Utah Premier 2022-23 Team Rosters will be posted online at www.utahpremierbasketball.com by 9pm on Sunday, August 28th.
° National (boys) / Nike (girls) Teams…will compete in high-level local, regional and national
° Select (boys) / Swoosh (girls) Teams…will compete in competitive local and regional events.
° There may be opportunities for Select/Swoosh team players to play in some events with
National/Nike teams based on available roster spots and some extenuating circumstances may
open permanent roster spots on National/Nike teams.
° This is a 12-month commitment for youth team Participants…U9-U14 (Sept-Aug). We
support our players playing other sports, but for players to keep Premier roster spots they must
attend at least one team practice per week and arrange to play in the fall or spring league
during their other sport season. Premier expects full participation from players during the
winter season (Nov-Mar). Premier offers three practice sessions a week for youth teams...two
90-minute team practices and one 60-minute skill/small-sided games session. National/Nike team players are REQUIRED to attend the skills sessions. Select/Swoosh team players are welcome to attend the skills session, but it is not required for them.
° This is a 6-month commitment for HS team Participants…U15-U17 (Mar-Aug). We support
our players playing other sports, but for players to keep Premier roster spots they must attend at
least one team practice per week and arrange to play in the spring tournaments during their other sport season. Premier expects full participation from players during July. Premier offers two 90-minute team practices per week in Mar-May…then skills sessions in June and training camp before July events.
° Premier cannot hold roster spots without participation. Premier will not deactivate a player's
account until another player registers for that roster spot; however, Premier staff are not responsible to seek out or advertise for an open roster spot if a player chooses to leave his/her Premier team prior to August 15, 2023.
° Players share the cost of event fees and coaches travel fees...even if they do not attend the event.
° Premier has built in several club vacation dates throughout the year. We ask that Participants try
to work within those club vacation dates for family travel. U14 travel teams need to be available for the entire month of March (training) and July (tournaments). Advance notice and discussion of non-attendance to league games and/or tournaments is critical to our planning.
