Silvia Betancourt, Director of Soccer Programs

Greetings from Costa Rica! My name is Silvia Betancourt and I'm excited that you are interested in joining us for our Soccer Tour! I grew up playing soccer on the same fields we'll play on during the tour before earning a college scholarship to play in the US. I've also had a chance to travel the world as a member of Costa Rica's National Team and I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunities soccer has given me. My favorite part of working at Beyond Sports is the hundreds of college athletes I've been able to get to know while sharing my beautiful country! After you accept your invitation, we'll set up a time to speak over the phone and answer any questions you might have. I look forward to meeting you soon and sharing an incredible experience together in Costa Rica!

 

Pura vida,

Silvia

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.
