The Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) Executive Committee is making a stand against sportsmanship issues in the sport of Boys’ Soccer.
In a meeting June 8, the Executive Committee voted to place the sport of Boys’ Soccer on probation due to a rise in ejections related to unsportsmanlike conduct, removing two games from the sport’s contest limitations. UHSAA programs will now have 14 allowable contests, down from 16 contests.
The sport will remain on probation for the next three years, with the Executive Committee conducting an annual review of the sport’s progress in improving sportsmanship issues. The UHSAA will have no further comment on the reduction of contests.
