Girls from Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia attend our Camps in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Athletes come to the Academy to improve their soccer skills in a uniquely fun and positive environment.
Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia Girls Soccer Camp
The Berkshire Soccer Academy for Girls (BSA) is a unique state-of-the-art athletic facility dedicated to girl’s and women’s soccer in New England. The Academy is located in the quaint town of East Otis, Massachusetts, 2 hours by car from Boston and 2.5 hours from New York City. Campers come to the Berkshire Soccer Academy from throughout Northern Viriginia and Washington, D.C. The Academy is less than 1 hour from Bradley International Airport (located between Hartford, CT and Springfield, MA) which offers direct flights from all three D.C. area airports. Free airport pickup and dropoff is provided. We provide a great girls soccer experience by focusing on individual skill development in a fun and positive environment.
Overnight Girls Soccer Camp Program
The Academy is unique among soccer camps for girls as the only overnight soccer camp for girls to infuse balance and fun into a world-class soccer camp experience. Our focus on providing elite coaches and facilities in a fun environment make us one of the best overnight soccer camps for girls in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.
We make our athletes better soccer players and better and more well-rounded young women. Girls at BSA receive elite training on our top-quality facilities from qualified and experienced coaching staff. Our goal is to provide a fun and balanced place for every girl to elevate her game to the next level. We focus on player improvement in three main areas: physical, mental and social; while deliberately infusing fun and balance into the learning process.
As one of the few specialty soccer camps set in a traditional camp environment, we encourage our athletes to train hard on the field, and then enjoy a relaxing elective activity, like canoeing or yoga, to decompress and enjoy down-time with friends.
