About this trip

Join ABSA and Coach Gower/Smith for 8 days of softball,  culture, and experience in Australia. 

We will be traveling throughout different parts of the country including Brisbane and Sydney.

When booking your trip, please keep in mind that you are traveling to an area outside of the United States, with its own customs, traditions, and culture. Additionally many of the sporting amenities we are accustomed to in the US are not available in other countries. We strive to provide you with the best the area has to offer! Some of our trips have extremely competitive tournament play while others exist to continue spreading softball to other countries. Either way, you will serve as an ambassador of softball and ABSA! We encourage you to complete your own research on your destination. Google StreetView is a great way to explore the area!

***All travelers under the age of 18 MUST travel with a parent or guardian.
