Subject: U15 Team Information for 2018-19
DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS. THIS EMAIL IS SENT ON BEHALF OF email@example.com
IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE U15 (04) TEAMS FOR Seasonal Year 2018-19
For the 2018-2019 seasonal year U15 age group teams will play in the Premier League (PL), State Competition League (SCL) or the Inter Regional League (IRL).
UYSA does NOT offer a provisional league for this age group. U15 teams may not register to play in the U16 provisional league. Individual players may apply for a transfer to play up on a provisional team following the transfer policy.
Teams playing in the Premier League will play a year round schedule comprised of fall games and spring games. Standings from the fall games and spring games are combined for final standings at the end of the spring 2019 competition. The spring 2019 standings are what will be used for Alignment for the U16 season for the next seasonal year. Teams that are high school impacted (have less than 11 players available after high school try-outs) may submit a list of players who have made their respective high school teams to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 6, 2018. UYSA will schedule games for the teams impacted by high school as late in the season as resources allow. Teams should be prepared that games will be scheduled for impacted teams beginning approximately October 15 and may be scheduled to play over UEA weekend. Teams that allow players to play high school and are requesting the schedule accommodation should expect to play multiple games during a week. PL teams are allowed two coach initiated reschedules.
STATE COMPETITION & INTER REGIONAL LEAGUES (SCL & IRL)
Teams in the SCL and IRL are registering for both fall and spring. Registration is for two seasons. The expectation is that teams will compete in both fall and spring. Fees will be collected for the full year. Teams that do not play both seasons will not receive a refund of the League Fee. The results of the high school impacted season will not affect the current alignment as there will be no promotion or relegation based on the fall season for girls or spring season for boys. Teams are expected to play their scheduled games, if a team forfeits more than one game during the high school impacted season they will be dropped a minimum of one division at the next alignment (U16 SY 2019-2020). There will not be medals awarded for the high school impacted season. The U15 age group has 4 roster spots that can be used strictly for club pass players. Teams can and are encouraged to use the high school impacted season to further develop players; such as technical and tactical skills, players in new positions, different team formations, etc.

The purpose of this email is to communicate the reschedule policy and process for the U15 age group. Please make sure that you read the entire email and make sure you understand the information provided. If you have any questions please contact the state office at 801.307.5150
Here are some important points regarding reschedules for the U15 age group:
**Please be aware that State Cup for the U15 Boys will play April 23-May 4**
1. All U15 teams participate in a year round league, meaning there is no relegation and promotion between the fall portion of the schedule and the spring portion of the schedule. Games will start in August and end in May.
2. We realize that the U15 age group may have obstacles not present in other age groups due to the concurrent high school season. For this reason we will be more lenient with reschedules in this age group if reschedule requests are a direct result of players on your team also playing high school soccer.
3. To avoid paying the reschedule fee, teams must
A. Send in a list of players on your team and what high school team they have made. Please send in the Club team name and include the name of each player and name of high school they are playing for.
B. If your club roster drops below 11 players, UYSA will reschedule games from March and April. Games will be rescheduled starting May 1st (playoffs for high school) if the players are not on the varsity team they can return to the club team.
C. Must receive the list of players by August 18th at 8:00am March 5th by end of business (in order to get your UYSA games rescheduled) Email to email@example.com
U15 teams may request other types of reschedules (not high school conflict reschedules) by following the standard reschedule procedure below. The number of these types of reschedules are maxed at 2 and the fee will be applied if requested after the free reschedule date, March 16th.
