WorldStrides Excel, the nation’s largest and most trusted sports travel provider, announced it is partnering with Seacoast United Sports Club to deliver international sports tours for their soccer, baseball, softball, lacrosse, and field hockey teams.
Teams taking part in the international trips to several locations in Europe can expect to play high level sides while visiting professional stadiums and fixtures. The players, ages U11to U19, will also tour the nearby cities and learn from WorldStrides’ expert guides.
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with WorldStrides,” said Paul Willis, CEO, Seacoast United Sports Club. “International travel is a key component to our overall curriculum as we firmly believe that it helps players develop off the field just as much as off on it.” Paul went on to say, “WorldStrides will be able to provide opportunities to a number of countries which will certainly make these trips of a lifetime.”
“Excel is absolutely thrilled to offer Seacoast United Sports Club the opportunity to travel abroad in 2020,” said Eric McAleer, Senior Vice President of WorldStrides Excel Programs. “Excel is a longtime believer in the value international travel has on the development of players both on and off the field, and this opportunity to develop programs for so many different types of athletes is an incredible opportunity to expand our mission.”
Over 20 Seacoast United teams will travel to destinations such as Barcelona, Munich, and London in 2020 with trips departing in February, April, June, July, & August.
