FO5SL: Welcome


"You don't stop playing because you get old...you get old because you stop playing" 

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

Now entering our 5th 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 are adding a 7th and 8th team this season.  Contact me at the email below if you are interested.  Click on “Handouts” on the menu to download a registration form. If you turn 50 during 2016 you are eligible to play.

We have permits to use Fairfax County fields. During the Spring 2016 permit season, we will schedule 4 games per week at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm: Mondays and Wednesdays at Arrowbrook Park in Herndon, and Wednesdays and Fridays at Centreville High School in Centreville.  These are fields with an artificial surface and lighting for night games.  See the calendar for more information on 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-Summer 2016 season and are $110 – ($130 if you have not played already in 2015-16). We are members of USASA. 

Check the menu on the left to see updated league calendars, scores, standings, and photos, and additional information.
