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 U.S. National Team Programs, Professional Club travel and future College preparation.
Players are permitted to travel with cell phones and will be asked to contact parents once we land in Belgium, and continually until we arrive back in the U.S.
In the event of a family emergency, parents will be given emergency contacts:
