Ohio Soccer State League is the elite league competition in Ohio.
Ohio is where we live.
Ohio is where we play.
Ohio is where we #TakeFlight.
When you step onto the field for an OSSL match, you not only represent your team and club, but you represent the fierce, bold nature of the people of Ohio. The beautiful game is the epicenter of our focus, affording players the opportunity to spread their wings and rise to the challenge. We believe that challenges create learning opportunities that stay with you, long after you hang up your cleats.
Striking a balance between exclusivity and accessibility, the OSSL provides a gateway for teams (clubs) to reach premier regional and national competitions such as the Great Lakes Conference and National League.
Focused on providing players with the highest level of play possible. Driven by the desire to see athletes #TakeFlight.
