We are now accepting on-line registration for the spring 2014 season. If your child is returning, please indicate so on the registration and provide the name of the team and coach; as well as if you wish your child placed on the same team this spring. If your child has a friend or relative that wishes to play in the spring on the same team, please provide the child's name in the comments section so we can assign him/her to your child's team in the spring (if a spot is available). Also, after winter break, I will begin distributing paper applications to daycares, preschools, elementary schools, and other locations in Westerville and surrounding areas.
Given the late date for Easter weekend, we anticipate the season starting the first week of April; and there looks to be a need to have some games played on weeknights. Games will again be played at Cooper Park, in the same area as last fall.
In December, I will be sending emails out to the parents/coaches for each age group soliciting feedback about the fall and their expectations for the spring season. I will also be communicating with the Tiny Tots parents as to our plans for this spring.
Our goal is to make the Spring 2014 season a positive learning experience for the children, while they are having fun playing the game of soccer. Not only are we looking to the growth of our recreational program; we are also excited about the launching of a new soccer tournament, The WAM Spring Invitational Soccer Tournament.
For now, may all of you have a happy and safe Holiday season with your loved ones and family.
The Central Ohio Soccer Association (COSA) has proudly served Central Ohio and surrounding communities for over 30 years. 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 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!
