About C.S.O. Recreational Soccer

CSO is proud to offer recreational soccer to the youth in our community and areas beyond. Here at CSO we truly believe that recreational soccer is the foundation that any successful program is built upon. The staff at CSO strives daily to provide an environment that enhances a player’s understanding of the game, provides a safe environment, and most importantly allows for each and every player to have fun taking part in the game we all love.

Purpose: The Recreational Level is the entry playing level for boys and girls Under 4 through Under 19 Coed teams. 

Objectives: Its registered teams are formed for the express purposes of teaching the necessary playing abilities and skills of The Game; maximum game and practice participation of each rostered player; physical and mental fitness; and the enjoyment of The Game. Recreational teams are not formed to play competitive level soccer. All programs in the Under 4, Under 5, Under 6 shall play 3 on 3 formats. Under 7 and Under 8 age groups shall play 4 on 4 formats. Single year age divisions shall be used whenever possible. Boys and girls programs should be separated though under special circumstances girls may be allowed to play in the boys division. 


Recreational Soccer Rules and Additional Information

All matches will be played according to USYS Small Sided Soccer Rules. Age groups below u6 will follow u6 rules.

Heading and Build Out

Practices schedules are determined after teams have been formed. A practice schedule is made by the head coach of each team. CSO does not determine or assign practice times. All players must wear appropriate soccer gear for training including shin guards and cleats. All players must bring their own water and ball to practice. Teams U6 and below typically practice one time per week. Teams U8 and above typically practice two times per week.

Any special requests must be made in writing at the time of registration.  Additional information and requests may only be made on the registration form.   CSO will not field calls or e-mails with special requests after registration is complete. 
Please note: absolutely no player will be moved after rosters have been completed.
