Jonathan Alder Soccer Association
Bringing Youth Soccer to Plain City since 1998
Our organization was started in the fall of 1998 and has grown substantially. We offer both fall and spring seasons for boys and girls beginning at age 4 through 8th grade.
Our teams play in 5 intramural co-ed divisions: Kickers (U6), Minis (U8), Cubs (U10), Juniors (U12) and Senior Division (U14). Each division plays on a different size field in accordance with the age of the players. All of these intramural games are played on Saturday mornings with our Senior Division playing games on some weekdays. Once in middle school our players (registration numbers permitting) are divided into girls and boys teams and play in the Middle School Soccer Association (MSSA) league. This league is made up of teams from around central Ohio such as Marysville, Hilliard, etc.
JASA is also a member of Ohio South Youth Soccer Association.
