Registration for the Fall, 2013 Season is now
Why so early?
We are currently planning to begin the Fall Season, August 24th!
1. We can end the CESA Rec Season earlier - October 19th.
2. If we have a Saturday cancellation, we move the season back a week.
- No need for a Sunday Make-up Schedule.
- AND still finish the season in October.
read ALL of the instructions below BEFORE
you begin your Registration.
To get to the Online Registration
Click on the "Member Login" tab at the top, left side of this page.
You MUST register your child in their "age-appropriate" Registration Category.
If you try to do otherwise, the
Registration will not be accepted.
THIS RULE APPLIES TO
Including those who have previously
registered in an Age Division other than their "age-appropriate" Registration Category.
If you wish to have your child placed in a different age
division or on a particular team, see the instructions for doing so in the section below titled, Team Placement Request
Proof of Age
Players who HAVE NOT played
with CESA before, MUST submit a photocopy of their birth certificate. Registration will not be considered complete until we have received your child's Birth Certificate. Players will not be
allowed to practice or play until a birth certificate has been received by the League Office. You can email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can mail a hard copy to CESA, P.O. Box 9556, Columbus, OH 43209.
Know Your Child's Soccer Age
Players are placed in Age Divisions, based on
their "soccer age". Your child's soccer age is based on the "soccer year", which is similar to the "school year". It runs from August 1st of one calendar year through July 31st of the
following calendar year. Your child's soccer age is his or her age AS OF August 1st of the current, soccer year.
For example, if your child is 7 years old, AS OF August 1st, 2013; their soccer age for the 2013-2014 soccer year is 7 and they would be
placed in an Under 8 Age Division.
During the ONLINE registration process, you will be asked to select a "Registration Category"
(Age Division). You MUST SELECT THE AGE-APPROPRIATE "Registration Category". So, if your child is 7 years old, as of August 1st, you MUST select an
Under 8 "Registration Category". The birth date range for each, respective Registration Category is included on this
page. If you wish to have your child placed in a different age
category, or on a particular team, please note the instructions in the section below, titled "Team Placement Request Information".
Team Placement Request
You MUST select one of the following options:
1. Did not play in the Spring.
2. Returning player from Spring, please place on SAME team.
3. Returning player from Spring, please place on NEW team.
Team Placement Request
Some parents may wish to have their child play in an age division OTHER THAN their
child's age-appropriate division. Parents may also want to request that their child be placed on a team with a certain friend, or a particular coach. Type your request in this box. The League makes
every effort to honor these requests.
If you are registering your daughter, you will need to determine if you want your daughter to
play in a Co-Rec Division or a Girls Division. We typically organize separate Girls Divisions at the Under 8 (U-07/U-8 Girls), Under 10 (U-09/U-10 Girls), and Under 12 (U-10/U11 Girls) Age
Divisions. The reason for combining more than one age of players is to have enough girls to form a sufficient number of teams to establish a division.
Parents are encouraged to consider placing their daughters in the girls divisions starting at the Under 8 Division (6 and 7 year olds). Of course, this decision depends on the individual
player. Some girls can and do compete well in the co-rec divisions. Others can, but prefer not to. Regardless, the one thing we hate to see happen is to NOT place them in a girls division
and then find that the player has lost interest in the game and quits because they didn't like playing with the boys.
ALL Players will receive a new jersey for the Fall Season. So, be prepared to select your
child's jersey size. When doing so, remember the same jersey will be worn for the Spring, 2014 Season.
Available sizes are as follows.
Youth Sizes: xsm (4-6) sm (6-8) med (10-12) lg (14-16)
Adult Sizes: sm (32-33) med (38-40) lg (42-44) xlg (46-48)
Method of Payment
you register ONLINE, you may choose to pay by Credit/Debit Card or by Check. If you plan to pay with either a credit or
debit card, have the card with you when you begin the registration process. If you choose to pay by check, please make the check payable to CESA and remit to P.O. Box 9556, Columbus, OH
