Several Women’s Teams to Embark on Foreign Tours

  0 Wendy Mayer | May 07th, 2017 | College - Women's Indoor, News

Once the traditional fall and spring seasons are over, many Division I programs and even a few Division II teams get in some extra practice time and team bonding through foreign tours. These trips last from a week to two weeks and give teams time for both sightseeing and competition. Opponents range from national teams and junior national teams to top club programs in whatever country is nearby.

Tours range from treks across Europe to single country stays in Europe to destinations as far and wide as Japan, China, Nicaragua and Brazil. In 2017, at least 17 schools and two more teams representing conferences will be participating in foreign tours. To make it easy to follow your favorite squad that is travelling abroad, has put together a handy chart with tour dates and locations if available, websites and pertinent social media accounts.

Penn State was the first team to depart this spring, leaving for Brazil on May 5. Duke was not far behind, hitting the road for Italy on May 7.
