Black Diamond FC Joins USA

Fellow members of the Utah Soccer Alliance family, please read through this email, as well as the attachment;

USA-BDFC Press Release-Membership

We are pleased to announce, Black Diamond FC has joined the Utah Soccer Alliance (USA) family.  The merger of Utah Soccer Alliance and Black Diamond FC will bring more opportunities to players, coaches, and teams, as we join together and move forward into a bright and successful future.

The attached press release of the merger has been sent to Utah Youth Soccer Association (UYSA) and will be emailed to the general public later this week.

Beginning with the Spring 2016 season, the merger will be implemented, as follows;

  • The current Black Diamond FC teams will be renamed and known as Black Diamond FC USA or Black Diamond USA.
  • Coaches will gain the ability to Club pass and share players between the current BDFC and USA teams.  This will provide more opportunity for players to move between teams and play, based on their needs, as well the needs of each team.

Beginning with the next tryouts cycle, May/June 2016;

  • The Black Diamond FC teams will be known as ‘USA’ teams, while continuing to participate and play in the downtown Salt Lake Metro area.
  • These teams will hold tryouts for all age groups.  The tryout, training, and game fields will remain the same; Rowland Hall, East HS, Highland HS, West HS.
  • The teams will wear the current Adidas branded, USA uniforms kits.  More details will become available closer to tryouts.
  • Future player registration will be with Utah Soccer Alliance.

Please feel free to contact us directly, ask questions, and share your thoughts with the USA Executive Board of Directors at tonight’s Annual General Meeting.  We are incredibly excited for the future!
 
Go USA!

2016 USA Annual General Meeting

Greetings parents, players, coaches, and members of the USA Board of Directors,

The upcoming 2016 USA Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held from 7-8:30pm on Monday, March 28th at the CR Hamilton Pavilion, 13800 S 3700 W, Riverton, UT.

Your attendance and participation is requested, encouraged, and will be greatly appreciated.

The major events of the evening will be;

  1. The annual State of the Club address.
  2. Announcement of notable Club achievements.
  3. Presentation of Miguel A. Nunez scholarship award recipients.
  4. Acknowledgement of USA Comp ‘Coach of the Year’ award recipients.
  5. Recognition of USA Board members leaving their position for other opportunities.
  6. Introduction of newly appointed USA Advisory Board members.

Unfortunately, the previously announced election of Parent Representatives, to the Executive Board of Directors, was made in error.  And it was solely my error, the USA bylaws were revised, June 2015, changing the position of Parent Representative to a 2 year term.

Once the official USA Club annual business has concluded, we will change the meeting to a less formal format, encouraging interactive discussions.  We will plan to address individual concerns, address specific questions, and be available for discussions with members of the USA Club.

Thank you,
-Dick Kunz, Jr.
