Competition - State Level
State level leagues are intended for teams that are seeking the highest level of competition. These teams have the opportunity to play against the best competition in the state of Utah during the season and will often showcase their technical and tactical development in tournaments all over the country.
Eagle Mountain Youth Soccer is a 100% volunteer organization. Coaches and Team Managers are volunteer parents of players on each team. If you are interested in forming a team click the above link.

State 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.
State coaches are more than just parents filling in; they are committed to teaching the kid’s soccer and taking them to a higher level. State coaches are required to be licensed coaches through training courses available through US Soccer’s national training curriculum.
Coaches select players for their teams at tryouts. Because positions on teams are limited, it can be competitive to make a state level team. Coaches are instructed to send offer letters to players whom they want for their team within 2 days.
Season Start/Game locations
The season starts the third or fourth week of March or the third or fourth week of August.
Home games will be held at Cory Wride Memorial Park Away games may be played anywhere in Utah County, possibly Vernal and/or Heber. State Teams typically have 1-2 games per week and 1-2 practices per week. Practice times and locations are determined individually by each coach.
The Age Matrix is set up by US Youth Soccer and Utah Youth Soccer Association. Players will be placed on teams based on the year they are born. Players may play up one year if desired.
All players are required to have shin guards. Cleats are recommended but not required. Toe cleats and metal cleats are not allowed. If not wearing cleats closed toe shoes are required. Players may not play with anything officials deem to be dangerous to themselves or others. This includes but is not limited to jewelry, watches, hats, casts, illegal shoes or illegal cleats.
