What is your refund policy?
Should circumstances arise that your child(ren) is unable to play and you need a refund, complete the Refund form located on the "RCSA Forms" page and turn it in. You must request the refund in writing before the first scheduled game of the season. We will begin processing refunds on the Monday after the first scheduled game (this is to allow the treasurer the necessary time to respond to the refund request).
REFUND POLICY: * A refund of the registration fee less a $10.00 Administration Fee will be issued to any player who decides, prior to the first game of the season, to not play on the RCSA team to which he/she was assigned. * A full refund of the registration fee (not including online processing fees) will be made if a player registers and RCSA cannot provide a team upon which the child can play.
How much are the uniforms?
Jerseys are included in the registration fee. You need only purchase soccer shorts. RCSA furnishes jerseys at the beginning of each Fall season and sizes should be ordered so that it will last for 2 season. Only those players who are new, changed teams or moved up in divisions will receive a new jersey in the Spring. Should your child out grow his/her jersey come Spring, you will need to pay for a new jersey.
How does my child get on a team?
After registration, all players are placed within their age group, then separated by age and gender (U4, U5 and U6 are co-ed). Last two (2) season returning players are guaranteed a spot on their prior team. Remaining and new players are picked from a blind pool by the Team Formation Committee. In accordance with North Texas and to prevent team stacking, we cannot honor requests for specific teams or coaches except where siblings are involved from U4-U8 or if a player is a new registration requesting a Buddy Draft. See RCSA Forms on this site for more information. Once the teams have been established, the coaches will contact each player to schedule practices.
When and where would the practices be?
A couple weeks after sign ups have concluded, the coaches will meet and receive their roster. Coaches who have not been cleared by North Texas via a background check, cannot receive their roster. Once the coaches have their roster, they will begin calling their parents for a team meeting and first practice. Each coach will set up the practice days, times and locations. Most younger division practice at the elementary schools or the Splash Park. North Texas established time limits on practices for all age divisions. U4, U5, U6 is typically 45-1hr once a week. U8 and up average 1hr to 1.5 hr. once or twice a week.
When does the season start?
Check the website for up to date information on games, schedules and start date. Spring typically starts the first weekend in March and the Fall starts the first weekend in September. Schedules are normally posted a week prior. Games are mostly held on Saturdays. Teams are scheduled no more than 2 week night games per team per season.
