Why organise a School Sports Tour? | miTour Sports Tours Explain
School sports tours are an amazing way for students to get active and visit some beautiful countries across the globe.
The number of countries we can visit nowadays is phenomenal. Children are able to experience places which, 30 years ago, wouldn’t have been possible. The ability we and our kids now have to travel and do the things we’re passionate about at the same time is amazing.
For those involved in sports, they can do exactly this! School sports tours are enabling children to visit a multitude of countries. miTour can arrange school football tours, rugby, hockey, netball and cricket tours across the globe!
There are so many benefits to merging travel and sports. Let’s see why organising a school sports tour should be top of the agenda!
A Chance to Explore a New Culture and Country
Did you know that in Spain, they typically eat dinner around 9pm? Or that in Japan, the national sport is sumo wrestling? When visiting a new country, you get to experience their culture and learn about a different, rich history. This is the best way for children to learn. They’re able to see real-life temples, churches and architecture from around the globe. It’s an incredible experience for children.
Some children may have never visited a country outside of their continent, or been on a plane. For others, it might be the first time hearing another language spoken fluently. Travelling allows students to fully immerse themselves in a new culture and learn about the world.
Many of our tours include options to visit famous local sights. We want you to make the most out of your trip, which means playing sport and seeing sights, too.
Motivation to Get Involved in School Sport
School sports tours are becoming increasingly popular and it’s a great way to promote the school sports team. It’s so important that we’re promoting children to get active and involved with sports. The £415 million from the sugary drinks levy is intended to help fight childhood obesity and promote more sports in schools.
When you tell students about exciting opportunities to travel through sport, it can make them more motivated to get involved. Always highlight opportunities like this to encourage children; there’s more to sport than just playing it in school or at the local park.
Where Do School Sports Tours Go?
Whatever your budget, they’ll be a sports tour suitable for you. Tours to Europe start from just £219pp, while tours to South America and Australia will set you back a little more, but will be for a longer amount of time. We organise tours to different countries at different times of the year, depending on the climate and country.
We offer special experiences that will get the kids really excited. For example, going to play football in Spain; it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to play football in the country that is home to one of the best leagues in La Liga, boasting some of the world’s greatest clubs and players.
To celebrate the 2019 Rugby World Cup, we have a unique experience for rugby school tours to visit Japan! The country is gearing up for the World Cup and this amazing experience enables students to play in the country where all of rugby union’s biggest stars will be in 2019.
