2013-14 Season Reminder

Just a reminder to all coaches... the 2013-14 season has now begun. You will have to register your teams with Nebraska State Soccer for upcoming leagues and tournament play. The new team registration form can be downloaded from our site and saved on your computer. When you complete your team registration you can save the form with data on your computer. This way you only have to change information that has changed since your last registration when you register your team each year. Once your form has been completed you can e-mail the registration to Club Registrar Linda Staroscik.

Technical Stuff

The club forms are Adobe pdf files designed to work with the free Adobe Reader. Many browsers have a built in pdf reader that does not allow you to complete the form within your browser. The form needs to be opened in Adobe Reader to complete the form and save the data. To do this, follow the steps provided.

  1. Right click on this link and choose the option Save Link As... and save the file to a location that you can find it again (Desktop or Documents/My Documents) is a good choice.
  2. Once the file is downloaded, you should be able to go to the location where it is downloaded and open the file in Adobe Reader (just double click on the file). If the document doesn't open in Adobe Reader you may not have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. If this is the case it can be downloaded from the Adobe Website.
  3. Once your form is opened in Adobe Reader, you can fill out the fields provided with the information for your team and players. When you are done from the menu in Adobe Reader choose File and then Save As... and you can choose a name you want to call the completed form. Once you have saved the file if your e-mail program is properly configured you can click on the button at the top of the page that reads Submit to Club Registrar. This will e-mail the form to Linda if it doesn't work properly you can manually attach the form to an e-mail and send it to her. There is a process that must accompany the form submittal. Please review the Instructions for Team Registration.

Information on Club Team Registration

Linda Staroscik, the Club Registrar for the Columbus Soccer Club has created a document describing the process necessary to register your team with the Columbus Soccer Club. Please review this document prior to submitting your team's registration. This is only for CSC teams and is not related to our upcoming tournament.

All new teams must be approved at the monthly Club Board meeting. Please contact Club President This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are interested in forming a new team. New coaches should complete a CSC Coaching Application form prior to this meeting.

Using Club Forms

Many of the forms used by our Club are fillable Adobe Acrobat files (pdf). Recent changes in many web browsers does not allow the forms to be filled out within the browser and may actually error out with a message regarding unsafe browser plugins. In order to properly fill out and save the forms, you should right click on the form link and select the option to "Save Link As...". You will then be prompted with a file name and location where you want to save the form. Choose a location and file name that works for your purposes.

Once the file is downloaded you can open the form with Adobe Reader. Within Adobe Reader you can fill out the fields of the form and then save your information. This may be useful when completing the form again (for instance the CSC Registration Form for teams). You can save your team roster and use the same saved roster for future registrations and only change that information which needs to be changed. The team registration form also has a button that will e-mail the completed roster to the Club Registrar as long as your e-mail client on your computer is configured properly (check your sent items to ensure that it was sent). If you have problems with the send button you can just save the file and e-mail your completed roster as an attachment.

The medical release form can be saved and then e-mailed to your parents for completion. This form can also be saved by the parents for future reference.

Please contact club representatives or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any problems with CSC Club forms.

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.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Club President Kay Arlt or our Head Coach Rex Kumpf.
