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

Expectations for a BISA Coach

2013-08-02Updated: 2022-04-12 Burleson Independent Soccer Association

The coach of a team sets the attitude of everyone around them. This includes the players, parents and spectators. As the coach "the leader of the team" your responsibility is to provide a positive environment in which the children can learn and develop. The lessons that they learn extend beyond the child's soccer skills. They include how to deal with conflict and how to demonstrate good sportsmanship before, during and after the game. BISA expects the coach to lead by example and do their very best to provide a positive soccer experience for their team. Please keep this in mind... Read The Rest

BISA Referee Concerns Policy

2012-08-04Updated: 2022-04-12 Burleson Independent Soccer Association

BISA REFEREE CONCERNS POLICY As with any soccer match, there may be concerns about the referee crew that officiated the match. Per North Texas By-laws (3.13.1), the only 2 situations that can result in a protest of the game are: 1. A team knowingly plays an unregistered, ineligible, or suspended player; or 2. There has been an obvious error made in the application of the Laws of the Game that directly affects the outcome of the match, and the referee admits it. The center referee is in control of the match. Only the referee can reverse a call, prior to... Read The Rest

Addressing the Referees During the Game

2009-05-11Updated: 2022-04-12 Burleson Independent Soccer Association

Please do not address the refs during the game (see the September 20, 2005 Coach Memo regarding misconduct and dissent). If you have a problem, concern, or are upset with a call, discuss it with a board member or referee director, not with the referee. They are human and are going to flub a few just like each of our teams will flub a few during the course of a game. Talk to a board member about it and the ref can be educated in the proper manner (or the rules will be explained to us, which is quite often... Read The Rest

Coach Mantras

2009-05-07Updated: 2022-04-12 Burleson Independent Soccer Association

Primary focus on "development", not "winning" - subtle difference but very important.  Winning is desirable of course, but making it your primary focus, especially your primary short-term focus, will most likely lead to bad decisions in your training program and game execution (see "don't teach anything you have to undo later" below). Maximum touches on the ball during training sessions - make sure your practice plan leads to as many touches on the ball as possible.  This can be accomplished by separating the players into smaller groups during drills or by designing your practice to include drills and games...
