A: The period when practices for the Soccer Club begin will be listed on the home page. Individual practice schedules will be passed along by the Coaches when they contact their players with Team Info, Practices/Games times/dates during the two week period before the season starts. Practices begin 2 weeks before the first game, weather permitting. Practice is held twice a week in the evening between 4-7:45 pm (the last practice ends at 7:45 pm). The exact weekdays and times for each player will be determined as the teams are created and assigned to the coaches. This is typically completed no later than two weeks prior to the season start. Practices are 45 to 75 minutes long depending on the age group. Youngest practice the shortest time.


Q: When are the games?

Q: How much is the Travel Registration fee?

A: Travel Registration fee is $125.00 wo/UNIFORM, $160.00 w/UNIFORM


Q: Can I register if I don't live in Schererville?

A: Anyone can register. The Schererville Soccer Club does not have any residency restrictions or out-of-district fees.


Q: I have a Special Request. Where do I notify the club about it?
A: When registering your child for soccer you will see white boxes that ask any open ended question such as allergies, physical conditions, etc.  Due to the size of the Club, we can no longer take requests on teams, coaches, practice dates, etc.  However, we are always open to special conditions/situations that may arise, so please email the club with those conditions/situations to speak with a board member or commissioner.    

Q: I missed the registration deadline, can you make an exception?
A: We want all kids to be able to play soccer, but we have to work on a tight schedule. Teams must be created, Rosters built, Practices scheduled, Games scheduled AND Uniforms have a long lead time so they must be ordered weeks before a season begins.  Any addition after the Teams are built requires moving players to balance teams and delays the ordering of jerseys. Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Moms must also be found. We are a club of Volunteers and we are always in need of Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Moms. Without enough Volunteers some teams would be overfilled and then the playing time per child would need to be reduced so that each child would get a turn playing in a game.

Q: Can I make a Special Request?
A: The club is no longer accepting any special requests. 

Q: What is the refund policy?
A: No refunds after Refund Deadline Date on the Registration Page. After that time, a credit for a future registration MAY be given on a case by case basis. All refunds/credits requested will be less a $10 processing fee. If a uniform was ordered, refund will also be less $15 for the uniform. No exceptions.

Q: The site says there are no available programs for my child - what do I do now?
A: This means that registration has closed or that your son/daughter is not eligible to participate based on birth date or gender requirements set by the organization.
This will also happen if your cart has a program in it from a previous attempt. You can look at your account page and check the Cart to see if there are any items in it. (see image)  Note: Sometimes this will happen if the child's birth date is set incorrectly. You can check this by going to your account screen by clicking on My Account and then clicking on Edit Player Info next to your child's name. (See "How can I edit any of my account or participant information?")
