Schops started out with Belgian club Lommel. In 1996, he joined Dutch side Roda JC, where he won the KNVB Cup in his first season, scoring in the final. During the second half of the 1997–98 season, he was loaned out to fellow Eredivisie team RKC Waalwijk, and in the summer of 1998, he made a permanent transfer to the club. In October 2000, Schops was loaned out to RBC Roosendaal for the remainder of the season, as his services were no longer needed at RKC Waalwijk. He subsequently had short periods playing for FC Zwolle (Eredivisie) and FC Den Bosch (Eerste Divisie) before leaving the Netherlands for Verbroedering Geel in his home country. In 2005, he moved to Germany, where he played in the lower leagues.
