Mission Statement

Kilcock Celtic Football Club aims to provide a happy and safe environment where children of all abilities can learn to play and love football.
We undertake to treat each child equally and to encourage fair play, team spirit and friendship.
Football is a competitive sport but our Club training sessions are open to all children regardless of their ability, gender, colour, creed or religion.
We pledge to deal with any complaints or problems speedily and will try our best to resolve all situations, but the interest of our junior members will be foremost in our minds.
We ask for all adults involved with the Club as Managers, Coaches, Parents or Committee Members to do their bit to encourage fair play as well as commitment.

AIM and Objectives
The aim of our development plan is to provide a first class soccer football Club for young people, their parents and all interested in sport in Kilcock and surrounding areas through the provision of high quality coaching, an enjoyable Club atmosphere and a wide range of activities and opportunities for all.
