We are moving to the Ogden or Layton area this summer due to a job relocation from Corpus Christi, Tx. We are familiar with the area (we own a small place in Eden) and love all the outdoor activities that the Ogden, Utah area offers.

However, we have two daughters, one going into 8th grade and the other into the 10th grade. Both have been playing soccer since they were four years old.

We are having a challenging time deciding which high school to select (therefore which area to purchase a home in). We plan on buying a house on the east side of Ogden/Layton for quick mountain access (I can't wait for all the great hiking and mtn. biking opportunities!) . We may rent for the first year to get a better feel of the area.

Can someone "in-the-know" please offer advice on high schools and soccer programs (both club and school). Does anybody know when the tryouts are for both club and school? Private school is not out of the question.

Thanks,
Scott

These would be my top 3 picks if I were choosing a high school located along the Ogden bench in Weber County:

1. Weber High School, located in North Ogden. It is a public high school in the Weber School District and it has a competitive girls soccer team. It's teams play at the 5A level against the largest schools in the state. It serves student from North Ogden, Pleasant View, and the Ogden Valley.

2. St Josephs, a Catholic high school in Ogden. Their sports teams play against smaller schools at the 1A level.

3. Bonneville High, located in Washington Terrace is a public high school, in the Weber School District. It serves students from South Ogden, Washington Terrace, Its teams play at the 4A level.

I would avoid the Ogden School District, which serves students in Ogden City and includes Ogden High and Ben Lomond. I can't comment on the Davis County schools.

Both Ogden High School and Ben Lomond are good High Schools and have soccer teams.

And both have some fantastic teachers.

Forgot to mention Utah Avalanche, an elite national club for girls. Competitive tryouts are coming up at the end of May.
