Field Marshal Schedule

Parents,

We are trying to make your child's playing experience as enjoyable as possible at our new complex.  Due to the size and shape of the complex, we have started a field marshal program.  This is very important for everyone's safety at the complex.  Each team has been assigned a maximum of 2 time slots to have a representative from their team help us out.  The field marshals are there to report to the board members on duty at the complex if they see an injury or heated situation that needs the board members attention that we might not be able to see.  Field Marshals may also be asked directions at the complex.  They are given a walkie-talkie along with a field map and a schedule of that day's games to provide the help we are needing.  We are just needing some extra sets of eyes to help us watch for anything that might need a board member's attention.  The schedule for this season is below.  Please look to see when your player's team is assigned and consider how your family can help with this very important assignment.

Coaches will be reaching out to parents when it is your team's turn to provide field marshals.  This can be a whole team effort or just 1 or 2 parents.  This is mandatory for all teams U5 thru U19.  Any team that does not participating during their assigned time frame in the U5-U8 age will lose their participation trophies at the end of the season and U9 and above will lose 3 points in the team standings.

North Texas Age Chart

Parents,

Below is the age chart that North Texas Soccer uses for the fall 2017-spring 2018 soccer year.  These players will all be the age under the number on December 31, 2017 and will turn the age of the age group during the 2018 calendar year.  I hope this helps some of the confusion.

New Concussion Rules

Please read the new concussion rules put out by North Texas Soccer attached below.

Referees do have the authority to send a player off the field for a head injury and a note from a physician stating the player is free of concussion will be needed before the player can play.  This does mean the player will not be allowed to come back into the game they are removed from as well as any games following without the note from a physician.

Recreational Player Association Change

All players that do not live within the Burleson ISD will need to fill out the online form to change their member association each fall, even if you have played for BISA in the past and not had to complete this form.  If your player did not play in the fall, they will need to fill it out for the spring season.  The website to do that is:

https://www.gotsport.com/forms/open/?FormID=1215

We've added a direct link to this website under the "Links" tab.

All players that need to fill this out will be receiving an email from Julie Mason.

Your "new" association will be Burleson, but your "current" association is NOT BURLESON.  Your player's current association will be listed on the email, but is usually along school district lines.  Most players will fall under Crowley (Crowley ISD), Fort Worh (Fort Worth ISD), and Cleburne (Cleburne, Alvarado, Joshua, Keene, Godley ISDs).

If you have any questions, you may email Julie Mason at julie.mason@bisasoccer.com
