The Outdoor Recreational Program strives to instruct the youth of Orland Park in the skills and team-oriented atmosphere that is soccer. The rules and regulations that have been put in place allowing members to experience all positions at all age levels while allowing members to excel at positions that augment their individual skill set.
This year OPSC will be operating under the Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) guidelines which govern field size and the number of players on each team. For more information, visit the IYSA site at http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/aboutus/illinoisyouthsoccerassociation/.
All programs are open to Boys and Girls.
AT NO TIME are Competitive Players eligible for any Recreational Programs.
Registration open in early May (see Important Dates on homepage).
In-person or form-based registration is no longer being supported.
Registration is open to all Orland Park Soccer Club Recreational Players currently in the 1st through 12th Grades.
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.
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.
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.
See the button in the left margin of our home page.
Divisions will be developed based upon interest level in each grade pairing.
If you are having difficulty with the online registration pages, please ensure that any form of pop-up blocking is disabled on your Internet Browser. Best results are achieved when Internet Explorer v5.x or later is used.
The Yearly Family Fee, which applies to one Outdoor and one Indoor season per soccer year (June 30th to July 1st), covers the replacement of nets, corner flags and other costs not associated with individual program costs at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
The Non-Resident Fee is mandated by the Village of Orland Park.
Proof of Residency is verified by the Village of Orland Park water bill number that is entered by the registrant. If the water bill account number provided by the registrant 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 the end of the Late Registration period, all fees paid will be refunded.
Registrants that have a Non-Resident Program Card issued by the Village of Orland Park will be given an opportunity to enter the card expiration date at the time of registration to waive the Non-Resident Fee.
NOTE: The Non-Resident Program Card expiration date provided at the time of registration must be valid during the entire program time frame (April through November). If the card expiration date entered expires during this period, the registrant's account will be assessed the Non-Resident rate.
Multiplayer discounts are not being offered.
All fees subject to change without notice and at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
Registrations are non-refundable. If you withdraw from the program, your fees are considered a donation to our not-for-profit organization.
