Florida Celtic SC Academy Program


The Florida Celtic SC Academy Program focuses primarily on individual skill development and prepares players for Club Soccer in later years. Scores are not recorded; standings are not maintained. All players generally play the same amount of time in each game as the emphasis of Academy is focused on the growth of the individual player, more so than the net result of the games.
