Stand with Ukraine

Update: 2-21-2024

We are ready to play!  Before we start, here are a few reminders:

All teams must have one net and two flags at every game; that is in our rules. Playing at Premier Park, we supply those – but always be prepared and have yours with you. Games have been forfeited because a team was missing a net!

No alcohol is allowed at any public fields!  Don’t get spoiled at Premier Park and think you can drink at any other complex; the consequences are serious – as you have learned.  We appreciate being able to use the fields we have; don’t be the team that loses them.

Referee payment is $90 for each team at each game; please bring cash in the correct amount, as referees may not be able to make change. 

We have added a new field this season:  Pioneer Technology and Arts Academy (15720 Hillcrest Road; Dallas Texas 75248 – just north of Hillcrest and Arapaho Road).  The field is next to a church, and across the street from the school. Do not park in the church parking lot; park at the school, and walk across the street (there is a signal for pedestrians).  Smoking is not allowed at this field!  Again, act responsibly and abide by their rules; we are very fortunate to be able to use this pitch, and we want to develop a good relationship with the them.

Only players with NTPSA ID cards and who are listed on your Game Sheet are allowed to play.  Check your cards before and after every game to be sure you have them all.  

There are mid-week games in the schedule.  For divisions with an odd-number of teams, or if teams have to postpone a game for other reasons, there will be games scheduled mid-week or on April 28th (a “make-up” week).  This is Spring… and this is Texas… so there is always a chance we will have additional games that will have to be made-up.  We will keep you informed throughout the season whenever weather issues arise.

We have our last ID card session Saturday.  We will be open on Saturday (February 24th) from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.  Team Captains with complete rosters can pick up their ID cards Thursday during office hours (10:00 am – 1:00 pm) or Saturday.  Remember: Saturday is the day before the first game, and waiting until that late date incurs a $10 fee for each ID made.

Watch for any last-minute issues this week.  The past days have been a mad scramble to get fields confirmed and ready, schedules finalized, and game officials lined-up.  Our referee assigners are working to see that we do have coverage, but that is never easy on short notice.  If we have to cancel and reschedule any games because of the lack of referees this first week, we will try to let you know as soon as possible.   

Now let’s all get ready for this weekend; the weather looks perfect, we all need to get out of the house, and we are all ready to get back and play the beautiful game.  Thank you all for being a part of North Texas Premier Soccer!

When is Team Registration? Team registration is usually a middle weekend of January for the Spring season and middle weekend of July for the Fall season.

Is there late Team Registration?
No. In order to place the teams in Divisions and schedule the games for each season in a timely manner, teams MUST come in and register their teams at the scheduled times.

Can registration/red cards be paid with a credit card?  YES. Master Card and VISA Only (credit or debit cards).

My team is planning to play in a tournament during the season, what do I do to have that game rescheduled?
We must know at the registration of any schedule conflicts. This information must be included on your “Team Information Sheet” provided in your registration packet. A night game will be scheduled during the league’s scheduling process and the night game will be included on your team’s schedule when they are made available. There is a $75.00 fee for requesting the postponement of Sunday games to another day of the week. Per NTPSA Rules, any request for a postponement for Sunday play MUST be made at Team Registration.

How are the teams placed in Divisions?
The teams are placed in divisions based on their past play in NTPSA, the level of teams that return for the season, and the level of the teams that do not return for the season. We not only look at your season record but also how close the games and teams finished the games over the course of the season. The postseason play helps but is not a major determining factor whether a team moves up to the next division. Also, new teams have to be considered. They need to have a place to play also. While the returning teams are moved up or down as needed to complete a division based on their past, we will not move a team from Division 10 to Division 5 just to fill a division. We do ask that you look at the teams in a division, not the division number before you complain about your playing division. We usually do a good job of placing teams.

When will schedules/player ID cards play be available?
The playing schedules and player ID cards for the teams are handed out about a week prior to the beginning of league play. The date and time is included in your registration packets. If a captain cannot come by the office to pick up his team’s schedule and ID cards on the scheduled date, the schedules and ID cards will be available during the next time the NTPSA office is open. They will not be mailed.

Can a player play on two teams in this league?
NO !!! Even though this league has 20+ divisions, based on the skill level of the teams, players are not allowed to register and play on two teams. Due to the number of players contacting the office looking for teams and the way we schedule our games, we cannot accommodate a player that wants to play two games on Sundays. Players found to be playing on two teams can and will be suspended from play in NTPSA for a minimum 1 year.

What are the AGE Guidelines for participating in NTPSA Adult Soccer?
Players must reach the proper age (18, 30, 40, 50, 55, as pertains to the playing divisions) on or before the fisrt scheduled game date of the current playing season. No players under the age of 18 as of first scheduled playing date of current season are eligible to play in NTPSA Adult.

Why can’t ID cards and Roster Changes be made during office hours?
NTPSA only has one person working in the office, and with the paperwork and phone calls, there is not time to handle ID cards and roster changes. It is also a security issue. NTPSA schedules plenty of times for the captains to take care of their business when plenty of people are around to help.

Why does playing an unregistered /illegal player have such a stiff penalty?
Playing unregistered/illegal players results in voiding our Liability and Medical Insurance. Should a player be injured during a game when an unregistered/illegal player is found to have participated, the injured player is not covered by the Medical insurance and cannot file in order to help with his expenses. It is in the best interest of everyone to protect our teammates and watch for teams that want to cheat.

Why is there a fine for “Sent Off” players?
The fines collected for “Sent Off” players are part of the punishment, by hitting a player in the wallet for his misconduct, we hope will make the player think twice before being “Sent Off” again.

How are penalty points determined and why are points taken off the team’s standings once the penalty points have reached a certain level?
Penalty points are determined by the rules of the North Texas State Soccer Association and based on the referee’s report and misconduct marked by the referees on your team’s game sheet. These points accumulate over the course of the playing season, and once a team has reached 40 penalty points, 3 points are taken from their standings. This is our way of asking you to keep your teams under control. Three (3) points from a team’s standings can and has kept teams from postseason play. We understand that some referees give cards that teams do not always agree with, but why do other teams that have the same referee not get the cards. It’s all a matter of how a team plays the referee and the team’s way of dealing with it. At (70) penalty points a team is sent to the North Texas State Soccer Association for further discipline, suspended from further play in NTPSA, and cannot be allowed to participate in any postseason play.
