Spring Recreation - Central Oregon Soccer League (COSL)

Spring Recreational Soccer






What is COSL?

Central Oregon Soccer League or COSL is designed to promote fun and fitness through soccer. Recreational soccer is a less competitive environment that builds soccer skills and fundamentals through the great volunteers and administrators that help guide the league. The Central Oregon Soccer League will host over 1500 players in the Spring of 2023. 

Our recreational leagues are open to all players and is devoted to the enjoyment and love of the game, without a strong emphasis on competition. Teams are formed based on geographical location, age, school, requests, grade, and need. No player is guaranteed a request for placement on a certain team for any reason. Bend FC will divide players and create teams with volunteer coaches, mostly parents, and community members.

What is recreational soccer? Recreational soccer is a soccer program that is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high-level competition. Recreational soccer is about fitness and fun through soccer. 

What is my role as a parent? 

1.     Let the coach be the coach. Be respectful of their style. Don’t criticize. Build them up. Coaches are doing their best and need encouragement. 

2.     Encourage your child to work on the things they can control: their effort and attitude. 

3.     Create a positive, supportive atmosphere that encourages your child to maximize their potential 

4.     Do not coach from the sideline during games. This creates confusion for players and stifles their development and decision making. It is not helpful. 

5.     Model sporting behavior. Show respect for the opposition and officials, congratulate good play by both teams. Help set the example. 

6.     Keep it FUN! 

7.     Respect the coaches, referees, opponents, and league administrators 

8.     Communication. Let your coach know if you child will be absent.
