Friedman Signs with The Columbus Crew

Former CESA player, Ross Friedman, recently signed a "Home Grown" player contract with The Columbus Crew. Ross played at Bexley High School and then four years at Harvard. In between he was a member of the The Crew Academy Program.

The Friedmans are steeped in soccer tradition. His two sisters also played at CESA in their formative years. Ross' Father, Tod, was on The CESA Board of Trustees for several years and was instrumental in securing Value City Furniture as a Complex Sponsor. Ross' Mom, Sheri, somehow managed to keep all of them organized.

Congratulations to Ross and his family and our very best wishes for a long and successful career in MLS!

Ohio "Return To Play Law"

The Ohio Legislature has enacted a new law related to player concussions and head injuries titled, "Return to Play". The Law goes into effect April 26, 2013.

This is a rather far reaching law that includes requirements for Coaches and Referees to complete an Online Training Course on the subject. Players who are identified as displaying symptoms of a concussion or head injury may not "return to play" until a physician provides a written release. And more...

An information sheet regarding this law will be sent to all Fall Participants (Parent, Coaches, and Referees) following the release of Fall Roster.

To download a copy of this information sheet, click HERE.

Complete details regarding the law can be found on the Ohio Department of Health website by clicking on this link... www.healthyohioprogram.org/concussion.
