The La Grange Celtics Juniors Program is a youth development soccer academy that provides fun, age-appropriate instruction to their youngest players (U4-U7). The winter program starts in November and is designed as a starting point in your child’s soccer development towards being successful in traveling soccer. The professional trainers from Celtics will provide age-appropriate technical, skill-based instruction as well as teaching game behaviors. The goal of Juniors is to create a fun and safe environment to learn the basic tools and skills of the game. This will aid in building confidence, self-esteem, and a love and passion for the game.

Your aspiring soccer star will…

  • Learn basic technical skills
  • Learn fundamental skills such as dribbling, shooting and passing
  • Develop an understanding of the physical and mental aspects of the game
  • Enjoy a social and competitive atmosphere that is fun and productive
  • Be coached by a professional who is comfortable interacting with and conveying knowledge to our youngest Celtics
  • Receive a high coach-to-player ratio, based on the belief that younger players need more individual attention
  • Develop in a stress-free and focused environment to help nurture and develop these young players
  • Experience an emphasis on skill development that focuses on long-term benefits, rather than short-term gain
  • Learn about sportsmanship, respect for oneself, respect for others and respect for the game
