We achieve to provide the players with a fun and energetic environment allowing 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. In addition, if your child excels and you and the child desire more Advanced Training they can join our Club Program, through either COSA Team Ohio or Capital City Futebol Club.

We have two seasons each year, Spring and Fall. Spring season begins in April thru May, while the Fall season forms in August, with games starting in early September and ending in late October. Our fields are at Cooper Park located off Cooper Road, between Westerville Road and West Schrock Road in the north side of Columbus, which is supplied by Columbus Recreation & Parks.

COSA has supported youth soccer with various tournaments, including The Jarosi/Willis Memorial Cup, COSA Fall Classic, as well as a High School Tournament to support the growth of our local highschools; as well as looking to the future by planning to establish a spring tournament. COSA offers various camps, coaching and referee clinics throughout the year, and remains active in surrounding communities, in addition to Columbus and Westerville.

We look 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!
