to the Burleson Independent Soccer Association
Burleson Independent Soccer Association (BISA) provides recreational youth and adult soccer to Burleson and the surrounding areas. We are a member of the North Texas Soccer Association and focus on providing a safe and positive playing experience for everyone.
The games are structured to develop physical and social skills while promoting the team concept. Everyone who participates on or off the field has the opportunity to learn the game of soccer and develop new friendships along the way. Come on out and join us on the fields!

Spring registration is now closed online. Adult registration will be open online thru February 20.
All late registrations will need to go thru the age group commissioner for approval and will be subject to a $15 late fee. Please remember are board members are volunteers with full time jobs and will respond to emails in the order in which they received them. The age group commissioners are listed below:

U4 registration: players that will be 3 on or before December 31, 2014 are eligible for the spring season.
We are pleased to announce we will now be offering a sibling discount for families registering more than 1 youth player. You will need to have the players on a family account in the Gotsoccer system to have the option of the sibling discount using the online registration. We will also off the discount to families at the walk up registration. You can create a family account by going to www.gotsoccer.com if you do not currently have one. This allows you to access all of your players using 1 login and password. Please keep in mind that all login usernames must be unique so you cannot use one of your player's current usernames for the family account or that will be the only player that you can have on that family account. Passwords can be duplicated, however.
If your player is a new player this season or if your player is returning and needs to turn in a birth certificate, those can be emailed to Julie Mason at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can email Julie Mason to make arrangements to get this copy to BISA. We can only accept typed County Birth Certificates (not hand-written or hospital copies) or passports for verification of date of birth.

|BISA No Tolerance Policy
Fri, Aug 10, 2012
BISA Zero Tolerance Policy
Effective immediately, the following referee policies will be followed by all soccer referees at all outdoor soccer matches officiated at BISA soccer fields.
BISA Zero Tolerance
All persons responsible for a team and spectators (coach, assistants, and team managers) shall support the referee team. Failure to do so will undermine the referee’s authority and potentially create a hostile environment for the players, the referees, and all other participants and spectators. Consequently, the following policy is effective immediately:
NO SPECTATOR IS TO ADDRESS THE CENTER OR ASSISTANT REFEREE DURING THE MATCH FOR ANY REASON!!!!!
During the Match the Team Captain or Coach may address the referee for:
Responding to a referee who initiates communication
Requesting a substitution
Pointing out emergencies or safety issues
At half-time or at the end of a match, a coach may ask a referee to explain a rule(s) or a call in a polite and constructive manner. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT AN INVITATION TO DEBATE! ABSOLUTELY NO SARCASM, HARASSMENT, OR INTIMIDATION! If a coach feels that there were concerns that need to be address about a referee, then the coach should complete BISA’s referee feedback form or contact the Referee Director.
Penalties for Coaches/Managers of Team:
1st Minor infraction - Referee shall give verbal warning
2nd Minor infraction - Caution
3rd Minor infraction - Dismissal
1st Serious infraction - Caution or Dismissal depending on seriousness of infraction.
(Dissent=Caution; Offensive, insulting, abusive = Dismissal)
Note: It is important to remember that the seriousness of the infraction is solely the opinion of the referee responsible for the match. There is no questioning of a Caution or Dismissal at the field, to the officiating crew, or any Board Member. The only avenue for appeal is a properly constituted Appeals and Disciplinary hearing conducted according to the By-Laws.
