U12 Boys WSSL Team Playing Jr State Cup
This spring the U12 boys WSSL team will be playing for the chance to be called "State Champions" as they participate in the Jr State Cup hosted by MSYSA.
"We are all excited to see how we do against the big clubs in the state", Coach Rob Antcliff said. "It's kind of an anomaly that a community based club participates but it was an anomaly that a community based club wins WSSL's division 1 and these '04 boys have done that the last two seasons."
The team's pool opponents include Ypsilanti Pumas (away, 4/17), Michigan Jaguars CW3 (North Meridian, 4/23 2pm), Michigan Burn (North Meridian, 5/7 2pm) and Kalamazoo Kingdom (away, 5/21). The winner of the group will play in a semi-final game at Noon on Saturday, June 4 at the Saginaw Soccer Complex. The championship game is Noon on Sunday, June 5 at Saginaw.

June 18-23 Tryout Details Coming In May
Tryouts for the Fall 2016 (Sept.1 – Nov. 1) and Spring 2017 (April – June 1) CASL and WSSL seasons will be held Saturday, June 18- Thursday, June 23, 2016 at an Okemos field location. Dates, days and times for specific age groups will be released in early May 2016.
The State Association (MSYSA) mandates that no tryouts may take place before June 18. All players must tryout in order to be considered for an OSC team. If spots are open on a particular team, a supplemental tryout may be held in late July.
** New for 2016 ** Pre-Tryout registration to cut down on paperwork and lines at tryouts!
OSC is continuing the popular juggling club again this spring. Players will work toward reward levels for the number of consecutive juggles they can perform. For each level achieved, players will receive a reward tag they can attach to their bag.
Juggling helps players improve their touch on the ball, allowing them to be more comfortable and confident when they have the ball. Plus, juggling improves a player's balance and concentration.
Top players dribble and juggle a ball every day!
Six OSC U10-13 teams to play in WSSL in 2015-2016
OSC "A" teams in the U10-U13 age groups will have an opportunity to play in WSSL (Western Suburban Soccer League based in Canton) in the 2015-2016 season. Coaches will have the option to move their team to WSSL or keep them in CASL based on their team's ability. Advanced players will be assigned to the WSSL team and a CASL team will be formed to get as many players as possible playing soccer!
