PLANNING YOUR TRIP

PLANNING YOUR TRIP

Encore mails out tournament information approximately one year prior to the actual travel dates. It is highly advised that coaches and teacher begin planning a trip almost a year in advance to join the best tournaments, secure the most affordable flights and organize fundraisers.

There are many tournament options that can be arranged for your team. Connect with Dave Mccabe to find out how we can customize your entire trip.

The following items are included in the cost of most tours:

  • Return airfare from your departure city on regularly scheduled airlines
  • 5-8 night accommodations in fine hotels, located in safe areas
  • 3-4 series of exhibition games against local teams
  • Participation in scheduled tournament or pre-arranged training sessions with top-class, local coaches
  • Tournament t-shirts
  • Assistance with securing extensive tourist information, pro sports tickets etc.
  • 1-15 passenger or 2 mini vans per team (some school boards prohibit 15 passenger van rentals in which case mini vans can be provided)

Options that may be added to your tour:
