Since 1972, we have provided a no hassle environment for competitive travel soccer teams, and now offer a recreational league 


The Virginia Independent Soccer Team Association (VISTA) and Virginia Blackwatch Soccer Club (VBSC) was founded on the philosophy of providing the necessary structure for teams to organize, train, and compete as they like -- and then getting out of their way to let them achieve success.  This formula has worked for countless coaches, players and teams, who recognize that if you already possess top coaching and player talent, you don't need the overhead and burden of a big club and its ensuing politics. 

Over the years, VISTA\VBSC has contributed to the development of countless outstanding players.  Our teams have won numerous championships, with many individual players earning accolades, having successful high school careers, and going on to play in college.  Some of our past accomplishments include:

  • Numerous NCSL and WAGS D1 Championships
  • Twelve Virginia State Cup Championships
  • One Regional Championship
  • One National Champion and another fourth (4th) at Nationals
  • Numerous players selected for District, State and Regional ODP
  • Placement of 25+ players into top college programs, including:
  • ACC:  Virginia Tech, Clemson, NC State
  • Ivy:  Yale, Princeton
  • Military Academies:  USMA, USNA
  • Other:  William & Mary, James Madison, East Carolina
