At Sports Travel Academy, The World is Your Classroom!

Why Travel with Us?

We work really hard to ensure our programs are “special” and we go the extra mile to encourage meaningful cultural exchange as well as a great basketball tour. If requested we can add on-tour educational components including but not limited to visits to museums, universities, national historical sites, sporting facilities, professional sporting organizations etc. Due to the Study Abroad side of our business we have university professor contacts all over the USA and can organize for local university visits & lectures from various university professors on a range of different topics suited to your tour.
