Select Girls

Ages: U11-U19

The most notable benefit of this program is the pooling of players, i.e. matching players with other players of similar ability. This creates a competitive training environment where players challenge one another and develop in the process. Registering the various teams with the most suitable leagues is an important part of this process from a player-parent satisfaction point of view.

 

Our Competitive program starts at U11 and runs through U19. At U13 our Premier pathway is introduced. This program is designed for players looking to play at a regional/national level and with interests in collegiate play in the future. Teams for each will be formed through try-outs. Sporting Omaha FC will provide training facilities for these teams. In addition to seasonal training, the select player will participate in winter training at one of the Sporting Omaha FC official training centers. The winter training program will address technical improvement and tactical awareness within small-sided games.

Refund Policies

U8-U10 Academy & U11-U19 Select
In the unfortunate situation that involves a season-ending injury or illness, Sporting Omaha FC will consider a fee reimbursement for the family involved.  This does not include team fees assessed by the team, which should be handled directly with the Coach and Team Manager.  Refunds will only apply to season-ending injuries or illnesses.

The following considerations will be reviewed in determining a refund amount:

  • Forty percent of any fee, seasonal or annual covers fixed Club overhead and is not considered reimbursable

  • Remaining sixty percent of player fees cover variable and ongoing expenses and are considered to be the refundable portion of player fees

  • Determine if the players fee is seasonal or annual (Payment term)

  • If registration fee was an annual fee, total fee will be divided by 2 for under 15 players and above families or by 3 for under 14 and below players, in order to determine the per-season fee charged

  • This amount will be divided by the typical 8 week season and any refund amount will be prorated based on when the player’s injury occurred during that time-frame

 

In order to qualify for a refund, the Club will require a physician’s note stating that the player will be out for the remainder of the season.  The physician’s note should accompany the request for a refund.

Players and families who have received financial assistance from the Club are not eligible for refunds.

The Club will not provide a refund based upon any philosophical, personality, or curriculum issues concerns and no other situations other than those mentioned above will qualify for a refund.
