Sports Tours

School sports tours offer a unique opportunity for your sporting team to compete worldwide with schools and clubs of the same caliber. With the goal to foster camaraderie and sportsmanship, school sports trips will be the highlight of your sporting team’s year. Sports travel tours can strengthen the bonds between team members as they will eat, live, sleep and experience new environments together, allowing students to develop a more personal connection between each other and their teachers. Sporting tours NZ and Australia or to overseas destinations aid in the development of cultural awareness as students experience sport at locations far from home. Students often return home after school sports tours with life-long friendships that were built on the field but continue into adulthood.
