Fall 2018 Registration is now OPEN

The registration deadline is August 8th. Registrations after this date include an additional late fee, are accepted on a space available basis only, and players may not be placed on their returned team.  

Do not wait - register today!


The coaches meeting will be the week of August 13th and players will begin to hear from their coaches after that date.  Expect practices to start the week of August 20th.


Games will begin on September 8th.  

Academy Soccer

Do you have a player U7 - U9 (2011 - 2009 birth year) interested in getting more touches on the ball?  Visit our "Club Play" section for more information on our academy program.


Academy registration is open here.

Age Chart

Age divisions for soccer are different then most other sports.  We work on a calendar year.  Find your child's birth year on the chart and it will tell you what age group they will be in.  


Per North Texas rules,  three (3) is the minimum age to play soccer. Players who are three (3) years of age by July 31 will be eligible to play in the Fall season and players who turn (3) years of age by December 31 will be eligible to play in the Spring season.

Registration Costs

Registration costs pay for fees paid to US Youth Soccer, North Texas Youth Soccer, Best Southwest League and season costs such as referee fees, lining fields, and trash pickup.  Costs for uniforms are not included.  Your coach will work with the team to purchase uniforms prior to the first games. 


You will need to purchase soccer cleats, shin guards, and a ball for your player for practices and games.


U4 - U8 Registration Fee is $65**

U9 - U14 Registration Fee is $70**

U15 - U16 Registration Fee is $75**

U17 - U19 Registration Fee is $85**


A late fee is added to registration costs after the August 8th deadine.  


**City fees must be paid at the time of registration and are in addition to registration costs.

Team Formation

New players are required to send in a copy of their Birth Certificate for verification of birth date.


Returning players have first priority to return to the team they played on the previous season.  During the registration process, make sure to select the option to "Return to Previous Team".  No special request form is required.  If roster spots remain, players requesting to return to the team after missing a season will be given next priority.


A returning player that does not wish to be returned to their previous team may ask to be "returned to the draft" during registration.


All NEW players are placed in a unassigned/draft player pool for team placement.  

Special Requests

 

Requests for specific team placements put in the notes during registration will NOT be seen during draft. Please use the Special Request form found here. You do NOT need to use this to request that your player be returned to the team they were on last season.  If you ask for them to be returned to their team during the draft, that will be done without this form.


Special Requests are NOT guaranteed.  Our ability to honor requests is based on North Texas Soccer rules, MSA draft practices, and the number of teams/players registering each season.

City Park Fees

The City of Midlothian is responsible for the upkeep of both Hawkins Spring Park and Midlothian Community Park.  They require a Park Fee be paid in addition to the association registration fees.  The Park Fee is currently $5 for in-city residents and $20** for out-of-city residents.  


** The city council voted to raise the Park Fee for out-of-city residents from $10 to $20 beginning the Spring 2017 season.

Team Practices

 Teams practice 1-2 times a week in the evenings. The days and times are picked by coaches during the coaches meeting at the beginning of the season.


We are frequently asked to place players on teams based on the practice times.  While we understand work schedules, this is just not possible because teams are put together before practice days and times are chosen.



Refunds

A full refund will be given if a player requests to be dropped before draft, and /or when the association cannot provide a league to play in or there are not enough players to field a team.   


A refund of 50% will be given if a player drops after team formation has occurred and no games have been played or a player that obtains a medical disability that will not allow him to play before the games begin.   


No refunds will be given if a player drops after the season begins regardless of the explanation.  There are no refunds given to academy player registrations.  


Refunds for Premier FC are based on your player contract. 


Refund Requests will not be processed until after the season officially begins.  Please be patient - registration and the beginning of a season is a very busy time for the association volunteers!

Parent/Spectator Code of Conduct

We have a responsibility to promote high standards of behavior and ensure soccer can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment. Remember, youth soccer is a time for players to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills. Winning isn’t everything. Play your part and help enforce the Code of Conduct for Spectators and Parents/Guardians at all times. 

Reminder...

 No Jewelry / No Hair Beads / No Barrettes – According to the laws of the game, players are not allowed to wear jewelry, hair beads or barrettes.  Players may not tape, cover up, or otherwise hide prohibited items.  If the item is not removed, the player will not be allowed to participate in the soccer match.
