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 a white box on the last page asking about Special Requests. Here you can indicate that you would prefer certain practice times/days, coaches, playing on the same team as a friend, etc.  We will make every attempt possible to accommodate your request, but we cannot guarantee that it can be done.

* If you already registered but forgot to add your request, you can go back into your account and add the request by following the steps below.

Click on  “My Account”

Then click on the edit icon (highlighted yellow in the screen shot below):


Then scroll down to the “Special Requests/Comments” box (only visible for registered players ).
  It’s just above the Jersey – Size:

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: I made a Special Request. Why wasn't I accommodated?
A: We try to accommodate all requests for placing siblings together, putting friends together for car-pooling reasons, scheduling practices at a certain time to fit with work or school schedules, but we are limited to the number of special requests that can be met. We have between 500-700 kids per season with Special Requests from over 75% of them. We simply cannot accommodate all of them. 

Q: What is the refund policy?
A: The last day for refunds is 11:59PM Wednesday July 15th. 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. 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?")
