Why should I play UVUEM District Level Soccer?


The second level of soccer is District Competition. It is a part of the Utah Valley Competition League (UVCL). This is more competitive soccer and includes children ages 8-16. Typically the players are more skilled, faster, and more aggressive and play harder than in the Recreation program.




How are UVUEM District teams formed?


District Competition teams are formed by volunteer coaches and through a tryout process. Not everyone makes a team at this level, as it is dependent on the number of coaches coaching at this level as well as roster spots available. Typically, District coaches are more than just parents filling in; they are committed to teaching the kid’s soccer and taking them to a higher level. Many of them are licensed coaches through training courses available through US Soccer’s national training curriculum; however, licensing is not required at this level. Coaches select players for their teams at tryouts. Ultimately the decision is yours if multiple coaches select your player for their teams. You should ask questions and feel comfortable with the coach and team. Because positions on teams are limited, it can be competitive to make a district level team. If your player is not selected for a team then you can opt to become a coach for your child to play at this level. Coaches are instructed to contact the players whom they want for their team within 3 days. If your child comes to tryouts, we will try and place them on a team.




When are tryouts?


2021 UVUEM Tryouts dates are May 24 - June 4, 2021. Contact the VP of Competition for further questions.

What will the UVUEM District game and practice schedule be like?


District Teams typically have 1-2 games per week and 1-2 practices per week. Away games may be played anywhere in Utah County. Practice times and locations are determined individually by each coach.




Is there equal play time at UVUEM District Level?


There is no equal time rule in District Competition. We do encourage coaches to let each player play at least half the game. Each coach is different on how they decide playing time and starting role, but typically if your player makes all the practices, works hard and is committed, they will see adequate playing time. Most coaches have to juggle this issue carefully.

Can I get a refund on my UVUEM District registration?


UVUEM and EMYS 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.
