Do I need to send a copy of my child's birth certificate?
No. We are no longer requiring a birth certificate to register new players in the Celtic house league.

When will my child's team practice and have games?
Practice days/times are set by the coaches. Since all of our coaches are volunteers, the club gives them flexibility with their practice schedules. Generally coaches will practice Monday\Wednesday or Tuesday\Thursday, but some will have their own schedule based on their availability.

Games days are Saturday for the Girls starting at 9:00am and Sunday for the Boys starting at noon.

I do not live in the Palatine Park District boundaries, can I still register?
Yes! We welcome residents from our neighboring communities to play for Celtic SC. We have a set fee for all.

My child wants to play both fall and spring seasons and I can't find where to register for spring.
Currently we have separate registration times for fall and spring.  We have moved to flat fall rate (all discounts applied per season) and we will have the same for spring.

Who will be my child's coach?
Celtic SC house league relies solely on volunteer coaches to coach our house teams. If you are interested in volunteering to coach a house team in the fall or spring season, please register.

What equipment will my child need to play Celtic Soccer in the fall?
All players will be provided a (2) game jerseys and socks for the season.  You will need to provide shin guards, black shorts, soccer cleats (baseball cleats are not allowed) and a soccer ball - size 4 for U8-U12 divisions, size 5 for U14-U18.

My child has never played soccer before, can they still join the league?
Yes. The Celtic house league is a developmental league and is open to all levels of skill.  We will distribute new players amongst teams so that they can learn from their peers as they go.  

How are players placed on teams for the season?
Our volunteer directors spend time assembling team rosters based on current player evaluations from previous coaches.  New players are asked to attend a player rating night in the summer to have their skill level assessed so they can be adequately placed on a team, while maintaining a balance of skill levels across the division. Teams are equally divided to balance high level players with new players to provide the best season experience for all players in the league. 

What type of uniform will my player wear?
We are excited to provide each player with athletic, dry wick jerseys. Our house uniforms will now provide a more consistent look across the club.  Players will need to provide black shorts and equipment such as shin guards and soccer cleats.  The league will also provide black or green soccer socks for each player.
