From time to time, we get requests to advertise in the FLASH. Our policy is that we don't allow outside agencies--with the exceptions of Catholic high schools and parish sponsored organizations--to advertise in the FLASH. We've decided that it might be useful to our parents to suspend that policy for an issue or two during the year. What follows is our first ever FLASH advertising edition. I certainly hope it's helpful to you. Please send any feedback you might have to Lisa Mansoori.

Have a great Easter!

Seattle Celtic Soccer Club


Our summer team camp schedule is published HERE. These camps give teams a chance to gel ahead of the Fall season and have proven very popular over the years. We typically schedule teams from the same age group on the same week so that they can scrimmage each other at the end of each day and the extended time these camps allow a coach to work with their team, always proves beneficial for the months ahead.

We also have a number of different types of camps over the summer months: Soccer/Swim Camp, Technical Skills Camps, Shooting/Finishing Camps, Goalkeeper Camps, Elite Player Camp, Celtic Óg Camp (3-5 year olds)

For more information on what each camp entails, including the typical daily breakdown of activities click HERE
