HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED?
Teams will be formed similar to how they have been formed at each age level previously, player evaluation/tryouts in May (U8 and above).
X-League U8 - U10 teams will be local to their communities/Regions with players placed on teams.
U11 - U19 teams will be formed off the basis of Premier Teams, and then filter down to local regionalized teams.
We will form Premier teams comprised of players from all regions to compete at higher levels of play. These teams will be based across all regions.
HOW MANY TEAMS WILL THERE BE?
The number of teams in each age group will be based on overall numbers in that given age group. Our goal is for all players to have a place to play at their best skill level.
WHERE WILL WE PRACTICE AND PLAY GAMES?
Teams will train and play games at the UAFC Soccer Complex in Lehi. All Home games will be played here as well with an occasional game played at Olympic Park or Lehi high School.

WHAT ARE REFUND AND TRANSFER POLICIES?
REFUNDS: Utah Arsenal FC forms new teams immediately after tryouts each year. Utah Arsenal FC fees are based on the commitments made by players/parents at this time. Registration is due at the time of commitment to a team immediately after tryouts regardless of when the playing season begins (as in the case of high school age girls who play spring season only). Players are expected to make a full year commitment to Utah Arsenal FC once a player is registered (June 2021 through May 2022) and includes all club, standard and additional team fees for the entire year. A player will not be placed on a team until all necessary paperwork and/or fees are paid. No refunds will be issued on any Utah Arsenal FC fees once a player has committed to and registered for a team (June 10, 2021 or after). This NO REFUND policy allows Utah Arsenal FC to honor the financial commitments made to our coaching staff as well as guarantee the viability of each team.
TRANSFERS:UYSA has a very strict transfer policy which states players may only transfer into and out of a club between November 15th and January 15th. Based on this policy, Utah Arsenal FC will only transfer players into and out of Utah Arsenal FC during this time. If a player decides to leave a Utah Arsenal FC team, NO REFUNDS will be issued. Full year team fees must be paid before a player will be released from Utah Arsenal FC. Players may transfer between Utah Arsenal FC teams at any time of the year.
