CAYSO Fall Season Cancelled

Hello CAYSO Families – While we were hoping to move forward with some sort of soccer this fall, recent developments have led us in a different direction.  Since we last sent out an update, MAYSA has cancelled fall leagues, the Columbus School District has cancelled fall sports, and other area soccer programs have cancelled their fall programs.  The CAYSO board considered all of these factors before coming to the very difficult decision to cancel CAYSO’s fall season.

In coming to this decision, we considered pursuing ‘friendlies’ against other communities.   A few area programs are moving forward with a modified season and are looking for other teams to hold scrimmages against.  Many of those programs are not allowed to play on their own fields, so they are looking to other communities for a place to practice and play.  Ultimately, we decided to follow the high school’s plan of waiting for the spring season.

Instead of providing partial refunds or credits towards future seasons, we are going to refund all fees paid towards the fall and spring seasons.  When it comes time to register for the spring, you will be starting with a clean slate.  It could take a few weeks to process all of the refunds.  Please let us know if you haven’t seen your refund by October 1. 

We still encourage you and your kids to find some green space and kick the ball around this fall! 

Anything else going on?  Please contact us


We are glad you can join us!

Since 2012 Coach Paul and a dedicated group of parents have been coaching and instructing youth soccer as Whole Body Strong. We are still the same group of parents you know and trust, still with the same focus of “equal playing time regardless of skill or score,” just with a new name.

The fall season will continue with the Columbus Area Youth Soccer Organization (CAYSO).  CAYSO is a Columbus-based non-profit that will provide Columbus area youth access to the MAYSA soccer leagues and younger programs focused on basic soccer skills.  The focus remains on “equal playing time regardless of skill or score.”
