Why should I play state level soccer?

The third level of soccer is State Competition. This is the most competitive level of soccer. Players are more skilled, faster, have better ball control, and are more aggressive and play harder than at the District program.

How are teams formed?

State Competition teams are formed by licensed coaches and through a tryout process. State Level coaches are committed to training the players to the highest level they can reach. They are required to be licensed coaches who take training courses on coaching. Who your player’s coach ends up being is based on whom the coaches select from tryouts. Ultimately the decision is yours, on which team you want to play for, and you should ask questions and feel comfortable with the coach and team.

When are tryouts?

2021 Utah Valley United tryout will be the end of May. Dates and Times: TBA. Contact the VP of Competition for further questions.

Can I get a refund on my registration?

Utah Valley United and Orem Youth Soccer has a no refund policy. A player registration fee is established each year to pay for necessary program expenses such as uniforms, team equipment, field equipment and maintenance, league administrative support, accident reimbursement plan, liability insurance, State Office administration and national USYS dues. UYSA leagues are authorized to set their own registration fees, subject to approval by their District Committee. The fee charged by the State Office for administration shall be uniform for all members throughout the State. The Board of Directors at their discretion can offer incoming leagues lower fees for a limited time. In rare situations, we may refund. Only the league president or the authorized agent that collects the registration fees, can authorize a refund of any or all of the registration fees. Neither the district nor the state has the authority to change the league president's decision. If a decision is made to refund, the UYSA and convenience fees are never refunded.
