#SFYSAbroad : June 2020 Costa Rica Soccer Adventure

After the success of our inaugural trip abroad for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, SFYS is really excited to announce that San Francisco Youth Soccer will be heading to Costa Rica next summer on a soccer training & service learning adventure tour!

This will be a life-changing experience open to all players within the SFYS Community, whether you play in our house leagues, regional travel leagues or a local school league. Family members are invited as well on this 7-day trip from June 22-28th, 2020!

Youth Referees & Players age 12-18 + friends and/or families welcome. Not required to be currently playing in SF Youth Soccer leagues – open to all youth in San Francisco leagues, including school and travel leagues.

SFYS is proud to again be partnering with WorldStrides Excel sports after an amazingly successful Women’s World cup trip to France in 2019. WorldStrides has been around for over 50 years & some of you might even recognize the name from educational trips they offer! They offer the highest value, yet also the most inclusive experiences.

We will have the chance to explore beautiful Costa Rica, train with 2 local Costa Rican youth clubs, have 2 professional clinics with a Costa Rican Pro Club, play some beach soccer & participate in an amazing service learning activity with local Costa Rican children. Some of the awesome inclusions of this trip are: A guided San Jose city tour, White water rafting, waterfalls & wildlife hike, Ziplining in the jungle, a Volcano tour, Beach time and some free time on your own to explore!

On the tour, we will have our own 24/7 WorldStrides Excel Bi-Lingual Tour Director who will take care of everything from start to finish. We will just sit back and enjoy the sights and experiences & let the team bond ahead of the new season or in celebration of the old!

WorldStrides Excel offers financial assistance to families, they help with fundraising and players can even earn 3 free college credits via their unique partnership with University of California – San Diego plus there’s the option to only pay 60% of the trip before travelling!

We hosted an informational trip meeting for all players and families on Thursday September 26th at 7pm at the SFYS office located at 1434 Taraval St, San Francisco, CA 94116.

Recap of the 9/9 Info Night: We covered the trip inclusions, fundraising, and how to sign up. SFYS Staff was also on hand to answer any questions and speak to our previous trip with WorldStrides.
