The Mini Celtic Program

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 2017- 2020 (must be 3 by end of each session). Each class is led by our Youth Program Director, Jen Jeschke.   Classes will meet one day per week for 45 minutes for a 6 week period.

Mini Celtic introduces soccer to our Pre-K players (3-5 years old) or beginner 6 year olds. 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! 

2023 Mini Celtic Program

Celtic SC will be offering the following classes 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 Director, Jen Jeschke. You can check out more information about Jen on our staff page.
