2021 Soccer Survey Results

Soccer has been a refuge for Berky Girls

We surveyed over 900 Berky parents about the impact of COVID on their daughters’ soccer participation and received nearly 200 (21%) responses. According to the survey, 99% of Berky girls played between September and February, and more than 98% expect to play in the spring. And they are playing a lot: 3.6 days in the fall and spring and 2.7 in the winter.

Soccer Participation

In the fall and for this coming spring most girls participated or will participate in Club, Travel, Private or Small Group Training and their Local/Town Leagues. Participation in Travel and Club Soccer will increase in the spring, while private and small group training will decline.

Switching Clubs

  • Club folded due to  Covid-19
  • Desire for higher-level competition
