Girls' Soccer - Varsity
The Portsmouth Abbey Girls' Soccer program believes in providing a challenging and educational experience both on and off the soccer field. Soccer players are expected to strive to reach their very best academically, socially, and athletically. Along with the varsity program, we offer a highly demanding junior varsity program, where less experienced players come to learn and appreciate the necessity of individually skilled and aggressive play, with emphasize on teamwork and respect for the opponent, officials, fans, and the game.
Girls' varsity soccer is proud to be a member of the Eastern Independent League (EIL). EIL member schools include Bancroft School, Beaver Country Day, Berwick Academy, Concord Academy, Dana Hall School, Landmark School, Lexington Christian, Newton Country Day, Pingree School and the Winsor School.
