Recreational League Structure Information
OSA has developed this information sheet to help you understand the leagues offered to our members, so that your teams and players can participate in the right level and program. Please refer to the league policies for more information.
In-House (Closed) Recreational League
The Recreational Program is a developmental soccer program for all youth players. Assigning players to recreational team rosters on the basis of talent by the use of tryouts, invitations, recruiting, or similar processes is prohibited. Recreational players may not be “cut” from a team. Clubs will form their own teams, rosters and scheduling. Closed leagues may consist of another club or clubs interplaying if registration numbers require additional teams to form a league.
Cost: Only player registration required.
Registration: Player and team registration is governed by the club in GotSport.
Scheduling: Handled internally by the Club(s).
Traveling (Open) Recreational League
Traveling recreational teams in U9-U19 age groups are formed by clubs according to the existing OSA Team Formation Policy (See Recreational League Policies & Procedures). Recreational teams from clubs in the same area will be scheduled by OSA for fall and spring competition.
Cost: No Entry Fee, included in Registration
Registration: Player and team registration is governed by the club in GotSoccer.
Scheduling: OSA Admin and/or local coordinator will schedule.
Travel During Severe Weather
The safety of our members is always our top priority at OSA. Due to the potential for severe weather in every season, please check with the complex where you are scheduled to play to ensure it is open. If it is not safe to travel please contact your opponent as early as possible for information and site situation. Clubs should consider contacting opponents who are traveling to forewarn them of complex closures or time/field changes due to severe weather conditions. Referee assignors should be informed of any changes to schedules due to severe weather conditions.
