Coaches Cards

All coaches, assistant coaches and team managers must have their coaches card visible to be on the sidelines.   You will be asked for your card if our referees can not see them.   It is the policy of North Texas State Soccer and their affiliates that only people with these valid North Texas ID Cards be allowed on the sidelines during games and practices.

We suggest that should  you be the only coach listed on the roster that you designate another parent as assistant or team manger and have them fill out the background paperwork as we realize there will times that you may not be able to be at all games.

The purpose of the coaches card is to show everyone that you have passed a background check prior to working with children.

You will receive your coaches card at the Coaches meeting, August 3rd
