About Us

Welcome to Baystars FC!

Our mission is to create a safe and positive soccer experience for all of our players through a competitive atmosphere during games and practices.  We will meet this mission by teaching all aspects of the game; physcial, psychological, technical, and tactical. 

Baystars FC hopes to provide and develop the game of soccer for the youth of the Middle Peninsula of Virginia and promote a safe and healthy environment to properly develop the soccer player in skills, sportsmanship and fair play. 

The teams will participate in the Virginia Soccer League, Inc. (VSLI)  travel league and participate in VYSA, Virginia Youth Soccer Association sanctioned tournaments. New this year is the opportunity for our U10-U8 teams to play within the newly developing Futures League, which will limit their travel. If you have any questions, please email me at ccheat72@gmail.com.
