Nevada Celtic Futbol Academy
Derived from our first team manager at Celtic FC, Neil Lennon, we play possession style of soccer building up out of the back. As we build out of the back our goal is to get in behind the opposing team whether that be with combination play or with the play going into our wide players to create crosses in behind the defense ultimately scoring a goal. We encourage our teams to be confident and take risks by playing negative balls, recycling the ball to our goalkeeper and moving the ball around the defensive third of the field allowing us to control the tempo and dictate the game. Our objective is to draw opposing teams into our half creating space in the offensive half to attack. Although our style of play is very structured and organized preparing players to understand the roles of each position with an emphasis on keeping possession with a purpose, we constantly encourage our players to be brave and confident on the ball. Technique, creativity, confidence and imagination are the most important aspects in the development of a young soccer player.
