Developmental League & Academy
Working to develop youth with a love of soccer.
The Columbus Soccer Club is hosting a Spring Developmental Soccer League open to kids born in 2008 through 2015. This league will promote the fun nature of soccer while working on fundamentals and playing small-sided games each week.
The league will meet on Saturday mornings April 2nd through 30th at Wilderness Park Soccer Complex.
This league is open to everyone. You do not have to be a member of the soccer club to participate. Cost is $40 per player and includes a T-shirt for each participant. Shin guards and shoes are required to participate. Soccer shoes are recommended, but not required (no toe cleats).
A few important reminders for this season:
1) Players must wear shin guards and shoes of some sort each week to participate. Cleats are not required, but are recommended (no toe cleats).
2) Each player should bring their own soccer ball and water bottle. Please label both with your name.
3) Remove all jewelry before you leave home.
4) Dress appropriately for the weather. It’s better to bring an extra layer and not need it than to wish you had it!
5) Please arrive only a few minutes early and be at your field ready to play by your scheduled start time.
We will be using Fields 1, 5, and 8 at Wilderness Park Soccer Complex for this program (schedule in next post). Field 1 is the field furthest south (closest to the entrance), Field 5 is alongside the concession stand, and Field 8 is the field furthest north. All three fields are immediately next to the parking lot, so please drive slowly and carefully when dropping off and picking up your kids!
Please wear your league shirts every week to the developmental program! While not required to participate, this will make organizing for small-sided games much easier. Thanks to Goals & Guns Apparel Co. in Columbus for getting these shirts printed and ready to go for us!
Players have been assigned to the same field and start time for all five weeks of this program:
