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. Teams that allow players to play high school and are requesting the schedule accommodation may be required 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. There will not be a realignment (promotion or relegation) based on the high school impacted season, (fall season for girls, 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. 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.
