International soccer tour packages are a great way of exposing children to the sport of soccer as played in the rest of the world. Soccer is extremely popular abroad, and students who embark on soccer tours to England or Brazil, for example, gain experiences they wouldn’t have otherwise. International soccer tours for college, high school, and even students younger than that are a perfect way to show students what the world has to offer in and outside of the world of soccer!
Soccer is a wonderful sport that teaches kids of all ages, genders, and backgrounds about the values of patience, teamwork, sportsmanship, integrity, hard work, and dedication. Soccer leagues are often a wonderful and cherished activity that kids keep with them when they become adults.
Though soccer may not have as large of a fan base in the United States as other sports such as football or hockey, it still is widely popular, especially with youth. There are more than 8,200 soccer clubs in the United States for children, from little-league teams to high school. In particular, high school teams make up a large chunk of overall high school sports — and that is saying something. More than 7.7 million high school students played on a sports team for school in 2013, and that number is expected to grow. In fact, more than 60% of all American children play sports outside of school! Needless to say, there is no lack of enthusiasm for sports among the next generation of Americans.
From playing soccer in Barcelona to taking a tour of the Scottish highlands after a match, soccer tours offer a number of fun and exhilarating activities to do both on and off the soccer field. Tours include activities for the students when they’re not playing. They can learn about the history of the country they’re in and visit the museums, restaurants, and the other cultural locations they couldn’t experience anywhere else. International soccer tours are a powerful, unforgettable opportunity for student soccer players to play the sport they love and travel the world while doing it!
