DISCLAIMER
Schererville Soccer Clubs’ Recreational (In-House) and Rec+ (Travel) programs are outdoor sports and there may be practices and games that get canceled due to the weather and field conditions. This is beyond our control and our priority is the kid’s safety. In the event that games are canceled, we’ll do what we can to reschedule or makeup games during a practice time. Extending the season is unlikely due to school calendars, summer/winter vacations, weather and coordinating with other groups that have scheduled use of the parks with the town. No refunds will be given unless the season needs to be canceled.
