The BSV's Athletic Committee guides and supervises the athletic endeavors of the club. Currently, we sponsor a men's Eishockey team, a co-ed Fußball (soccer) team, and also work to support youth sports organizations in the Walpole area. If you are looking to get involved with the committee, either as a player or a volunteer, please reach out. We are also always looking for new athletic opportunities for the BSV, so if you have an idea for a new club, team, or initiative - let us know!

Founded in 2018, the BSV's men's Eishockey team competes in recreational leagues and tournaments across New England. The team is mostly comprised of C and D-level skaters. Currently, they compete in PowerPlay Hockey League's (PPHL) Walpole/Foxboro D-division.

The BSV Kickers Fußball (soccer) team has been a part of our club for more than 40 years. The team has been on hiatus for a number of years, but we're excited to announce that the Kickers will officially be revived in the summer of 2022. They will begin play with organized pick up matches in Walpole with future exploration of league opportunities in fall 2022. The Kickers are a co-ed soccer team and welcome players of all skill levels. Click below to learn more about the registration process.
