Location of Practices/Games:
Hilliard Soccer Complex

Hilliard, OH 43026
Practices start 2 weeks before the first game. Length of practice is up to 60 minutes.
There is approximately 10 minutes before each game to warm up.
IMPORTANT - Always check the goals to make sure the are staked down before every practice. Please do not practice near any goal that is not properly staked (all our goals are staked and checked throughout the season but we do have occasional vandalism that mess with the goals). Coaches may practice in green space anytime they must deviate from their assigned practice night/field unless there is a field not already being occupied. Coaches are free to contact other coaches to set up scrimmages, prior permission from HOSA/LRSL is not required. In the event of practice cancellation due to weather or a need for a change in practice day/time, please email Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. There are other Locomotive programs using the fields and even though you may think a field is available because of the rec practice schedule, that may not be the case.
Please check the Field Status on home page of website to see if fields are open - field status is updated by 4:00 each day. LRSL/HOSA does not cancel practices due to bad weather but will cancel for poor field conditions - it is up to each coach to cancel due to bad weather conditions for practices only. LRSL/HOSA determines whether games are on due to weather/field conditions.
Because of the significant health concerns posed by the risk of concussions and because of the Return to Play laws enacted by the State of Ohio, the OSYSA board of directors has passed the following rule (OSYSA rule 19.0) that is applicable to all players, their parents/guardians, coaches, referees and league officials who participate in or organize any OSYSA sanctioned or sponsored activity, including tournaments, or in any sanctioned or organized activity of any of the member leagues or associations of OSYSA.
