Welcome To The Burnt Hills United Soccer Club Registration Home Page.
Burnt Hills United Soccer Club is a local, volunteer run, nonprofit organization serving the youth of our community. The purpose of the club is to operate a youth travel soccer club to teach the game of soccer; to help in developing the character of the youth of our community; and to foster and engage in competition for the furtherance of the above purposes at a level higher than recreation. The Club is a member of the Capital District Youth Soccer League (CDYSL), and the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA).
The Club typically sponsors approximately 12 - 15 teams through the indoor and outdoor seasons. Age divisions for both boys and girls range from Under-8 to Under-18.

BHU REC Soccer
The BHU Fall Outdoor Rec Soccer program is designed for entry level players who are looking to work on their soccer skills or just get out and have some fun. The fall outdoor season focuses on learning soccer fundamentals in a non-competitive environment and is for players K-8 grade. This is a great opportunity for new players to the sport to get exposure to the game without committing to more experienced programs and travel teams. Our fall program is also a fun way for our travel players to continue to strengthen their skills before the indoor travel season begins in November. Volunteer coaches are the key to continuing the program. Please consider helping foster young soccer players' love of the game.
