Tailor-made School Sports Tours to
New York, USA

Take a bite out of the Big Apple and explore the urban jungle that is New York. With iconic attractions aplenty, your school sports tour to New York will mix educational sightseeing, Broadway shows and live sport with those all-important matches against local teams and schools.

New York is our number one school sport US destination, which means we know the best itinerary for your team. We’ve developed a cultural exchange programme which sees teams go into an American school and participate in a PE lesson, later switching the roles where the American pupils are taught a British style lesson.

With two local MLS teams, enthusiasm for football in New York is at an all-time high. With a whole host of football-hungry locals teams eager to play UK teams in our fixture database, we’re never short of exciting fixtures for your school sports tour to New York. We also offer professional coaching at New York Red Bulls – a must for football fanatics.

What’s more, we plan mix-and-match meals on your tour between those at your hotel and those in authentic diners, meaning you get to eat where New Yorkers eat!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?

    Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.
  • Do you provide risk assessments for the visits you offer?

    You can download our Generic Risk Management Handbook which will help you complete your risk assessment for your school or Local Authority. The aim of the handbook is to provide all tour leaders with supportive suggestions to help raise awareness to risk, suggest control measures to help mitigate the risk and manage risk pro-actively. For further assistance, please speak to a member of our team who will be happy to help.

  • What do I need to do to ensure safe travel for my group?

    Information is available from your Local Authority on what is expected from party leaders on a trip. In addition, we are happy to assist you in ensuring that you have all of the necessary information to successfully assess risks and ensure a safe trip for you and your group. Further advice and information can be found on the OEAP National Guidance website.
