Celtics coaches are respected, experienced and have the ability and personality to motivate players to play with conatu et constantia (effort and determination), our club motto. They have extensive soccer and leadership experience, as well as strong emotional and educational beliefs for coaching that they pass onto each and every Celtics player through high level, technical training and commitment to the game. They have a wealth of soccer expertise, professional licenses and exceptional backgrounds.
All Celtics team coaches are certified through at least one of the following accredited organizations: United States Soccer Federation, Illinois State Soccer Association and National Soccer Coaches Association of America (in addition to overseas certifications). And, while we place emphasis on educational value, our coaches are also professional hardworking people with very strong soccer pedigrees. More importantly, they have what it takes to be considered the best coaches around, according to the Illinois Youth Soccer Association.
