Welcome to Blacksburg Sports Club


Thank you for visiting Blacksburg Sports Club, the New River Valley's home for supporting local varsity athletic programs, primarily those of Blacksburg High School and Virginia Tech. We provide a setting for fellowship and education around a sports theme. We participate in and sponsor various fund-raising events to generate additional support for the athletic programs at Blacksburg High School and Virginia Tech. We wholeheartedly welcome the public to attend these events! Profits are used primarily to:

  • Promote excellence throughout the athletic departments of Blacksburg High School and Virginia Tech
  • Fund major projects at the two schools
  • Support under-funded athletic programs
  • Endow a VT scholarship
