School Sports Tour Cultural Exchange Days in the USA

School Sports Tour Cultural Exchange Days in the USA

Immerse your students in a completely new culture and get a true feel for the American way of life with one of our school sports tour cultural exchange days.

Our school sports tours cultural exchange days offer students the chance to go into an American high school and see the sporting world from a totally new perspective, helping to motivate, develop and inspire young minds, as well as experience a wider variety of lifestyles.

By substituting sports fixtures for cultural opportunities, your tour becomes more accessible, inclusive and cost-effective, opening it up to a greater number of students. Groups can enter an American high school where they’ll participate in a mix of academic lessons and practical workshops, compare lifestyles with their US counterparts and play American sports, as well as bring British sports over to them!

By interacting with others from different walks of life, students will come away with new friendships and a greater understanding and appreciation of American culture. Combine this with watching live sport between world-renowned teams like the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings, and you’ve got the perfect sports tour with a cultural twist.
