Bexley Rec/CESA Youth Soccer Merger  

Bexley Recreation and Parks is excited to announce a new partnership with Columbus East Soccer Association (CESA) to integrate youth soccer programs beginning in the fall of 2018. Both Bexley Rec and CESA have a long-standing tradition in the community of providing accessible, well-structured soccer programming and this merge will
foster better opportunities and allow soccer development
in Bexley to climb to new heights.

Under this new arrangement, the under six (6) program will now take place exclusively at Bexley fields, with the new fields at Schneider Park being the primary location, upon their completion. The under seven (7) through under ten (10) programs will continue to be held at the CESA fields at Easton.

Bexley Rec will continue to support the program through practice space for all ages and game space for the 6U program, as well as through feedback on the day-to-day operations and programming. Registration will be done exclusively through CESA and fall registration is now open. You can use the following link to register today: http://www.cesasoccer.org/Default.aspx?tabid=929038

We are excited for this opportunity to continue to grow soccer programming in Bexley. If anyone has any questions about the partnership, please feel free to contact Kevin Smith at ksmith@bexley.org.
