What Do Head Coaches Do?
This year’s Head Coaches are all returning staff members. Head Coaches spend their entire summer at Berky, lead fixtures like the BSA Tournament and Private Training, and work with one training group each week. Additionally, the head coaches can be found at the center of the fun during a meal, special event, or bridge trip.
