Canton Soccer Club Celtic Community

Content

Whether you are new to soccer or a returning player, these details are helpful for soccer players participating in our class offerings.


Dress to the weather. Generally, athletic shorts and shirt are staples. We typically play through rain unless it is heavy and consistent. The Canton Soccer Club takes thunder and lightning seriously by taking shelter and/or canceling classes. Communication is made through your Teamsnap account.


Cancelled classes: unless otherwise noted, The Canton Soccer Club does not offer make-up days.


Soccer equipment: shin-guards are strongly encouraged for Jr. Celts 5 and older. Soccer socks (which are longer athletic socks) are worn over the shin-guards to help hold in place. Cleats are highly encouraged for Jr. Celts 5 and older. Cleats are athletic shoes with small plastic prongs to grip the ground.


Bring a water bottle, pumped soccer ball and sunscreen. On hot days, please pack enough water for your soccer player. Independence Park pavilion has a water refilling station for soccer players. Pump your soccer player’s ball with enough air so that pressing your hand into it is minimal. An over pumped or under pumped ball is difficult to perform skill work with and in few occasions has caused injury. We advocate for appropriate sunscreen usage whenever possible.



Jr. Celts 3.4.5.6.7.8 use size #3 soccer ball

CAT 9 and older use size #4 soccer ball


T-shirts: The Canton Soccer Club works closely with Soccer World to provide all t-shirts. A great effort is made to offer t-shirts on the first day of class. T-shirts are given out on the field during your class to new soccer players.


Need equipment? Soccer World at 43711 Ford Road or any major sports store can provide any soccer gear


Location and arrival: Unless otherwise noted, all classes are held at Independence Park in the Programs Area (west of the pavilion). Independence Park: 1898 Denton Road - MAP

Arrive 10 minutes early to the first class to park, find the field and receive any instructions.


Staff: Programs, summer camps and clinics are overseen by Community Director, Jamie Scott. Jamie holds her USSF “B” License, National Youth Licence and a Masters in Business and Leadership Management.  Your child’s coach may be a Detroit City FC staff member, a high-level HS or Collegiate player that will run through the curriculum set by Jamie.


We do our best to keep coaches consistent from week to week. However, with coaches schedules and conflicts, often times, it is impossible to assign the same coach. We support rotating coaches as kids may learn differently through coaching styles. We typically have several newer coaches on staff. They are eager to learn and to work with your child.


What you can expect from the session: Curriculum is based on age appropriate players principles and will focus on technical skills, ball control and general game awareness aspects. Staff look to create a fun and upbeat environment. Our hope is players learn a new skill-set or soccer idea and are excited to return. We will foster various skill sets over the course of each series. Individual skill sets are foundation building blocks.


A typical session outlook: warm-up -- skill -- skill activity -- scrimmage


What we expect: Players to listen to instruction and be coachable. Players dressed with equipment and ready to play. Players to have a willingness to try to the best of their ability in order to get the most from the coaching information and class environment.


Other: There is no smoking or chewing at the field.

Juniors Programming includes U3 - U8. Each program focuses on building age related foundation skills while fostering a love for the game. Soccer sessions follow a researched curriculum. Staff offer extensive coaching experience, soccer playing background and player management skill-sets. You may or may not have the same coach each week based on their availability. Many of our staff members have their own soccer schedule.


You will receive a welcome email from the club approximately a week before the league starts with further information.  All outdoor sessions are held at Independence Park. Indoor sessions are held at High Velocity Sports on MI Ave.
