We Help Players Become Coaches.
Every summer, 16 collegiate women’s soccer players are selected to become Assistant Coaches and Cabin Counselors at the Berkshire Soccer Academy. During their time with us, (June 21st – Aug. 4th) each Assistant Coach will develop professionally through:
- Coaching Education: Receive USSF – E licensure at our facility as part of staff orientation.
- Mentorship: Work closely with a different set of Master Coaches & Head Coaches each week.
- Working with the Greatest: Visiting Pros like Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Tisha Hoch and Yael Averbuch provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to be inspired by greatness.
We are still looking for a few more incredible young women to join us this summer. If you know anyone that would be a great candidate, please direct them to our staff application.
Each staff member (including Assistant Coaches) attends our 5-day staff training prior to the first day of camp. During this paid orientation, the staff work with our leadership team to prepare curriculum & plan events as well as familiarize themselves with the facility. This aspect of staff training is vital. Orientation allows staff members to, “own it before they share it.” When campers arrive on the first day, they are greeted warmly, by a close-knit Berky family.
