Welcome to the Central Ohio Soccer Association!

About Us

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!

The U5 thru U7 fields at Cooper Park are presently closed for the summer. The fields for U9/10 are open for Capital City Futebol Club and for clinics hosted by CCFC or COSA.
