FUSC offers a recreational, in-town, intramural soccer program and a travel soccer program as a member of the Boston Area Youth Soccer league. Both programs run for 10 weeks per season. The fall soccer season generally begins the first Saturday after Labor Day weekend. The spring season usually begins the second Saturday of April. High School, U16 and U18, age teams are organized only in the spring. U16 and U18 roster spots are not guaranteed. Players are recruited by the U16 and U18 coaches.
IN TOWN INTRAMURALPROGRAM
FUSC offers a recreational in-town soccer option each fall and spring for the Under 6 (U6), U8 and U10 age groups. The U12 program has an intramural boys program in the fall only. All other U12 players may participate as walk-ons in the BAYS division 4 travel program, as space allows or attend tryouts for travel team placement. The emphasis of the in town intramural program is on having fun and learning the skills of soccer. Players are assigned to teams and have weekday practices and games on Saturdays. Games are played on a variety of soccer fields around Framingham. Players will be notified of their team and practice times by their assigned volunteer coach a week before the season begins. There are separate leagues for boys and girls (except the U6, Pre-K and K age group, which is combined boys and girls). The in-town intramural soccer program operates for 10 weeks.
FUSC is a member of the BAYS League, Boston Area Youth Soccer. BAYS currently has 47 member towns and is one of the 'town' leagues recognized by MYSA, Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association. BAYS offers two, 10 week seasons, one in the fall and one in the spring. BAYS has four travel divisions. and multiple age divisions including U10, U12 and U14 BAYS games are played on Saturdays in the fall and spring. U16 and U18 teams play on Sundays and play in the spring season only, to avoid conflicts with the High School teams. The standard schedule has girls playing in the morning and boys in the afternoon. Teams play five home games and five away games each season. Travel team players are also expected to participate in tournaments, typically on Labor Day, Columbus Day and Memorial Day weekends. Travel team players are expected to make a full year commitment(fall and spring). Winter soccer programs are highly recommended but are not affiliated with FUSC.
FUSC holds travel team tryouts for the Under 10 (U10) through Under 14 (U14) age groups during May/June for the next soccer year. The typical player (based on age eligibility) will be in the spring of their 2nd grade (U8) year when they are eligible to tryout for the first time for U10 (Fall 3rd grade). Not all players attending tryouts may be selected to travel. Players are typically contacted by July 1st with the results of the tryout process. Players remain with the same travel team for the entire soccer year, fall and spring.FUSC PO Box 1964 Framingham MA 01703
