Many girls who attend our summer camp play with soccer clubs based in New York. The majority of clubs and programs that send girls to camp are playing within the ENY region leagues. Several clubs from Westchester County play in the Westchester Youth Soccer League (WYSL) which covers the northern New York metro area include: New York Soccer Club, FC Westchester Elite, NY Rush – Patriots and North Rockland. In addition there are several Manhattan and Brooklyn based clubs which play in the WYSL with representation at our girls summer camps: Manhattan Soccer Club, Downtown United , Brooklyn United, Asphalt Green and Gotham Girls.
In addition to the New York Metro area we frequently see campers from Long Island and the Albany Capital District. The Long Island clubs typically play in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) such as Albertson, Merrick & Terryville Soccer Club. and Albany (Capital District) Metro Area (Saratoga SC).
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 college coaches and facilities in a fun environment make us one of the best overnight soccer camps for girls in New York.
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.
