Arizona WWC


Arizona Soccer Association ODP is pleased to announce its 4th year of partnership with WorldStrides Excel to send our ODP teams to Europe for a once-in-a-lifetime international experience.

International Soccer Travel

An opportunity to travel and play abroad is an excellent chance for soccer players to train for a bigger stage, compete against new competition, bond as a team, and learn about a culture different from their own. For ODP teams, which are typically composed of players who want to continue their soccer careers for as long as possible, gaining an international playing experience is increasingly becoming an important milestone in their individual development.

Arizona Soccer Association ODP aims to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels. ASA offers ODP teams the chance to travel internationally and play soccer. Through travel to Europe, players engage in a level of competition not found in the U.S. as well as learn a different style of play. All tours will include training sessions, match play against top academy teams, stadium tours, and attendance at professional matches. Players also mingle with their opponents at pre-game and post-game socials, try new foods, see new sights and bond with their teammates.

All tours will take place from March 9th – 17th. Don’t let this opportunity to broaden your player’s horizon slip by! Click the itineraries below for a breakdown of the upcoming tours.


2002/2003 Boys March 9 - 17, 2019 - Manchester
