Press Release: Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer re-ups partnership with WorldStrides Excel Sports

ODP Foreign Travel Policy

After a successful 2016 Spring Break soccer tour with WorldStrides Excel Sports, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is pleased to announce that we are continuing our tradition of sending teams to Europe for Spring Break! For information regarding the 2017 international trips read below:

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer aims to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels. This is why Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer offers ODP teams the chance to travel internationally and play soccer. The level of play and the level of coaching in Europe are second to none! 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. Not only will an international tour enhance your player’s soccer skills, but also build their cultural experiences. Players mingle with their opponents at post-game and pre-game socials, try new foods, see new sights and bond with their teammates. Don’t let this opportunity to broaden your player’s horizon slip by. All trips for 2017 will take place Sunday, April 9th – Monday, April 17th, 2017. All of the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer sponsored international trips are designed and administered by WorldStrides Excel Sports.

International Trip Testimonials

“We had an excellent experience in Italy with the U-17 Girls Eastern Pennsylvania ODP team this year. Our travel was great, the guides were very knowledgeable and professional and had flexibility to adapt our schedule as needed for the group. As always the sights, smells and tastes of Italy were amazing and the girls discovered the rich history from roman ruins, to the marble streets of Verona and Venice and the spectacular Dumo in Milan. It truly was the trip of a lifetime for them to play against very good Serie A and B teams and be welcomed by the teams and their families with meals and hospitality. I would highly recommend Excel Sports tours for your teams next trip abroad.” – Chris Wilson, Eastern Pennsylvania Girls ODP Head Coach, Italy

“Working with WorldStrides Excel and Eric has been an incredible experience for all our ODP players, families and coaches the past seven years. WorldStrides Excel is the perfect combination of organization from beginning to end, top level matches, awareness of every team's needs and experiencing each country's rich culture. The bond Eastern Pennsylvania has with Excel will continue for years to come.” – Mike Barr, Technical Director, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer
