What is the Arch Program?

The Arch Program began in Fall 2017. The thought behind the Arch program was to provide a program that utilized professional training just like the travel program for all players in the community from U8-U12. It is a supplemental training program for our house players that want similar training that the travel player gets at Celtic without the commitment level. 

All sessions are run by Palatine Celtic staff who are licensed by the US Soccer Federation or the United Soccer Coaches Association. We bring the same curriculum and training habits from the Celtic travel side to the Arch program. Players will learn how to pass and receive the ball, how to shoot the ball correctly, and grow their confidence in beating players 1v1 with moves they learn in the Arch program.

The Arch program is divided into seasons.

  • Fall featuring a U8, U10, and U12 session
  • Winter I featuring a U8, U10, and U12 session
  • Winter II featuring a U8, U10, and U12 session
  • Spring featuring a U8, U10, and U12 session
  • Summer featuring all the groups
