The Bermuda Football Coaches Association (BFCA) will be hosting a Boarding School Informational Meeting, open to all interested parents and players, on Friday June 15th, 2018 @ the National Sports Center Pavilion. The presentation will begin at 5:30pm, and feature the Head Coach from Berkshire School, Charlie Bour.
In 2017, Coach Bour led Berkshire School to a 19-1-1 record, the team's only defeat coming in a 1-0 double-overtime loss in the NEPSAC Class A championship.
Prior to taking over at Berkshire, Coach Bour spent several seasons as the Head Coach at The Loomis Chafee School where he earned 2014 Prep Coach of the Year after his team went 17-1 and earned the #1 ranking in the nation at the end of the regular season. He also coached at his alma mater, St. Lawrence University. In his second year at St. Lawrence, the Saints championed both the Liberty League regular-season title and the Liberty League Tournament, earning an automatic NCAA tournament bid.
Charlie is on island to identify and meet with prospective student-athletes and their parents who are interested to attend the reputable school and be a part of its distinguished soccer program. There are several notable alumni members of Berkshire from the local football fraternity. Namely in recent years, players like Zeiko Lewis, Justin Donawa and 2018 graduate Ahria Simons have graced the halls and soccer fields of the New England area school.
Berkshire School is a co-ed, New England college preparatory boarding and day school offering a rigorous academic course of study in the northeast United States. The campus, located in Massachusetts, has state-of-the-art academic, artistic and athletic facilities on a stunning 400-acre campus in the Berkshires.
Berkshire’s soccer program annually competes at the championship level, winning the Class A title in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016 while earning the No. 1 ranking among the nation's prep schools.
The presentation will include information on Berkshire School, plus specific soccer program information -values, philosophies, recruiting, and college process. Questions on general boarding school themes will also be welcomed.
