coach registration

All returning and new recreational coaches must register for every season. There is no registration fee for coaches. You can find the link to FALL 2014 online registration for coaches here.

FWYSA covers the registration fee to North Texas, so coach registration is free. Returning coaches must use their existing username and password.

If you do not remember your login information, click here to email Dale Story. New coaches will create a new account. All coaches must also have a valid and current Criminal Background Check.

ALL COACHES MUST COMPLETE A BACKGROUND CHECK BEFORE ROSTERS WILL BE HANDED OUT.

POTENTIAL NEW COACHES SHOULD FIRST COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR COMMISSIONER ABOUT THEIR INTEREST.

Background Check

All new coaches must complete the on-line Criminal Background Check. Returning coaches will need to complete the Background Check if their previous one has expired. Approvals typically expire each June 1.

When you register for the upcoming season, Got Soccer should prompt you to submit your Background Check.

OR you may log into your coach profile and submit a background check. Click here to access the login page. Then select Background Checks from the menu bar.

Where to Sit?
Home team will sit on the north or west side of the field. Visiting team will sit on the East or South (“VES”) side of the field.

Scheduling requests are limited to avoiding direct conflicts (as best as possible) for a head coach of two teams, and one Bye for teams U7 and above. No scheduling requests for specific times. Scheduling requests need to be made online when the coach registers for the specific season

Please remember that the office will announce to all coaches when official rosters are available. You will find your official roster in your team account. Select Team Profile, than Documents. The most recent roster is listed first. Be certain that it is the current season. It will be a .pdf file with the North Texas Soccer and US Youth Soccer logos at the top--and the signature of the FWYSA Registrar at the bottom. Any other lists of players are not official and possibly inaccurate

All decisions regarding team formation, player placements, and coach assignments are made by the respective commissioners
