Teams have been formed, time is running out, SIGN UP NOW or risk missing the season altogether. Late Registration is still open, but will close in just a few days!
REGISTRATION for Fall Soccer is $10 off DURING THE MONTH OF MAY ONLY, so REGISTER NOW FOR FALL SOCCER! Regular registration closes on July 18th so we can form teams based on registered players as of that date. Late Registration runs until 1 week prior to the first games of the season, so August 18th is the LAST DAY TO REGISTER FOR SOCCER!
Players should expect to hear from their coach AFTER our Coaches Meeting on August 5th. Fall recreational soccer games begin on August 26th. There will, as always, be no games over Labor Day Weekend.
Remember, LATE means we have limited slots left for players in some or most leagues (each year we have to send 50 or more kids away without a team to play in!), 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 or days left!
Evolution Academy and Select registrations are handled separately. If you are interested in being a part of Evo and are not already in touch with our coaches, please contact Academy@ColleyvilleSoccer.net and let's get started!
Open tryouts for Evolution begin soon! Signing day for Select is July 1! We look forward to seeing you on the pitch!
Time flies, its' Fall Soccer Season again! Teams are formed, coaches will convene on August 5 at Bear Valley Community Church at 9AM for our mandatory Coaches Meeting and NSCAA/USC coaches training session (for 4v4; we're having 7v7 training August 12 at Grapevine rec center 1-4pm!).
We still need you. At the end of this year, as we do every year, we're going to replace or reelect HALF of our entire Board of Directors, including MY ROLE. I'd be happy to step down and heop someone new have fun and make their mark on our beloved Colleyville Soccer; I'm anxious to do something different on the board, so if we have a great candidate for President at CSA beginning in May, they'll have my vote (and we have several on our current board that would be great choices).
We've accomplished a lot in my 6 years as your association President, including:
Come give us a hand, JOIN THE BOARD! Contact me today!
Patrick Dunagan, President
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!
At our SPRING Coaches Meeting in January we'll unveil our Volunteer/Coach of the Year for 2016/2018. Do you think your coach (or anyone else with CSA) should be considered for the next Volunteer/Coach of the Year award?
