Why Do I Need to Join UHSAA and SUOA

The UHSAA is the governing body over high school athletics in Utah. The organization provides rules clinics, certifying tests, background checks, and other statewide policies and procedures. The UHSAA requires membership in and works with local associations. The SUOA is a local association that provides rules and mechanic trainings, meetings, game evaulations, rankings, and local policies and procedures.
