Impact United is generally located in the Highland, Skyline, , East, Olympus and Cottonwood High School geographic areas. Our game fields are located throughout these neighborhoods. Game fields are determined by field size and player age group. In younger age groups where we have several divisions, we make every effort to schedule games in close proximity to the teams’ geographic area. Older teams will play on fields located throughout the Impact United community.
Impact will provide all practice equipment, including a ball to use while practicing. It is highly encouraged for each player to have their own ball to do at-home training, but it is not required to bring for practices or games. The player will need to provide their own soccer cleats and shin gaurds, along with practice wear and game uniforms. Game uniforms are purchased separate from the main program fees.

Q. What is the game cancelation policy for weather?
A. RECREATION GAMES WILL NOT BE CANCELLED FOR RAIN, unless lightning is present. We encourage playing through light rain or cold weather conditions. We recommend you attend your games with the intent of playing, and then if the rain becomes heavier or does not abate you may consider abandoning the game with mutual consent of both coaches. It is the policy of Impact United Soccer Club to cancel any game or practice at the FIRST sign of LIGHTNING. If there is enough snow accumulation that prevents the lines from being seen at your game field, the game is automatically cancelled. In some cases we have agreed to not to play at certain venues if the ground is extremely wet. We will advise you if your game is at one of those locations. If you don’t hear from us, your game is on. For any other reasons to cancel a game, both coaches must mutually agree. If a game is canceled, the coaches must notify the Referee Assignor for your age group /field at least one hour prior to game time so the referees can be contacted. The Referee Assignor’s Name and Phone Number is listed on the Schedule Page for your Age Group. There will be no rescheduled games.
Q. How are team pictures & awards handled?
A. Generally, team pictures are taken during the spring season. “Fall only” teams will have pictures taken during the fall season. Impact United provides one team photo for each player. If additional photos are desired, individual players may order directly from the photographer. See our Picture Schedule and Order Form for more information.
- Player Registration fees includes the basic picture package. Please make team pictures a priority so each player can have the promised package. The photographer will have team rosters at picture time. Players not on the roster will not be in the team picture. Please insure the team roster is accurate to avoid discrepancies and disappointment.
- Pictures and Awards are handed out by coaches during the spring season. If coaches cannot pick up pictures, they will need to arrange to pick them up directly from the photographer. Pictures and Awards should be distributed to the team following the last game of the season.
