FIFTY F.C. Club Announces 2019 - 2020 Travel Team Tyouts/Evaluations
FIFTY Football Club was formed between the merger of Burnt Hills United and Highland Soccer Club. It is a local, volunteer run, not for profit organization serving the youth of our community. The purpose of the club is to operate both a noncompetitive REC and a competitive travel soccer program. FIFTY F.C. has the privilege of providing our young athletes with the opportunity to build a foundation of respect and dedication to the sport of soccer. The clubs goal it that our players learn the values of hard work, respect, honesty, dedication to team, self-control and sportsmanship all while building a positive self-esteem.
Player assessments for the travel teams will be held in late June and early July. Younger teams are formed in August. Older teams are formed in October. The outdoor fall travel season begins in early September and runs through October. Indoor practices and games start in November and run through April. The spring travel season begins in late April and runs through June.
U8 Coed Teams (Birth Year: 2012, 2013, 2014) - Our U8 level is intended to teach the basics of the game in a fun and friendly environment. The U8 age group does not play travel in the fall. Teams will train once a week. Parents have the option to participate in competitive indoor games through the winter and outdoor games in the spring. Indoor games are played at the Sportsplex of Halfmoon.
U10 Boys and U10 Girls (Birth Years 2010, 2011) – Our U10 levels include instruction, skill building and game play. Our teams are trained in an academy style starting in the fall. Teams have the option to participate in fall outdoor games, winter indoor games, spring outdoor games and tournaments. Team roster size is limited to 16 players. The numbers of teams formed are based on amount of players participating.
U12 Boys and U12 Girls (Birth Years 2008, 2009) – At this level we understand players are looking for a more competitive play. Teams will be formed based on skill. Participation at practice and games is at a higher commitment than our younger ages. Practices will be held twice a week and teams have the option to participate in fall outdoor games, winter indoor games, spring outdoor games and tournaments. Team roster size is limited to 18 players. Numbers of teams formed are based on amount of players participating.

The U14 – U18 age groups do not play travel in the fall since most players are on school teams. It is expected players will participate in both practices and games. Teams will be formed based on skill. Team roster sizes are limited to 22 players. We typically only field 1 team at these levels.
