Indoor Grade 1 through 12 Highlights...

The Indoor Recreational Program strives to provide the youth of Orland Park with the team-oriented atmosphere associated with the quick pace of Indoor soccer. The rules and regulations that have been put in place allow members to experience all positions at all age levels, while allowing members to excel at positions that augment their individual skill set.

GENERAL

  • Standings will not be kept.
  • OPSC operates under the Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) guidelines which govern field size and the number of players on each team. For complete details, visit them at http://www.iysa.org/.
  • All programs are open to Boys and Girls.
  • It is important to use the same email address for both seasons (Fall/Winter) within the same soccer year, as this is the way in which the registration programs recognize every member. Using different email addresses in the same soccer year for two different seasons will result in the Yearly Family Fee being charged twice, and this fee is not refundable.
  • All participants will receive jerseys, shorts, socks and participation award.
  • If this is your first time participating in the OPSC, we require a birth certificate for age verification. The registration process allows you to upload a copy of your child's birth certificate.
  • Soccer is a contact sport. Please do not register your child for our programs if they are unable to participate in activities that involve contact with other players or equipment.
  • AT NO TIME are Competitive Players eligible for any Recreational Programs.

The Non-Resident Fee is mandated by the Village of Orland Park.

Proof of Residency is checked against the Village of Orland Park water bill number that is entered at the time of registration. If residency cannot be verified against the Village's water bill records, your child will not be placed on a roster. If residency cannot be verified against the Village's water bill records by December 15th, your child will not be placed on a roster. If residency cannot be verified against the Village's water bill records by December 30th, your registration will be deleted and any fees paid will be refunded.  

Registrants that have a current Non-Resident Program Card issued by the Village of Orland Park will be given an opportunity to enter the card expiration date at time of registration to waive the Non-Resident upcharge Fee.

NOTE: The Non-Resident Program Card provided to the OPSC at the time of registration must be valid during the entire program time frame (November through March). If  the card number entered expires during this period, the registrant will be expected to pay the Non-Resident rate.


Multiplayer discounts are not being offered.
