CLICK HERE to begin filling out your application for one of CSA's two annual $2,000.00 scholarship checks, being awarded to a pair of deserving current or former CSA players or referees.
The application consists of a number of questions, easy enough to complete without forethought, a 500-word ESSAY on WHAT COLLEYVILLE SOCCER HAS MEANT TO YOU (best to probably write it in advance then cut/paste it into your application!), and space to tell us about up to three of your extracurricular activities, together with your activity sponsor/teacher and their contact information. Lastly, we ask for one TEACHER and one NON-TEACHER reference, including phone contact number.
Once you have all that together, just click the link above and fill it out. Applications are accepted through midnight on April 23rd, and winners will be contacted by May 1, and formally announced and awareded at our Annual General Meeting on May 2nd at our AGM at Bear Valley Community Church in Colleyville (see immediately below for details about the AGM!).
Please join us for the Annual General Meeting of Colleyville Soccer, 6pm on May 2nd at Bear Valley Community Church, 7900 Precinct Line Rd, Colleyville. We have a lot to share, a lot to decide and lot of great soccer to prepare for in the 2017/2018 soccer year! Plus, we'll be awarding two former CSA players or refs $2000 college scholarships, and maybe even surprise you with some great news about the coming years at Colleyville Soccer!
See you on the 2nd!
Happy New Year! There's still (a little) time left to sign up for SPRING SOCCER! U4-U14 player registration closed once the season started on Feb. 18th, but U15+ is still open for another few weeks, as their season doesn't start until MARCH 18th.
Spring Rec. games started February 18th for U4-U14. Spring Rec games will start on March 18th for U15 and up.
Late registration means we have limited slots left for players in some leagues, so REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, don't wait for anything. No need to call, we cannot do anything without a registration in place, so DO IT NOW! Every season we get calls and emails from parents apologizing for missing registration deadlines. We have to move on or we endanger the season for the other 1400 kids playing soccer in Colleyville this season! SO next time remember to REGISTER EARLY, don't put it off! When you see the REGISTER NOW signs all over Colleyville, it's already the end of the signup season, only a few weeks left!
New and returning Academy Teams players must register by January 6th to avoid the $50 Late Fee. Teams are formed and leagues sign-ups due early than Rec. soccer, so act now! Learn more on the Academy & Select page.
Thank you, Parents, once again, for helping give your kids a great youth sports experience here in Colleyville, we couldn't do it without you!
It's Winter. I get it. How can we think about Spring Soccer yet? Because it'll be here sooner than you think! LATE Registration is still open (for a short while!) for the coming Spring Soccer season.
Before the Spring season starts, we'll begin collecting applications for our 2017 College Scholarships. CSA awards two $2000 checks to former CSA players or referees. See the SCHOLARSHIPS page HERE.
We're so happy to have a record number of kids playing with us at CSA this soccer year! 120 recreational teams, which beats last year's all-time-high of 114! For the past several seasons we've had record numbers of those teams competing against other area associations' teams in the Northern Mid Cities Soccer League in the U9 through U19 age groups, What that means is that the kids of Colleyville and the surrounding areas are sticking with the game even longer, and we love that. We also have an ADULT CoEd team and an all-guys adult team, so there's an opportunity for just about everyone!
Our Evolution Academy and Select competitive soccer program has grown by leaps since it's beginning just 6 1/2 years ago, where we started with one coach and just two teams. Evo now fields 28 teams playing in the PrimeTime league, Plano Premier League and Lake Highlands Classic League, thanks to the hard work and dedication of a growing number of wonderful professional Evolution coaches, many new or newish to our country from Ireland and England, not to mention the exceptionally marvelous parent volunteers who keep everything moving as Evolution team managers.
Across the board, we're growing, and we're so happy to have you as a part of it!
We hope you have a wonderful season of soccer at CSA, or wherever you choose to play. The important thing is to be out there, on the pitch.
I'm interested in your experience at CSA. Please drop me a note any time at president@ColleyvilleSoccer.net and let me know how we're doing or what we can do to make your child's youth sports experience the very best possible!

Paul, as our Coach of the Year for the 2015/2016 soccer year, joins a really exclusive club:
2012-13 Julio Castaneda
2013-14 Scott Rawlins
2014-15 Brandon Powers
2015-16 Paul Adams
Paul has been the CSA Scheduler for MANY years, currently coaches two teams, but has coached as many as three in a single season, and is also one of our most senior adult referees. Paul embodies everything we think is GREAT about Colleyville Soccer, and tends to be one of those coaches for which we get more requests each year than we can accommodate. Thank you, Paul.
Coach of the Year (aka, "Volunteer of the Year") is an award announced annually. Our Board of Directors retains full rights to choose our COTY/VOTY, and may use any variety of means to make that final determination, but ultimately we're looking for people who selflessly DO IT RIGHT, who put their kids first, and who create an environment on their team(s) which fosters all the qualities important to Colleyville Soccer, including but not limited to, teamwork, fair play, hard work and above all, character.
CSA's COTY/VOTY award is on permanent display at The Londoner in Colleyville, just to the left of the fireplace in the back room, right under our EVO Trophy Wall. Go check it out!
