This summer, members of the boys soccer program at Chicopee High School will embark upon a trip of a lifetime! For the first time ever, a group of soccer players from Chicopee High School will travel to Ireland! We will immerse ourselves in the culture and history of this legendary country and play a bit of soccer too!
The package includes airfare, lodging in the Townhouses of the University of Limerick, three meals per day, motor coach transport, and sightseeing trips to the Cliffs of Moher, Brunratty Castle, Folk Park and Grafton Street in Dublin. The team will also participate in a clinic to introduce them to the traditional sports of Ireland.
The team will play up to three matches against local club teams and have training sessions conducted by FAI (Irish Football Association) qualified coaches. 2014 is a World Cup year and we’ll be in Limerick for the playing of the World Cup Final Match. Having the chance to experience the passion of the World Cup while in another country is a priceless opportunity for any soccer player and we’re exceptionally excited for the chance!
Can You Help?
It is nearly impossible for many members of our team to participate in a trip of this significance without some level of financial assistance. Can you help?
Any amount of contribution to our efforts, whether small or large, will go a long way to help us make this trip a reality and help to broaden the horizons of hard-working, respectable young men, and give them memories that will last a lifetime!
What is Chicopee High School Boys Soccer?
The Chicopee High School Boys Soccer Team is the only urban boys soccer program in Western Massachusetts currently competing at the highest level in Division One. Despite significant obstacles, our team has found a way to consistently compete on par with our suburban neighbors.
The players in our program come from varied home environments, but when they get together this team becomes a family. We strive to be the best we possibly can be on the field of play; win, lose, or draw. It's about hard work, personal sacrifice; facing challenges and overcoming them! Our motto is Pride, Honor, Respect.
In addition to a high level of commitment and dedication on the athletic field, members of the Boys Soccer program also work very hard in the classroom consistently earning Academic Honors year after year. Last season, eighteen members of the Varsity team earned Honors or High Honors. The team has twice earned the prestigious National Soccer Coaches Association’s Team Academic Excellence Award for maintaining a very high yearlong team GPA (3.5 and 3.7). Our players understand the value of education and strive to achieve success.

We are not just soccer and academics. The team is actively involved in community service as well. We have sent soccer balls to the children of Iraq, held youth soccer clinics and have raised significant contributions for worthy causes including the Baystate Health Foundation’s Rays of Hope Breast Cancer Research Center.
