Information for parents of Academy players
General Information for parents of Academy players:
You have most likely been asked by a coach or club to provide the team with an Academy form for your child.
An Academy form is proof that your child is a registered as a sanctioned player as required by North Texas State Soccer Association to participate in leagues, tournaments, and other events that are sanctioned by North Texas Soccer Association (NTSSA).
If a player is not registered as a 'sanctioned' player then said player is NOT eligible participate in NTSSA events.
An Academy form is verification (proof) of the players registration and date of birth.
Academy Soccer (U7-U10) - Players this age can participate in both Recreational and Academy Leagues at the same time. Players are like "free agents" and will need an Academy Player Registration Form signed by a North Texas Association in order to play in NTX academy leagues or tournaments.
The form is player specific and good for participation with any academy team (always keep a copy for yourself). These teams often play in the UAL (United Academy League) or the PIT (Performance Indoor Training). To find a team for your player, check the games schedules for the current season or check the North Texas Boys/Girls Soccer forums . Uniform package is a required purchase and there is no guarantee of playing time.
WILL MY CHILD BE ASSIGNED TO A TEAM: No, FSA does NOT assign a team for your child. You must seek out a team for yourself. An Academy form simply verifies that your child is registered and eligible for Academy play in his/her age group.
