We will provide you with specific details for flight arrangements, drop off and pick up times once we have a clear understanding of where players are traveling from, as we will try to make it as convenient as possible for you.
To further enhance the experience for the players, we will be staying at hotels located at Professional Soccer Stadiums and at The England National Team Headquarters. We will forward to parents the name, address and telephone number of our hotel prior to the trip.
Our Next Gen delegation will include Next Gen Development Directors and special guest international coaches.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner will be provided.
In order to better develop the self-responsibility and maturity of the players, this trip will be for players only. Parents are welcome to travel to watch the matches but must secure separate ground/air transport as well as separate lodging. This is done because we are working to better prepare players for potential future U.S. National Team Programs and Professional Club travel.
Players are permitted to travel with cell phones and will be asked to contact parents on a regular basis once we land in England and continually until arriving back in the U.S.
