Off-Season Educational Sports Tours
We began this Global Football adventure in 1996 when Mt. St. Joseph High School of Baltimore journeyed with us to England, playing one ‘friendly match’ vs a British U19 team, hosted an on-field youth clinic and enjoyed daily professionally guided tours in and around London. High schools across America, Canada and Mexico have enjoyed similar tours as part of the 28 nations we have visited.Generally these trips are held during summer vacation or spring breaks and with the expanding interest among coaches and young athletes worldwide, basically nearly every country you might dream of is available. While football, American style is our base, we have also provided similar opportunities to swim teams, field hockey, lacrosse, rugby, basketball and volleyball, mens and womens.
