Accommodation choices on your school sports tour

Most school sports tour companies will have established links and great relationships with schools or clubs in the destinations they feature. For this reason, many of them are able to offer you the choice when it comes to your group's accommodation. Some schools like to stay together and bond as a group, while others choose to place students with local hosts so that they can really get under the skin of the place they are visiting, develop a deeper cultural understanding, and make life long friendships.

Local fixtures

An important part of any school sports tour are the competitive matches against local teams. Your school group will receive expert coaching as part of the package, developing their skills and knowledge of their chosen sport. However, no sports tour would be complete without a competitive game or three! Your team will be given plenty of opportunity to put what they learn into practice, testing their skills against well matched opponents.

Sports tour destinations

The school sports tour specialists that we work with have been arranging successful tours for decades and have developed links with schools all over the world. If we say Rugby you may think South Africa. Cricket we associate with Australia, and Football with Germany. In fact you can choose from many different countries, perhaps to tie in with language objectives, or simply to suit your school's budget. You may also wish to take in more than one destination in the true spirit of a tour!

Cultural excursions

Although the sport is the most important aspect of your school tour, when you are not training or competing, there will be opportunities to see more of the place you staying in. All the tours we offer include the chance to spend time on your trip visiting local attractions and landmarks. What tour of Dubai would be complete without a trip into the desert, or New York without a city tour.



"Schools can be as flexible as they like with their sports tours. All our sports tours are tailor made to suit the group, and all quotes are based on the requirements of the school in question. A typical Soccer Tour to Spain can include fixtures for other sports, such as Rugby, Basketball and Hockey, an educational visit to Barcelona with qualified guide and tour of the Nou Camp (Barcelona FC), organised coaching sessions from Espanyol Club Coaches, plus a full day excursion."
David Pinder, Director
Ski and Sport Travel

"Our primary audience for school sports tours are secondary school groups. Within secondary school group tours we have two distinct tour types. Sport for all: Open to all that are enthusiastic to get involved and experience sport. Perfect for team building, confidence and sport development. Trips for Squads: For those looking to take away their sports teams to challenge and improve. We find the beginning of the year is the best time to take away a squad as they will bond with their team members and by training with top international coaches will learn skills they can continue to develop over the course of the year."
Ben Reynolds, International Manager for Sport
Inspiring Learning

"Young football players that burst on to the scene cannot escape the attentions of the world's media. At Trans World Soccer we like to give everyone, regardless of ability, a true superstar media experience to provide a flavour of what like at the top is really like. All players will receive comprehensive media training in a variety of roles, and will work together in small teams to document their experience on a daily basis. These updates will be uploaded to Trans World Soccer’s social media accounts, allowing family members at home to see daily updates from the trip, and giving children valuable experience in communication, collaboration and 21st century journalism."
