After recently returning from an amazing hockey tour of the Netherlands with Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, I’d like to share some of the top reasons for choosing the Netherlands for your next sports tour:
The facilities are amazing in the Netherlands and your staff will be able to enjoy different coaching techniques to observe and maybe even take home and replicate.
- Sporting Background
So many people belong to clubs in every town that it’s normal for girls to be regularly practising a sport outside of school.
- Quality Training
Training sessions where girls will be coached by top players, often from the men’s first team.
Playing opposition who take matches seriously and train regularly as a club inspires girls to push themselves.
Because team sports are organised by clubs rather than played in schools, you’ll be able to travel to different towns in the Netherlands and really experience the culture.
The host teams are very welcoming and enjoy playing international fixtures. It’s a great opportunity for the girls to socialise after the matches and make new friends.
- The Full Package
Cultural activities complement sporting activities which makes for a well-rounded international tour.
