2019 Fall practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning August 27th at Celtic Park from 5-6 PM. 

2019-2020 Winter practices will be on Tuesdays beginning December 3rd at Falcon Park from 5-6pm.

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 2012-2014 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 2019-20 season and will oversee the Junior Celtic program. 

REGISTRATION: Registration for the 2019-20 Jr. Celtic "Winter Only" is now open.  All players born in 2012-2014 (01/01/2012 to 12/31/2014) boys & girls are encouraged to register. There is no tryout for this program. We accept players of all abilities!

Registration Information

2019-2020 Winter Registration is now open. Players can register for full year Jr. Celtic (August-June) or register by season. The best experience by far is to register for the year and start your journey as a Celtic SC player!
