Celtic Óg Micro Academy (Age 5)

Celtic Óg (Young Celtic in Irish) refers to our Seattle Celtic Micro Academy which caters to players aged 5.

 

The aim of the Micro Academy is to provide professional coaching to beginner players in the hope of sparking a life-long love for the game of soccer.  Throughout the year, we offer six week programs which serve as an introduction to Seattle Celtic for young players who wish to eventually join our Development Teams. 

 

Boys and girls of all abilities are invited to attend these sessions which will be led by Seattle Celtic's Micro Academy Director James 'Jimmy' Toner.

Each Micro Academy Program will have a fun weekly theme to help keep the children motivated and excited to play. These fun games will help introduce soccer fundamentals such as ball control, passing, dribbling and teamwork. 

 

If you have any questions about our Celtic Óg (pronounced like the 'Og' in the word 'Ogre') or suggestions on how to spread the word, please contact us at og@seattleceltic.com.

**Important note -- while we have been successful in running "socially distanced" soccer sessions for the U7 age group and upwards we do not think it will be possible to ensure at least 6ft of distance between players at all times for the Micro Academy sessions. The coaches will aim to keep the players constantly moving to avoid congregating or clumps of kids and there will still be sanitizing measures in place. We just want everyone to be aware that while we will do all we can to avoid kids being in close contact for extended periods, there is a certain amount of inevitability that players this young will have a tough time maintaining 6ft of distance from others at all times.

 

Testimonials

Celtic Og has been a fun ride for Ike and I. I have been impressed with Coach Phil as he managed to have my 4-year-old's attention and enthusiasm from the beginning to the end of every session. Coach Phil really knows how to motivate little ones in a fun but structured way, and teach them new skills in the process!

 

Carla van der Ven 

Celtic Óg was such a great experience for my son, Sammy. Coach Phil has a great presence and chemistry with the kids - he knows how to engage with them so they are able build upon the skills they already have while having a full and fun soccer experience. I'm thrilled to see the love of the sport a priority here. Can't wait for the next session!
