Youth Soccer Changes
U.S. Youth Soccer has began several changes to their approach to Youth Soccer in the United States. These changes are focused around team formation and player development. The most sweeping of these changes are regarding small-sided games and youth age grouping. The current rules have been around for many years and the new changes will have to be addressed by parents and coaches.
For more information regarding rule changes and their impace in Nebraska, please see the Nebraska State Soccer page.
Columbus Soccer Club complies with the Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act. It is important for youth sports to understand the importance of the three key elements of this act:
- Removal of the injured athlete
- Proper clearance before allowing the player to return
Parents and Coaches should understand that these policies are designed to protect the player's long-term health and safety. See the Nebraska State Soccer website for more information.

Become a Coach
We have updated our coach application form for those interested in becoming new coaches with CSC. Our club features both paid and volunteer coaches with most being volunteers. If you have previous experience with coaching soccer we would like to hear from you. Many of our coaches started with the Columbus AYSO program and have children on their club teams (however this is not required). Initial requirements are minimal, however we do have some reasonable coach development requirements.
