which are in June each year. Your player agreement is a 10-month commitment to play for the same team including both fall and spring, and possibly indoor soccer or futsal, depending on what the team and coach decide together.

Games are typically played at one of three locations – Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex (OPSC), Swope Soccer Village (SSV) and Heritage Soccer Park (HSP). Maps and directions are further down the page.

Practice locations for competitive teams are assigned by Overland Park Soccer Club by working with your coach. Many of the locations include many of the area school district fields and local parks as well as Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex (OPSC) and Indian Hills Middle School. Both OP Soccer Complex & Indian Hills are turf fields and all division 1-3 teams had access to turf in 2017.
