    • ARLINGTON SOCCER UNLIMITED (ASU): For most U9 and Older Teams.

 

COACHES:

  • HOW ARE COACHES SELECTED? CHSA is a volunteer organization. We depend heavily on the parents of each team. Our coaches and volunteers have, or have had, kids playing within our organization. If you would like to volunteer to coach your child's team, simply register for a Coach account on the Coaches page and we will contact you about coach training and  acquiring a background check.

  • ARE CHSA COACHES CERTIFIED/TRAINED? We strongly encourage our coaches to attend coaching clinics with the North Texas Soccer Association.  Each coach is required to take a mandated SafeSports course. 

 

BIRTH CERTIFICATES:

  • DO I NEED TO SHOW A BIRTH CERTIFICATE FOR MY CHILD? All NEW players to Cedar Hill Soccer will need to show their birth certificate for age verification.  This ensures that all of our players are competing in the proper age brackets.  Players may play "up" an age level, but they may never play "down" by NTSSA rules.  We do not store paper or electronic copies of birth certificates for your child's protection.

  • MY CHILD PLAYED IN CEDAR HILL YEARS AGO, WHY AM I BEING ASKED TO DO THIS AGAIN? When we moved our records over to GotSoccer, the birth certificate verification of our players was not transferred. We must re-verify all of our players once more.

  • WILL I HAVE TO PROVIDE A BIRTH CERTIFICATE AGAIN IN FUTURE SEASONS? No, since GotSoccer is used by North Texas Soccer, your child's account will remain verified for all of the years to come, even if you move to another town in North Texas Soccer.

  • HOW CAN I SUBMIT A BIRTH CERTIFICATE FOR VERIFICATION? You can submit birth certificates by email, text, fax, or in person.  Email regsistrar.chsa@gmail.com for more information.
