Florida Celtic and West Florida Flames announce DA Strategic Player Alliance

Next season Florida Celtic will be offering a strategic alliance that aims to increase player accessibility to the US Development Academy program to the top players in our Club. The alliance will affect all competitive players u12 and older. All players registered with Florida Celtic have the opportunity to become “part time” players with the West Florida Flames US Development Academy team. Part-time players can be dual rostered with Florida Celtic as well as West Florida Flames Development Academy. Part-time players are eligible to play in up to 12 DA games per season.

DOC Jonny Burns has said “ We are very happy to get this agreement over the line, Our club has enjoyed much success over the past several years but we must continue to develop our talented players and the pathways which can be afforded to them. We look forward to this partnership benefitting both clubs and continuing to showcase our fantastic talent that we have at Florida Celtic.”

West Florida Flames DOC Jorge Zavala has said “ I am excited to share our philosophy, methodology and player development model with leaders that share a common goal toward player development. The alliance is the first step to offering vast opportunities to players in our communities.”
