This event is open to Boys and Girls teams ages U9-U14.




The event is sure to be a special weekend with coaching staff from Celtic on hand delivering coaching sessions and workshops as well as offering advice and encouragement to all the players and coaches. For 2 lucky players, there’s also the chance of a lifetime to be selected to travel to Scotland for an all-expenses-paid trip to train at the official Celtic Academy.   One boy and one girl will be selected for this incredible opportunity to live the life of a top player.
