Want to hear from our past athletes and coaches? See what they had to say about their experiences with America’s Team.
“The experience with America’s Team and ACIS was second to none. Our trip to Italy was both a cultural and athletic success. Everything from the tour guide, to the bus trips, the hotels, the tours, and the softball, were well coordinated and seamless. It is a wonderful way to see the world through softball.”
“I am from a small town and got to fly in a airplane for the first time. The players in the Dominican are so good and seeing the fields they train on made me appreciate the nice fields back home.”
“Italy was awesome! Getting to play baseball in a foreign country, and the stadiums we played in were amazing. The Colosseum was definitely the best thing I saw. It is huge! I can’t wait to go again next summer.”
We just won a game in front of 1000+ people…it felt like we were playing pro soccer in Spain or Italy—exciting atmosphere!!!
The boys down here in the Dominican know how to play ball better then anyone in the world! Every single one of them throws hard! Regardless, we still went 5 and 1 baby!
“Our trip with America’s Team and ACIS was incredible. The baseball in Italy was better than I expected, and our kids really competed well. Our tour manager ran the tour so smoothly, getting us to all the tours and games without any glitches. And his knowledge of the country was amazing! I can’t wait to take another team back to Italy.”
“I was thoroughly impressed with the product that America’s Team puts together. The trip is well organized and the accommodations sterling. ACIS’s people are first-class. Invariably, each player had an absolute blast and wants to participate again. I can’t say enough good things about this opportunity America’s Team provides.“
“Being part of America’s Team allows me to share the experience with young teenagers and helping them learn from other cultures. As a retired Army Senior Non-commissioned officer, I have had the opportunity to visit over 30 countries and serve my nation with pride, so this gives me the ability to build that same pride in our countries youth. I still get emails from participants four years ago that talk about how this opportunity gave them a new appreciation for what they have in the United States..”
“Putting on the USA jersey and representing the United States in baseball is an incredibly proud moment. The feeling is indescribable. Traveling with your team to another country is a tremendous bonding experience……it is awesome to see boys who haven’t left their home state much less the country see how big the world really is !!!!”
“I was asked to take a team to Italy, and from the very start of this venture I was covered 24/7 by the staff at America’s Team. If I had any questions concerning any topic regarding travel, uniforms, fees, whatever, I received an answer. The time spent in Italy was even more enjoyable than they had described…it was beyond belief. Our tour guide, the bus driver, the hotels, the games, the excursions were almost too real to believe. The whole experience of being an “AMBASSADOR” wearing the red/white/blue was so overwhelming it brought me to tears watching my team perform the game they loved and putting on a showcase for our host. The games we played were against skilled players, we were very fortunate to play the Italian National Team. The hosts were great and very accommodating to our needs. It was such a memorable and rewarding trip. I would highly recommend anyone as coach, player, parent or sibling, take the time to make a dream come true, be an ambassador, wear the red/white/blue and feel all the emotional highs, and enjoy the excursions, the scenery and the time spent abroad, the educational and cultural experience is something no one can describe righteously, its’ too overwhelming. YOU MUST BE THERE TO UNDERSTAND.“
