The Hopkins Girls Soccer program includes three competitive levels: a JuniorSchool team for 7th and 8th graders, and Junior Varsity and Varsity squads for girls in grades 9-12. The Varsity Squad competes in the Western Branch of the New England Prep School Women Soccer Association (WWNEPSSA). The WWNEPSSA league involves approximately forty schools, and Hopkins Varsity girls compete in the “B” Division for medium-sized schools. The League’s schedule is very competitive; it includes many regionally ranked as well as local teams. The emphasis is on team play while the program looks for players who can adapt to fast-paced and challenging games and who exhibit individual personality and creative style.
Head coach Brittany Soto joined the team beginning in the 2021 season.
