House Soccer Program – Fall 2017
- Firm Registration Deadline: August 23rd. Players will be placed on a wait list after this date. Because teams need to be formed and schedules finalized, there will be no exceptions to this policy.
- Enhanced Schedule. Games will be played on Saturdays, but there will be an additional practice session held Wednesdays. Games and practices will be held at either the Orchard Park Soccer Complex at 6909 Milestrip Road in Orchard Park or the Baker Road School fields at 3340 Baker Road at the following times:
Grade Saturday Games Wednesday Practice K - 1st Grade 11:00am - 12:00pm 5:30 - 6:15 pm 2nd - 3rd Grade 12:30 - 1:45 pm 6:15 - 7:00 pm 4th - 5th Grade 12:30 - 2:00 pm 5:30 - 6:15 pm 6th - 8th Grade 10:30 - 12:00pm 6:15 - 7:00 pm
- Improved Coaching. We have instituted a standardized and proven coaching curriculum that will expedite player development, and provide a framework of weekly practice plans. These plans will be simple to follow, even for parents with no coaching experience, and the club will provide guidance as needed. The House program cannot function without parent volunteers; coaching is easy to learn and rewarding – please consider coaching your child’s team!
- New Coaching Benefit. Any parent who volunteers and is selected to be the Head Coach for their child’s team will receive a full refund of the registration fee. Click here to read the terms and conditions in order to receive the full refund.
TEAM ROSTERS Due to the high amount of requests we receive for players to be on the same team and in an effort to make teams as even as possible, players may not request to be on the same team as another player or particular coach. As everyone plays in one common location, requests to play with friends/cousins or for carpooling reasons cannot be honored.
Any requests to play in a higher or lower division should be submitted by email to our Coaching Director, Dave Kreger, at housecoaching@orchardparkso
Siblings may request to be on the same team IF they fall within the same age group. They must be registered and paid through the same account.
Coaches will also get to coach their own child(ren) along with ONE other player request. If you are interested in your child being on the same team as another child, please sign up to coach when you register your child.

The emphasis of the house program is on development of basic soccer skills. Previous knowledge of soccer is not necessary. All children play at least 50% of every game. Beginners are welcome in all age groups.
The house program runs in both the spring and fall. The school grade based divisions are: K – 1st grade, 2nd – 3rd grade, 4th – 5thgrade, 6th – 8th grade. All teams are co-ed.
Payments must be made in full for players to be placed on a team. (Our focus is for the kids to play, so if you are in need of financial assistance please let us know. Everything is kept confidential).
The fall program typically runs from early September until late October. Registration occurs in July. Games are held on Saturday with practices on Wednesdays. The final week of games is typically held indoors at Sahlens Sports Park.
The spring program typically runs from May through June. Registration occurs in February/March. Games and practices are held on Friday evenings for K – 1st grade and 2nd – 3rd grade groups. Games for the 4th – 5th grade, 6th – 8th grade groups are held on Saturdays. Practices for all age groups will be held on Wednesdays.
This soccer club is run completely by volunteers. Please consider coaching a team! The club provides training and support.
