Welcome to our web-site.    The period of early registration has closed.   The current fee schedule is $80.00 for Under 6; and all other divisions are closed.   If your child is a 5 year old, she/he can be registered as an Under 6 if you choose.   The Under 6's play 4v4 rather than 3v3, and a referee oversees the game.

Spring season begins the weekend of April 7/8, as Easter is on April 1.    

UNDER 5 thru 8/9:   For Under 5 thru Under 9, the teams are coached by volunteers (mostly parents or other family members).  When registering your child, please indicate whether or not she/he is returning; and if so, the name of the team and its coach.   Returning players will be assigned to their prior team unless a change of coach is indicated.  Teams play eight games for the season, with the U5 thru U7 playing six 6-minute periods.   The U8/9 teams will play two 20-minute halves with six field players and a goalie/keeper on the field.

Players may return to the same age group as in the fall of 2017.   If you register your child for Under 5, she/he may play that division, even though she/he will turn age 6 in 2018.  The other option would be to move her/him up to the next level, then select the Under 6 division rather than Under 5.

The U5, U6 and U7 earliest games will begin at 8:30 on Saturdays, with the last game starting at 11:30 am.   Under 5 games has 3 players per side on the field; Under 6 has 4 players per side; and Under 7 has 5 players per side.   Each players is to play in three 6-minute periods before a player can play in a fourth period.  Substitution is at the end of the 6-minute periods, unless a player is injured and needs to be withdrawn from the field.

    About Us

    The Central Ohio Soccer Association (COSA) has proudly served Central Ohio and surrounding communities since the spring of 1979. We are a member of the Ohio South Youth Soccer Association, as well as being affiliated with the US Soccer Federation and US Youth Soccer.

    We strive to provide players with a fun and energetic environment which allows them to learn the basics of soccer. We have a beginners instructional program (i.e. Tiny Tots) for 3 and 4 year olds; as well as youth recreational leagues for ages five through nine.

    There are two seasons each year, with spring season beginning in early April and ending around Memorial Day; and the Fall season will begin in August with play running into November.

    COSA has supported youth soccer with various tournaments in the past, but with the changes in travel/select soccer, it has been decided to no longer host a youth soccer tournament. The main objective remains the same; that being, the support of each child's growth in the sport of soccer while having a fun and safe environment to learn and develop her/his individual and team soccer skills. COSA is preparing to host clinics for those playing in the Under 8/9 Academy division. As we near the start of the season, more info will be released as to dates and times for the clinics.

    We are looking forward to you and your family joining our organization, so as to provide your children with a great environment to learn about the sport of soccer; and most importantly - Have Fun!

    Inclement Weather Policy
    Games will be canceled if fields are deemed to be in poor condition or if there is thunder/lightning in the area. Please remember, we will play soccer in the rain.

    Cancellations will be posted on our web site and a message will be emailed to all participants. Please make sure you check these before showing up to the games. All cancellations will be posted by 4:00 p.m. when possible during the week, by 7:30 a.m. for Saturday games and 1p.m. for Sunday Games.

    Once on-site - officials/referees will make a game time decision at the fields depending on the weather. In case of lightning, all participants will be sent to their coaches and parents so all can seek shelter. After 30 minutes from the last thunder or lightning, the referee/official will determine if the game can be restarted or if it will be called due to lightning. The official/referee will continue to monitor remaining games on a case by case basis. Therefore, please make sure you show up to play at your scheduled time. Thank you.
