Fall Registration OPEN!

Our Fall 2022 Registration program is now open and can be accessed via the link below or via the PASO website. This past Spring season we used the updated version of Gotsport league management software, and it was extremely buggy, problematic, lacking in features, and difficult for everyone to use (parents, coaches, and league administrators alike). The framework of the Gotsport system does not lend itself to a system that can be fixed; the older version (Gotsoccer), while long in the tooth, was a much better system. Since we do not have the option of using the older, deprecated system and the new system is so poorly put together, we have moved off of Gotsport/Gotsoccer entirely. While North Texas Soccer is continuing to try to make Gotsport work, PASO is joining a dozen other US Youth Soccer state associations that have already moved to an entirely different platform, Demosphere.

The Demosphere platform offers a clean, linear registration process with clear indication of where you are in the process and how many steps are left or already completed. The new platform also greatly improves the ability to communicate both from the league administration to the members as well as coaches to their teams. There is a free app (no advertising either) for iPhone/Android which will notify you of field closures and schedule changes as well as league and team communications. The app also collates all members of a family who are playing and coaching into one common family schedule for both games and practices.

Coaches are still required to complete both an annual background check and the Federally required Safesport, both of which will be done through Demosphere.

The new system will require each player and coach to create a new profile upon their initial registration, one which, like the Gotsoccer system, will persist into future seasons.

This past season was an extremely difficult one from an administrative perspective for all the North Texas leagues which were migrated to Gotsport, PASO included. The amount of work required to accomplish the same registration, rostering, and league management tasks as previous seasons more than doubled. We are blessed as a league to have a wonderful registrar who worked 80+ hour weeks this past winter to pull the Spring season together in Gotsport. This level of effort is not reasonable to expect nor is it sustainable, so we have migrated PASO to a better, simpler, and more efficient platform.
