Here are the important dates to know:
22JAN (Wed) - Registration CLOSES at midnight, and teams are formed over the next several days. LATE REGISTRATION opens on Monday the 27th, but remember your player WILL PROBABLY NOT BE RETURNED TO THEIR FORMER TEAM if you register late. That's because after teams are formed from registered players 1) there might not be room on the squad as we may have loaded the roster already from those earlier registrants, or, 2) in LATE reg we assign players based on NEED, so the team with fewest players gets late registrants, and 3) if several players from your team didn't register by the time we form teams, we might already have folded the few players that DID register in with another team because we didn't have enough players to form your team. I can't stress the importance of registering early. Also, we assign players to teams based on date they signed up, so the latest registrants can be left without a team in their age group at all. Don't let this happen. Register early!
01FEB (Sat) - COACHES MEETING. This is where your coach receives their practice field assignment and their roster. Look to hear from your coach about practices AFTER this date; most coaches will try to get 1-3 weekly practices in before the season starts. Practices will be on weeknights and are up to your coach's availability as well as available practice field space. If you are a new coach, this is where you'll be trained to coach and get all your coaching gear. Want to coach your player? Contact Shawn Spradley at vpcoaches@ColleyvilleSoccer.net right now!
15FEB (Sat) - GAME SCHEDULES ARE POSTED. Look for a link to your player's game schedule in the right side of this page. SCHEDULES WILL CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE SEASON, SO LOOK BACK OFTEN!
22FEB (Sat) - U4-U14 FIRST SATURDAY GAME DAY OF THE SPRING SEASON! Most games will be played on Saturdays, but as kids get older and games get longer, finding field space to play can cause games to push into Sundays or even weeknights. We hate weeknight games as much as anyone, so know we try to avoid them when possible, and won't schedule them for the youngest players.
7-8MAR (Sat/Sun) - WE **DO** PLAY the first weekend of Spring Break (this was a league decision, I'm not a fan). Please plan your vacation accordingly if you can, your team needs you! Coaches: if this game needs rescheduling get that request in RIGHT AWAY!
14-15MAR (Sat/Sun) - WE DO **NOT** PLAY the second weekend of Spring Break.
22MAR (Sat) - U15 and older FIRST SATURDAY GAME DAY OF THE SPRING SEASON! Older kids throughout all of North Texas start Spring Soccer late to avoid any conflict with High School Soccer.
14APR (Sat) WE **DO** PLAY the Saturday prior to Easter.
15APR (Sun) WE DO **NOT** PLAY on Easter Sunday. (We prefer to avoid Sunday play altogether, but tight season schedules and field space availability can make this necessary. Most other nearby associations play on Sundays all the time, so I think we're ahead of the curve on this. Since U9 and older teams play in league play, know that some "away" games in these age groups could take place on a Sunday, too.
Final Games are scheduled for May 2/3 but rainouts could push this to May 9/10.
We're planning a fun season end in tournament style. Your coach will fill you in when we get closer to this.

Dec 17, 2019 COLLEYVILLE
"Spring Soccer" is a misnomer, the season starts in February, but as is the case with a lot of things about league play, those decisions have a place in long-forgotten history and are carried forward by leagues all over the state and the country.
As mentioned above, registering for Spring Soccer early is an absolute must. We do our very best to place as many kids as we can in LATE REGISTRATION, but in a good year we'll still send 100 kids away without a team, and that's just plain awful. Sign up early so we can form teams knowing your player will be there!
Any questions, please feel free to text me any time at 817-808-0699. I'd rather have a late night conversation than have any Colleyville Soccer families be frustrated, and web sites are notoriously hard to navigate and find answers to specific questions. So text me, I'm here to help.
And thank you for being a part of Colleyville Soccer. Like the signs at our fields state very clearly, you are appreciated! Thanks, Mom. Thanks, Dad. You make CSA run.
See you on the pitch! (ver soon, it seems!)
Patrick Dunagan, President, Colleyville Soccer Association
