Recreational & Competitive Divisions

Columbus Event Center offers two separate brackets for soccer players. For beginners, we offer our 'Recreational' division. For those on club/travel teams, or players who have been around the game for a few years, we offer our 'Competitive' division. These two options allow you to register your child(ren) in a division that more closely matches their skill set or abilities in the game. This will lead to a better instructional opportunity for those just starting out or wanting to have fun. Meanwhile, our competitive division will feature players at a higher skill level competing against other experienced players. Both divisions allow kids the chance to play with others at or around their own skill level, while also challenging each other in a fun, fast-paced league.

Age Divisions

Our leagues are open to boys and girls ages 5 and older, including adults. Age is determined as of July 31, 2020 for the 2018-2019 league season. Age divisions will be determined based upon the number of entries. Our Under 6 division is coed, while older age divisions should have separate boys and girls divisions.

Game Details

Game length is determined by age division. The youngest divisions (U6) will play four, 5-minute quarters, while our oldest age divisions will play up to 24-minute halves. Games are played 4v4 plus a keeper (five on the floor per team) max. Substitutions are unlimited and can be done on the fly (during play). Because of our dasher boards, glass, and protective netting, the ball is nearly always in play.

Season Schedule

It is our goal to schedule as many divisions and games as possible for Saturdays. However, because we currently have only one court to play on, and in the event of a large number of participants, we may have some age divisions play on alternate days. Because of other events and activities already planned at the Event Center, alternate soccer days will be limited to Thursday evenings or possibly Sundays. Again, these alternate dates would only be used in the event of a full league, and would likely affect the older age divisions only. In the event every age division reaches maximum capacity, different age divisions may be limited to participating in certain seasons. In any event, parents and players would be contacted about any possible adjustments away from Saturday games, and refunds issued to those who would no longer be able to participate if the game dates were switched away from Saturdays.

Team Practices

Because our facility has just one surface for events and activities, and in order to ensure our facility continues to offer a wide range of different events and activities for our guests, we are unable to offer any time for league practices. If we had the facilities available to do so, the cost of the registration fees would be greater due to the additional cost for use of the indoor facility. For these reasons, our indoor soccer league teams do not practice outside of their scheduled league games. Additional practice, clinics, or soccer camps are offered in Columbus, and we would be happy to assist you in finding one if you wish. Or, if enough parents and players are interested, the Event Center could host an additional practice session or clinic separate of our existing leagues.

Required Equipment

Players are required to wear shoes without any cleats (tennis shoes are fine). It is recommended that players wear a different pair of shoes into the facility (carry the shoes they will wear to play soccer), as wet shoes can be slippery and dangerous on the court. Players are also required to wear shinguards, which must be covered by a pair of socks or pants. Soccer socks can be of any color. As for jerseys...

Soccer Jersey Check-Out

Soccer jerseys are provided by Columbus Event Center for use during the soccer season (ages 7 and older). These jerseys are property of the Event Center, and must be cared for while checked out, and returned to the Event Center upon completion of the soccer season. Players will be required to return their soccer jersey to the rink by close of business on the final day of their respective league season. Players who fail to return their jersey by the deadline will be billed for a replacement jersey. Because there are as little as two weeks between seasons, we must order replacements immediately to ensure we have enough for each player in the upcoming season. Your help on this matter is greatly appreciated. Our Under 6 division does not utilize jerseys, and regular T-shirts (or whatever is comfortable) are encouraged.

How Do I Register?

Players can be registered online through our website using our online registration system. Simply select the appropriate link to register up to three children at a time (or an entire team). You will be redirected to an online registration form based upon your selection. Complete the online form, and your registration will be emailed to Columbus Event Center. You will also receive a copy in your email account as well to review for missing or inaccurate information (please contact us if you find any mistakes).

After completing the form, you will have an link option to pay your league fees online through our secure store. Simply click the button to be redirected to the "League Sign-Up" category in our online Pro Shop. Or, if you are purchasing a LEAGUE PASS, select that item from the "Gift Cards & Passes" category. Add the correct item to your cart and complete the checkout process as you would any other online transaction. It's that easy! To speed up the process, and to give you the ability to look back at your order history, current order status, and more, feel free to create an account. Otherwise, you may checkout as a guest. When selecting the correct item to 'Add to Cart', be sure to pay special attention to the dates in the product description. This is important to avoid additional charges (or overpaying) for your league registration. If you have trouble, don't hesitate to contact us for assistance or to complete the registration over the phone.

Our online registration system will allow you to easily register up to three children at once on a single form. And yes, our online registration system will also allow you to register any child(ren) for multiple seasons on a single form. Why keep doing paperwork over and over again? You will receive an invoice about your purchase via email, as well as your own copy of the completed registration form(s) in a separate email. New this year, we have added language to our Terms & Conditions to allow electronic signatures. So, once registered online, you're all set!

Of course, you can also register by downloading a registration form from our website, or by picking one up at the rink. We can also mail one to you if you would like, along with other helpful information about our leagues. Or, we can also take registrations over the phone in just a few short minutes. Registration fees must be paid by the deadline to be included, and late registrants will be placed on a waiting list. Columbus Event Center can accept cash, checks, and credit cards for payment of all registration fees.

I've Registered. Now What?

First of all, thank you for taking part in these great leagues. We appreciate your support, and look forward to getting out on the court for some soccer! We have created deadlines for our leagues that are approximately one month before the start of the season. This allows us a couple of weeks to sort out players, create age divisions and teams, and put together information for our participants and their parents. Parents and players should be contacted two weeks before the scheduled start date of any league. If, for some reason, you do not hear from us, or do not receive information about the start of the season, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately at (402)562-5663.
