Spring 2023 Soccer Information
• Why is the Association requiring a birth certificate? The North Texas Soccer Association (NTXSA) is mandating that we have a birth certificate on file for every child uploaded in gotsport. If we received one from you before, you are good. If we do not receive a birth certificate by February 24, 2023, your child will not be entered in the draft.
• How are teams formed? Players may return to their 2022 Fall team only. All other players will be placed by means of a blind draft If the coach DOES NOT return, the players that requested to return will remain together
• What size ball will my child use? U6 - U8 - #3, U10 - U12 - #4, and U14 - U16 - #5
• Equipment: All players must wear shin guards under their socks. Baseball, softball, and football cleats are not allowed because of the toe cleat. The cleat may be cut off and then they will be acceptable. No exceptions! This is for the safety of the players.
• When will the season start/end? Practices will begin at the coaches’ discretion. Games will start on March 25, 2023. There will not be any games on Saturday April 8th, Easter Weekend. The season will end with a tournament for U8 and up. The tournament will be held on June 3,2023. The U6 division will wrap up their season on May 20th. (All dates are subject to change.)
• Where will games be played? All games will be played at Coleman Park, during daylight hours. We try to schedule games only on Saturdays, however, on occasion, there are games on a weekday or Sunday afternoon.
• When will my coach contact me? Draft will be held on February 25, 2023. All coaches are asked to contact their team promptly. If your coach hasn’t made contact by March 3, 2023, please send an email to email@example.com
• What does the registration fee cover? Registration fees are used to cover the cost of Jerseys, Insurance/North Texas Assoc. dues, City of Sulphur Springs usage fees for the fields, trophies for U6 and 1st and 2nd place for tournament, and referee expenses.
• I would like to coach my child’s team; however, I don’t know anything about soccer! We find that many parents are willing to give of their time to coach but do not feel adequately equipped to do so. We will provide a Coaches Clinic that can assist you with player development, drills, practice organization, and ideas for practice places, as well as understanding the laws of the game. YouTube is a great place to pulls drills from!
• Coaches Clinic: TBA. More information to be provided at draft.
• I may be interested in refereeing, what do I do? The SSSA requires that you be at least a Grade 8 or 9 certified referee with the NTSSA
