“WOW, is this really happening to me?” You may be thinking this as you listen to the national anthem, just before you go out and represent the USA on the field or on the court. And when you’re not playing, imagine getting to see places like the Colosseum in Rome, a WWII Concentration Camp in Germany, or walking along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in Barcelona.
As a member of America’s Team, this is what you will be doing. Whether you go onto college and play or not, you will be preparing and giving yourself that extra edge that other college students won’t have. You will get to learn both about a foreign culture, and you will continue learning about sports. And lastly, you will return home a more responsible and mature person. We will challenge you to learn and grow everyday…both on and off the field!
QHow is the team put together?
AEvery player on America’s Team is recommended by a coaching professional or a former athlete. Recommendations are based upon your integrity, character and overall athletic ability. Our teams are made of individuals that make great ambassadors and great athletes.
QHow much playing time will I get?
AOur team members come from coach’s recommendations, so each player is obviously talented. For this reason, our coaches are instructed to provide equal playing time among every team member. Our teams are carefully constructed to provide maximum playing time for each student-athlete.
QWhat is the competition like in foreign countries?
AAs in the USA, competition varies by location. If your tour surrounds a scheduled tournament, then you should expect the competition to be very competitive. Friendship tours often include local club teams, which include good quality competition, designed to promote the sport in their respective country.
QCan my family or friends travel with the team?
AAbsolutely! Anyone who wishes to participate in this unique sports tour program is welcome. A younger brother or sister can serve as a batboy or batgirl and parents often make great score-keepers. Parents, family, friends and other boosters all add flavor to the excitement of a sporting tour. Your parents have watched you play all your life. Why should that stop now? If your parents or family members would like to travel with the team, please contact your recruiter for more information.
