Josh Erickson, Program Director

My name is Josh Erickson and I am excited to travel to Spain with you this summer! The first time I traveled to Spain I was completely stunned by the historic European architecture, perfect Mediterranean climate, and bustling city streets with such rich culture! This trip will include visits to some amazing cultural sites, beautiful beaches, plenty of world famous Spanish Tapas, and volleyball games with some of the top clubs in the country. I am here as a resource for you and your parents leading up to the trip. 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 Spain!

 

Saludos,


Josh

TRIP ITINERARY

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.
