Kirstyn Wright, Program Coordinator

My name is Kirstyn Wright and I will be your main point of contact leading up to the Australia Field Hockey Tour! In addition to field hockey, we’ll adventure through Australia; exploring city life, breathtaking landscapes, and unique wildlife. Our tour is action packed, making the most of our short time on the other side of the world. If you have any questions about the trip, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

 

We look forward to providing you the experience of a lifetime!

INFO FOR PARENTS

Over the last six years of operating international experiences for thousands of college athletes, we've learned that parents typically have two questions:

1) Will my son/daughter be safe while abroad?

2) Can I come?

Our top concern at all times is student safety during our trips. In an effort to help make you as comfortable as possible before and during your student's experience abroad, we encourage you to set up a time to discuss safety with one of our Program Directors. Also, if you'd like to speak with the parent of a past participant, we'd be happy to facilitate that connection.

If you would like to join your student-athlete's tour, please fill out the form below. Please understand that we are unable to provide any logistical support to parents traveling independently of the tour.
