Stand with Ukraine

Update: 6-18-2024

THE SPRING SEASON IS NEARING ITS END!   You have all come through – and we now can look forward to our last games and the start of the playoffs.
 
NEXT SUNDAY’S SCHEDULE:  June 23rd games have been posted, as have the make-up games set for June 30th – but keep in  mind there could be changes.  Always check to be sure!
 
FORFEITS:  The end of the season often brings a handful of forfeits, as teams determine they are not going to make the playoffs.  Forfeiting a game without adequate advance notice causes real problems for the league and for your opponents; per NTPSA rules, a team must notify us at least 48 hours in advance of any game you will be unable to play.  If we do not receive that advance notice, we have to pay the game officials for their scheduled game, and we must pass that $180.00 cost – plus the $30.00 fee to cover the costs we pay to the assignor – to you.  We understand that a forfeit may occasionally be unavoidable, but if you know you are unable to field a team, please make every effort to let us know before the deadline. 
 
PLAYOFFS:  We will not play on Fourth of July weekend (July 7th); Playoffs for divisions that complete their schedule this Sunday will begin June 30th; the remainder are set to begin on July 14th, with Championship games on July 21st.  Knowing how warm the weather can be, we will plan to start games at 9:00 am; if you are in contention for the playoffs, but absolutely cannot play an early game, please let us know now.  Comfort – and safety – are important!
 
THANK YOU ALL for your patience and cooperation this Spring.  This league is all-volunteer; we are here because we love the game, and want to give you an opportunity to play the game.  We will be sending information about our summer plans – the August General Meeting –  and the Fall Season – later this week.  We are ready to finally get past this longest Spring schedule ever – and we are looking forward to the next season!

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.
