Important Academy Registration Information

--Each academy player must be registered with a North Texas Member Association, and acquire a Member Association registration number.

--Players may or may not be on a recreational team, unless required to be on a recreational team by their member association.

--A copy of player’s Birth Certificate is required at time of registration for age verification.

- NTSSA Rule 4.1.3 Member Associations will require all players to present proof of age when they register to play for the first time in the Association. Proof of age shall consist of a birth certificate or birth registration issued by an appropriate government agency, Board of Health records, passport, alien registration card issued by the United States government, a certificate issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service attesting to age, a Uniformed Services Identification and Privilege Card (DD Form 1173) issued by the uniformed services of the United States or a certification of an American citizen born abroad issued by the appropriate government agency. Hospital, baptismal or religious certificates will not be accepted.


--This form is required for player participation in any NTSSA academy program or tournament. This form must be available at all training and competitions for insurance purposes. No formal contract or written commitment may be signed by or on behalf of the player to commit a player to an academy team. Soccer Academy play is in addition to recreational play.


--Players may join any Soccer Academy of their choosing within their age group, and are not required to obtain a release from their NTSSA recreational team to participate on an Academy team. Players must present a form of proof of registration signed by a member association registrar each time they participate with an Academy.

--Players may join as many Soccer Academies as they like as long as the Soccer Academy is recognized by a North Texas Soccer Member Youth Association. The Academies may charge a fee to cover expenses in addition to the player’s recreational soccer registration fees. Soccer Academy teams are not considered “registered teams,” and therefore do not have to follow recreational team formation rules.

--Soccer Academy teams may not enter NTSSA sanctioned tournaments unless the tournament has specified a “Soccer Academy” bracket. In that event, players must declare which Soccer Academy team they will play with in the tournament and may only play for one team in a tournament. Violation of this rule shall result in sanction against the offending party (coach, assistant coach, manager, parent, or other team representative), which could include suspension from all soccer activities for a period of time.

--NTSSA Rule 3.10.3 Player participation in academy competitions does not guarantee playing time and players may move to other academy teams at any time.

--Any true age 10U player (2014-2017 birth years only) that chooses to play on a true age 11U competitive team, is NOT permitted to play academy or recreational soccer, making their submitted Academy registration VOID.

In order to register your child, you must have a birth certificate uploaded to your GotSport profile. You will not be allowed to pay if you do not have one uploaded to your account and if you do not pay, your child is not registered and will not be placed on a team.
