Coaches


Fall 2020 Season Canceled

Parents/Coaches,

Thank you for your patience and continued support during these unprecedented times. Our board has been working to come up with a decision for the Fall season, while making sure that we keep in mind that our top priority would be the health and safety of our players, referees, families, etc.  We opened registration for 3 weeks, to give a voice to our parents and coaches.  The outcome was an extremely low response rate in registrations.  During our board meeting, we discussed many options, however, it was determined that it would be best that we cancel our Fall 2020 season until things become more stable for our children. This was not an easy decision.  We understand the importance of social activities and keeping children active, we hope that some stability in normal practices will take place over the next few months, and we can come back better than ever for a Spring season. We apologize for any inconveniences that this may have caused anyone.

In making this decision, we considered each of our children's health, safety, and our families' financial situations. We felt that we would give this pandemic an opportunity to level out as well as our financial situations to become more stable.  We will offer the returning minor league (U4-U10) players from Spring 2020 discount, when we open registration in the Spring.

It is our hope that you understand and support our position as we plan and look forward to our Spring 2021 season.

Thank you for all your continued support and stay safe.

SafeSport Certification Tips 

 

  • The Access Code works (NTSSA has checked it and it is valid).
  • Do Not Copy & Paste the Code.  Make sure to type the code in the correct field.
  • Some devices will reject the code, due to the type of internet that is supporting that device.  If your phone rejects the code, try a desktop computer, and vice versa. 
  • Microsoft Edge does not seem to support the code.  Try to use Chrome or FireFox. 
  • Make sure to use the same name and email address that you are registered in Got Soccer.  If the name or email doesn't match, it will not link to your Coach or Team Manager account.
  • If you still run into issues after trying these tips, please reach out to registrar@rowlettsoccer.org for assistance. 

SafeSport Certification Required to all Volunteers starting 

January 1,2020

To all North Texas Soccer Coaches/Managers:

Beginning January 1, 2020 coaches and managers must have completed the SafeSport Course Certification before being rostered to a youth team or to remain on the roster of a youth team.

Online awareness/prevention training is available at no cost to North Texas State Soccer Association Coaches, Managers and Team Contacts through the U.S. Center for SafeSport.

Login to your GotSoccer Coaches/Managers account and the link for SafeSport Certification will be on your Home page.  Make sure you use the same name and email address as the one you have in your GotSoccer profile.  This will insure your SafeSport Certification completion will show in your GotSoccer profile.

Thank you for your participation in soccer and working to keep our children safe!

 

If you have any questions with registering for the course, please contact Tina Greene - Registrar.

FIFA 11+

The “FIFA 11+ ” is a complete warm-up program to reduce injuries among male and female football players aged 14 years and older. The program was developed by an international group of experts, and its effectiveness has been proven in a scientific study. Teams that performed the “FIFA 11+ ” at least twice a week had 30-50% fewer injured players. The program should be performed, as a standard warm-up, at the start of each training session at least twice a week, and it takes around 20 minutes to complete. Prior to matches, only the running exercises (parts 1 and 3) should be performed. For all exercises, correct performance is of great importance. Therefore, the coach should supervise the program and correct the players if necessary.
