Tryouts for the 2023 Baltimore Celtic Soccer Club season are complete. Make sure to follow Baltimore Celtic on Facebook for the latest updates on next year’s tryout dates, times and locations. 

The Players

Each player selected will be the building block of a TEAM.  The young person, who chooses Baltimore Celtic, will already possess the desire to be an elite player with some level of self-motivation and self-discipline. It is the responsibility of the Baltimore Celtic coaching staff to bring the best out of these players; to develop their technical skills and their character; and to create an environment in which these players grow as individuals, as teammates, and as human beings.

Each Player Is Expected To:

  • Put in the work
  • Arrive on time for meetings, practices, and games
  • Complete the required off-field assignments
  • Set individual goals and put in individual work on the player’s own time to achieve those goals
  • Communicate effectively with coaches
  • Communicate effectively with teammates
  • Ask for guidance when necessary
  • Be an active member of the Club and their team
  • Be a leader

Criteria for Selection of Team Members:

Primary considerations: Motivation; Selflessness; Competitiveness; Humility; Respect; Commitment; and Discipline.

Secondary considerations: Athleticism; Quickness; Intelligence; Awareness; Technical Ability; and Coachability.

I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.” – Charles Swindoll

Passion, Energy, Execution, Personal Accountability

Everything we do starts with a passion for the game and a yearning to compete.  We start every session with a positive attitude; accept that our attitude is a decision; and make no excuses for negativity.  We also understand that proper preparation leads to execution.  We train as we play and play as we train.  We expect to out-work every opponent in every game; play intelligently; and execute efficiently. In order to achieve success, on and off the field, we must care more about TEAM than about self.  The attitudes and choices made by any individual member reflect on his or her teammates, coaches, and the Celtic organization as a whole.
