BLACK WATCH PREMIER BURLINGTON TEAM PROFILES


Black Watch Premier Burlington promotes character, insight, creativity, and integrity. The sport of soccer is all about teamwork, unity, commitment, and dedication.

Our goal is to build the best process that embodies the spirit and rhythm of the game combined with competition and cutting-edge preparation. 


BW players are required to pay a Registration Fee and a Team Account Fee. The registration fee covers all of the coaching and facilities fees for the Winter and Spring sessions. Sent directly to the “parent” Black Watch Soccer Club in Albany, the registration fee can be paid all at once up front or with a deposit and three installments. 

The team account fee varies by team and covers all of the Vermont Soccer League (VSL) games, referee fees, tournament fees and equipment.

Team account payments are managed locally and can be a one-time payment or broken down into two payments.
