Junior Celtic Program

2019-2020 Junior Celtic Information

The Jr. Celtic program has gone through many changes in the last 2 years. These changes have been made in order to suit our young players and parents. If you are looking for a program for your 5,6, or 7 year old, there is no better program in the Northwest suburbs.

2019 Spring Information

The program also includes:

  • Every training session is led by professionally licensed staff coach
  • Size 1 skill
  • New Balance Junior Celtic Uniform Kit (included in cost)
  • Open training policy with Celtic (option to train with our U8 Academy if parents choose to do extra)

Training this Spring is on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning April 9th at Celtic Park from 5-6 PM. 

Our program will feature practices led by a quality, licensed staff coach from Celtic. The Junior Celtic program will follow a unique Celtic curriculum to develop and prepare our players the best way we know how. It will follow the same principles and philosophy as our travel program does currently. If you are looking for a program that will improve players in every session, Celtic is the place to be for young players.

GOAL: The objective of the Jr. Celtic program is to prepare players born in 2011-2013 for the travel program.  We believe in a holistic player centered approach where players are challenged to learn their skills while playing in game situations. 

STAFF: Coach Jen Jeschke will lead the Jr. Celtic program for the 2018-19 season and will oversee the Spring Junior Celtic program. 

REGISTRATION: Registration for the 2019 Spring program is still open. All players born in 2011-2013 (01/01/2011 to 12/31/2013) boys & girls are encouraged to register. The program will be limited to 24 players for the 2018-19 season.
