The international stage provides high-level training and play that benefits every player and coach. From matches and training facilities to skill-building to learning new tactical approaches, everything about soccer in Europe is on a different level. The memories players bring home stay with them forever – bonding with each other in a new country, meeting and socializing with opponents before and after games, touring new sites, tasting local cuisine, and more – building character, inspiring goals for the future and instilling a global perspective about life and sports. This is why Arizona Youth Soccer Association offers ODP teams the chance to travel internationally
After our first successful international soccer tour with WorldStrides Excel to Barcelona, Spain for our 2001/2002 Boys and Girls teams, Arizona ODP is pleased to announce that we are opening international travel for additional teams in 2017!
