Team Placement Requests
Parents can request that siblings be on the same team. Younger siblings may play up – 1 age group only; older age group players cannot play down. You must indicate this on both player registrations; Final approval at the discretion of the Director of Soccer.  Children of the head coach and assistant coach will be assigned to their team.  REQUESTS TO PLAY FOR A SPECIFIC COACH OR BE ON THE SAME TEAM WITH A FRIEND CANNOT BE GUARANTEED.   ALL requests are required to be in the "Special Comments" section of the player's online registration.  Emails cannot be accepted for player-team placement.

Practice Information
Practice times and location are determined by the coach and are limited to a max of two per week.  Attendance at practice is expected but not mandatory.

Game Information
Practices typically begin 2-3 weeks prior to the start of the season.  Weather permitting; each recreational team will play an 8-Game schedule at various locations in the Olentangy School district. Most teams play games on Saturdays, with some games on weekday nights and Sunday afternoons in order to complete all of the scheduled games.  OYAA makes every effort to reschedule games weather related cancellations if days and field space allow.  There are no refunds if all games cannot be rescheduled.


We ALWAYS need good Coaches!  Lack of coaches is the primary reason that players are turned away.  Please volunteer, we provide training and support.  Register yourself as a coach when you register your child.  Coach Workshops and On-field clinics will be held in February and March
