there is no better program in the Northwest suburbs. The best experience by far is to register for the year and start your journey as a Celtic SC player!

The Jr. Celtic program will run for 8 weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning April 6th at Celtic Park from 5-6 PM.  Plan to meet coach Jen on the grass field adjacent across the parking lot from the the turf fields. League games will be played Saturday or Sunday afternoons during the outdoor season.
