Strategies for Planning an Overseas Field Trip for Young Athletes
Hubball, Harry; Robertson, Scott
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v17 n4 p7-9 Mar-Apr 2004
Overseas field trips, when they are well planned, offer numerous benefits to young athletes. They contribute to player development, and fuel the team's energy and commitment to success. Field trips are enjoyable and exciting breaks from the regular routine of training and competing. The authors recommend strategies for positive results based on their own experience in taking a boys' soccer team (from Canada) to England. An organizational structure is provided, along with practical ideas for designing and implementing a successful experience. Among other things, the authors discusses that needs assessment, planning, and funding should be taken into consideration. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
