  • How are kids placed on teams?
    Players will be placed on teams by individual age group coordinators. Age group coordinators will try to form teams locally (nearby schools), however this is not guaranteed. The age group coordinator will do their best to honor buddy requests as long as there are enough spots available on the team. Those who register early have a higher chance of their request being honored, however no buddy request is guaranteed.
  • What if I only want to play soccer in the Spring?
    OYS Session Options are: Fall/Spring Session: This includes both the fall and spring seasons. Spring Only Session: This includes the spring only season. The costs are the same whether your player plays one season or both seasons. The fees required to play do not vary for one season or two seasons, therefore the cost is not reduced if your player plays in the Spring only session.
  • Can I get a refund on my registration?
    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.
  • My kid is a great soccer player! What options do I have?
    Play Up You can request to have your player play up a year (they will play on a team with older players). If you choose to do this, please email Ken at keng@oremyouthsoccer.com. Please keep in mind that players can only play up one year. For example, a five-year-old (U6) can play with the (U7-U8), but a four-year-old (U5) cannot play with the U7-U8 players. UVU Juniors Orem Youth Soccer has created a new young coed program to challenge and develop those players who are already excelling. Starting in Fall 2022, U7-U8 players will have the opportunity to tryout for this program. Practices will be more intense and coaches are held to a higher standard than recreation. Playing at the District and State levels will also help your child improve their abilities as they play at higher levels.
