International Trip

WHO:

Players from our  16’s & 18’s age groups.

WHEN:

The 18-1, 18-2, 18-Black & 18-Red teams will all travel to Rome & Venice Italy over Easter with each playing in a different international tournament.

The 16-1 & 16-2 teams will be going to a tournament in Alkmaar,  Netherlands in late December/early January.

WHERE:

The 18’s trip would play in one of four tournaments taking place in Italy. Before the tournament we would spend 3-5 days sight-seeing other areas such as Rome, Florence, Milan, & Venice. Total trip time would be about 9 days. Departure will be April 14 and returning April 23.

Two teams of 16’s will be going to the Netherlands for 8 days after Christmas to participate in an international tournament we have attended in Alkmaar the past two years. Dates for the trip are December 25 – January 6.

COSTS:

Northern Lights is fortunate to have some funding provided specifically for International travel this year. This is going to allow the players to have very low costs for these trips.

The 16’s trip would cost each player airfare to Europe. Northern Lights will cover any additional ground cost (hotels, bus, meals, sight-seeing).

MISC:

Parents are permitted to travel with the 18’s teams. This year’s cost for a parent traveling with the 18’s trip is unknown at this time, but last year was about $1200 for the ground portion.
