Guest Player Release for Tournament
Referee Checks are available at the Benbrook office (1655 Winscott Rd.) during posted hours. Typically, they are retrieved at the coach meeting prior to the season. We do not mail them or deliver them. At the conclusion of the season, any remaining checks will voided and shredded--and will not be reissued.
Where to Sit?
Home team will sit on the north or west side of the field. Visiting team will sit on the East or South (“VES”) side of the field.
Scheduling requests are limited to avoiding direct conflicts (as best as possible) for a head coach of two teams, and one Bye for teams U7 and above. No scheduling requests for specific times. Scheduling requests need to be made online when the coach registers for the specific season. Deadline for coach registration is the same as the deadline for player registration.
Please remember that the office will announce to all coaches when official rosters are available. You will find your official roster in your team account. Select Team Profile, than Documents. The most recent roster is listed first. Be certain that it is the current season. It will be a .pdf file with the North Texas Soccer and US Youth Soccer logos at the top--and the signature of the FWYSA Registrar at the bottom. Any other lists of players are not official and possibly inaccurate
