  3. Volunteer coaches are invaluable to our program, but may not request a player's placement that is contrary to the Sporting Omaha FC Registration Policies.

  4. If more players request a change of team than openings are available on that team, the date of registration will be used for placement.

  5. Players who did not play the prior season who have a request will be placed on their requested team only if an opening is available.

  6. Players who did not play the prior season and do not have a special request will be placed on a team with an opening; closest school proximity available.

U8-U10 Academy & U11-U18 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:

 

  • The injury must be reported to the team coach AND DoC within 7 days of the initial incident.

  • 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 timeframe
     

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 aside from those mentioned above will qualify for a refund.
