Soccer Skills Training for Soccer Players Ages 6 Through 9
Philosophy: The goals for the Celtic Juniors program are FUN, TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT and SPORTSMANSHIP. FUN comes first, because when children enjoy soccer, learning takes care of itself. TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT is vital, for without basic skills, players are limited in their athletic expression and their enjoyment of soccer is reduced. The Celtic Juniors aims to instill a solid technical base in each player. Soccer is a team sport, so it is crucial for players to absorb the basic elements of SPORTSMANSHIP, which includes teamwork, cooperation, and positive competition. Even if a player does not continue with soccer, these elements of SPORTSMANSHIP will serve them well in school, work, and life.
