Birth Year And Age Division

One of the most frequently asked questions from parents is "what age division should my child play at?"

The Soccer season runs each year from August 1st through July 31st on the following year. The age that your child will play in is based on how old they are on July 31st. For instance, if your child is eight (8) years old on July 31st their next season will be played at the U9 Age division (they are under nine years old). Your child could play at older divisions like U10, however that is usually discouraged. The Chart below will give guidance for you if you need it.

Columbus Soccer Club Tryout Policies and Procedure

Dear Parents and Players:

Welcome to the Columbus Soccer Club competitive youth soccer program. Our club has a policy of open tryouts for teams in the U-11 and older age groups. Please keep in mind that “club” or “select” soccer represents a significant increase in the commitment required by players, and parents. Our goal is to have all of the members of the club experience the enjoyment and developmental benefits that are gained by mastering skills and habits and by participating at the highest level of competition. CSC members acquire excellent physical conditioning, refine their technical skills, learn to understand the tactics involved in soccer, establish new and lasting friendships, and acquire character building habits such as teamwork, sportsmanship, commitment, discipline, and the pursuit of excellence. Every year players make the move from recreational soccer to club soccer, and many achieve great success. Your decision to participate in a tryout for a CSC team is the first step.
