FO5SL: Welcome


Welcome to the website for the Fairfax Over-50 Soccer League (FO5SL). 

Now entering our 4th year! 

That's FO5SL, not FOSSIL.

We are based in northern Virginia and are dedicated to providing the opportunity to play the beautiful game to players over the age of 50.

We strive to play a competitively balanced game with sufficient player restraint that allows us all to go to work the next morning.

We play full-field 11 v 11 with paid licensed referees. 

We have just added a 6th team, and we are always looking for new players to fill out teams or to begin a new one.

We have permits to use Fairfax County fields. During the Spring 2015 permit season, we will schedule 3 games per week at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm: Mondays at Arrowbrook Park (Herndon), and Wednesdays and Fridays at Centreville High School Practice Field (Clifton).  These are fields with an artificial surface and lighting for night games.

Player dues cover the costs of the fields, professional referees, and other expenses. The dues are paid to the league and usually come to under $6/game.  New players are required to buy a team jersey ($20). Fees are subject to change as costs change.  Dues are being collected for the Spring 2015 season and are $60. We are applying for membership with MDCVSA this year.  More to come.

Fairfax Over 50 Soccer League-Spring 2015



The worst winter in how many years? Glad it is over. Now on to warmer weather eh?

 

This starts our 4th year as an independent league.  This all started 7 years ago with a one-time over 50 game. Since it was so much fun we all decided we should do it again and we did…one year later. Then we played monthly, then weekly, then through another league and finally on our own with 4 (now 6) teams. We are continuing to grow and add new members.

 

The Spring 2015 schedule is up and on the web site, it runs from March through May.  We don’t have any games during the first week in March to allow the snow cover to melt.

If it melts soon enough we will use the time for open scrimmages.

 

Our permits for the Spring season have us at Arrowbrook park in Herndon at 8pm on Mondays and at Centreville High School at 8pm on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Check the schedule on the website for your team’s games.

Winter 2014-15 Starting

Winter 2014-15 Update.

 

Congratulations on a successful Fall season to all.  It is only through the enthusiasm and love of the game of our players that we continue to grow and thrive!  Thank you all!

 

The playoffs for Fall showed how are teams are improving and how much parity there truly is between all sides.  The finals featured Sparks against Sex Pistols in the first finals for Sex Pistols against perennial winners Sparks.  Sparks scored first with Six Pistols getting an equalizer before the half. The deciding goal was a PK for a foul in the box. The score ended 2-1 with the championship going to Six Pistols. 

 

Congratulations to Six Pistols.

 

Well played by all teams.

 

 

 

Going into our Winter 2014-15 season please look to the schedule on this website as it is slightly more complicated than it has been in the past.  We will schedule games for Mon, Tue or Wed night and use Fri nights for scrimmages or re-scheduled games.

 

Looking forward to a great Winter season!
