The BHYSC fosters opportunities through the game of soccer for everyone involved to develop a love of the game and the values, habits and skills essential to growth as individuals and contributing members of a community.

BHYSC offers two unique and separate programs for children who live in the towns of Great Barrington, Stockbridge, West Stockbridge, Richmond and Lee. Our programs are also available to children who attend a school in these towns.
