Mini Celtic Program

Palatine Celtic is proud to present their newest program, Mini Celtic. The program is open to all boys and girls born in 2015 - 2018 (have to be 3 by end of each session). Each class is led by our Youth Program Coordinator, Jen Jeschke. Classes will meet one day per week for 45 minutes for a 5 week period.  

Mini Celtic introduces soccer to our Pre-K players (3-5 years old). We use game-based activities that kids are familiar with to introduce the concepts of dribbling, passing, and shooting. Another focus is developing the physical literacy of our players- running, jumping, balance, coordination, and agility. As we try to develop our players from a holistic model, we also teach cooperation, sharing, and teamwork in small-sided games that players enjoy! 

2020 Fall Mini Celtic Program Offerings

Celtic SC will be offering the following classes this spring for boys and girls aged 3-5 years old. All classes are coed and limited based on staffing. Players must be 3 years old before the end of each session. Each class is led by our Youth Program Coordinator, Jen Jeschke. You can check out more information about Jen on our staff page. Please see below for our class offerings for Fall 2020.
