Welcome to Western New York's leading Soccer Club for Player Development!

Black Watch NY West Soccer Announces Winter Academy

Black Watch NY West Soccer, Western NY’s leader in player development... is proud to announce its 2014/2015 Winter Academy Program.

The Black Watch NY West Academy Program is an Elite Level skill development program instructed by accomplished Black Watch Staff Coaches. The program is specifically designed to identify and correct potential technical weaknesses, improve and develop each player's qualities, and most importantly... develop the player's confidence to compete at a higher level. The curriculum is based on developing the overall player and teaches players to solve problems in all areas of the field. Through our constantly updated curriculum we can ensure that attending players receive the most up-to-date technical training available.

Each Academy player will experience the latest trends in running, balance and coordination training; technical applications of the game through constant repetition and dynamic movements.  We are precise in our curriculum and we are demanding. Players gain a sense of confidence and also leave with a clear plan to control their own personal development in the years ahead.

u19 Boys Arsenal Crowned State Cup Champions

The Black Watch Premier-Buffalo u19 Boys Arsenal pulls off a State Cup Championship on goal differential.  The Arsenal, United FC and Lancaster FC all finished the weekend 2-1 and 6 points.  With the Arsenal knowing that only a 2-0 win or better on the final day vs Lancaster FC would give them the championship, they came through and got the victory with the much needed score of 2-0.  Through the tie-braking procedure the Arsenal advance to the Regioal Championship on a +5 Goal differential.  United FC finished with a +4 while Lancaster FC finished +3.  The Arsenal will now head to Kingston, Rhode Island June 26 - July 1 for the 2014 US Youth Soccer Region I Championships.


The u18 Girls Saints and u19 Girls Jags saw their State Cup hopes dashed on the final day finishing runners up.  The Saints needed a win on the final day but unfortunately found themselves in a tie and a second place finish.  The Jags needed a 2-0 win to secure their third straight State Cup Championship, but were only able to end the final game with a 1-0 win.

Most memorable Black Watch moment: My most memorable Black Watch moment was winning State Cup in 2012. That was the first time I had ever been to State Cup and the Empire Academy team was supposed to win the championship. We ended up beating them 5-1 as well as beating all of the other teams. Overcoming adversity with my team mates and lifting the cup for the first time is a moment I am never going to forget!

Most memorable Non Black Watch Soccer moment: My most memorable soccer moment was playing in the 2013 High School All-American game. 44 girls from across the country met in North Carolina to play in this game. It was a great experience being able to meet and play with girls who share the same passion for soccer as I do.

Favorite thing about Black Watch? My favorite thing about Black Watch is the passion for soccer everyone part of this club has. From players to coaches, it is evident how much soccer means to them. Showing up for practice is the highlight of my day as I am able to connect with people who share the same love for the game as I do. We battle on the field as competitors but all the while we connect as teammates. I have loved playing for Black Watch the past 3 years and I will always remember it as a highlight when looking back at my youth club soccer years.

What would you tell to younger players interested in joining Black Watch?  Black Watch is a unique soccer club as it combines technical and tactical training, fitness, small sided games, and larger games in order to provide the players with the best training possible. The wide variety helps to create the best overall soccer player. It is important to play for a club like Black Watch because this club will help you achieve your soccer goals for the future.

Other Important information you would like to add: All of the Black Watch coaches are committed to their teams and players in order to help you succeed as a soccer player and person. Playing for Black Watch has helped me achieve my goal of being able to play at a Division 1 college and I am very excited to share what I’ve learned from this soccer club with my teammates next year!
