Team Formation Changes
On July, 2016 the CSC Board voted and approved the following addition to our team formation rules.
- All new teams starting the Fall 2016 season will follow the National and State approved age specific guidelines for team formations. Newly formed teams will be birth year specific unless approved to deviate by the CSC Board. Meaning, a new team consisting of 2009 players cannot have a player born in 2010 without the approval of the CSC Board.
- New players joining an existing team must play in their birth year specific team unless approved by the CSC Board. Meaning, a current team of 2006 players cannot add a new 2005 player without approval from the CSC Board.
- Guest and Secondary players are allowed to play for different birth year teams providing approval by both Head Coaches. Only the Head coaches are allowed to discuss adding a secondary or guest player. Meaning, a 2007 player can play as a guest player for a 2006 team IF discussed and approved by BOTH Head Coaches.
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.
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.

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.
