British Challenger Spring Soccer Academy
British Soccer is back for the Spring
We are pleased to continue our soccer camp partnership with Challenger Sports.
Challengerâ€™s Professional British & Brazilian Coaches are coming to teach players the fundamental skills they need to take their game to the next level. Weekly sessions guarantee your players are sure to have fun while practicing game-related technical activities. Camps will be held at Chinn Chapel Soccer Complex in Flower Mound.
For all Game U9 and above a game report from each team should be presented to the Referee prior to the game. The Referee will fill in the score and return the forms to the coaches at the end of the game and the "Home Team" coach should call in the scores. If any cards are issued during the game, the Referee will tear off the lower corner to return to the coach and will retain the remainder of the report as record of the issued card.

Sportsmanship and Running up the Score
The goal of Recreational Soccer is to provide a positive, fun atmosphere for players to learn and play the game. GLASA believes that "Running Up the Score" in a game with little regard to it's effect on the opposing players is not in the spirit of the game and/or why people play recreational soccer. It can also come off as a lack of respect for the players and coaches on the other teams. We understand that there may be instances where a team is just superior and this will happen on occasion but we want you to understand that you should do everything in your power to try and keep the games fun and competitive.
To this end, the GLASA board has voted to implement the following policy below in which we will review all U9 and above games ending with a score differential greater than 8 to determine if both coaches did everything possible to try to keep the game positive and competitive.
If you have any questions regarding the policy, please direct them to your Age Group Commissioners.
