We use North Texas State Soccer age chart to determine a player's age group, please click here.

 

Payment Plan Option

The payment plan will be available in the fall season starting in June and the spring season starting in December.   If you register in June or December, you will have the option of paying 50% of the registration fees at that time and the remaining balance before the start of the season. The final payment will be automatically charged to your credit card before the start of the season.

Login Information for Returning Players

Players returning from last season will receive an e-mail from DSA to remind them to register.  

 

Login Information for New Players

Players who have not played will be prompted to set up an account before registering. Keep in mind the email you use for this account will receive all of our news, updates, and other correspondence. We prefer this email address to belong to the parent and not the player, so we know that you are receiving our communications. 

Login Information For Multiple Players 

Families with multiple players will use the same account.  

Forming Teams/Special Request

Teams are based on a child's birth year.  The DeSoto Soccer Association registrar and age group coordinator will identify the number of players, teams, and coaches needed for the season. All request are taken into consideration but is not guaranteed.  Placement is based on availability.  Make your request during registration.  Be sure to select the option that pertains to your player and/or leave a request in the special request section. 

  • New players are placed on an unassigned/draft player pool for team placement. Players, who did not play with DSA the season prior are considered new players for team formation purposes. 

  • Returning players have priority to return to the team they played on the previous season.  Returning players' spots are saved until the seeding meeting. Once late fees start, their spot will be filled.  A returning player, that wishes to be placed on a new team must request this at registration.  If a player skipped a season and wishes to return to their original team; may do so only if space is available.  Returning players must register on time.

  • Non-DeSoto resident players are required to fill out a player release form to play with DeSoto Soccer Association and live within the boundaries of another city (your home soccer association). The Release Form is located in the player form section. Please return the completed form by following the Document Uploading registration instructions or emailing a scanned copy to desoto.soccer@yahoo.com. 

  • Special Requests consist of requesting a team, a new team, a friend/sibling, or carpooling. Parents may also request their child to play up to one age level.  Players may not play up to more than one age level. For example, a 7U player may play up on an 8U team, but not on a 9U team.  An 8U player may play up on a 9U team if an age-pure division cannot be made. Players cannot play down an age group unless they have a documented mental or physical disability and have received approval from NTX.  To be compliant with recruiting rules and policies, we will not accept requests from teams or coaches.  If you do not request at the time of registration, we may be unable to accommodate you.  Special requests can be made by filling in the special request section during the registration process.  Special Requests are NOT guaranteed.  Our ability to honor requests is based on North Texas Soccer rules, DSA draft practices, and the number of teams/players registering each season.

The DeSoto Soccer Association registrar and age group coordinator will identify how many teams are formed and new coaches.  Age Group Coordinators will contact parents of newly formed teams to solicit volunteers to coach.  As with other recreational sports volunteers, typically parents, coach DSA Soccer.  DSA DOES NOT have a pool of coaches wanting to coach.  If you would like to become a coach, assistant coach, or team parent, please check one or more boxes on the registration form.
