      Join us for a trip that is jam packed with history and culture.

      On this trip we will hit all of the hot spots in the Tuscany Valley, from home-grown vineyards to Ancient Rome and the Colosseum.  This trip to Italy will surely check  some things off your bucket list. 

      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.

      FROM GAME PLAYERS TO GAME CHANGERS We are committed to giving the best athletes from the US the opportunity to travel and compete against the best athletes from abroad. More importantly, we're proud to have created an amazing and memorable experience for over 1,427 families (and counting 😉).


      ABSA did a great job on organizing everything and making sure everyone was happy and taken care of. Most of our time was touring and the last few days were softball that turned out to be a fun tournament. We would definitely recommend and do it again.

      It was an incredible opportunity! The food, the experience, the country and most importantly the people we met! The coaches and families were the best. Couldn’t of asked it to be any better! I have told everyone I know, that if they get an opportunity like this…. They need to do it!

      My daughter and I had the best time on this trip! Everything was planned out and stayed on track. All of the activities were wonderful! There was one activity that fell short of expectations but Coach Brooke made sure to get those that were interested a make up tour the next day at an awesome chocolate factory! My daughter loved playing softball against the local teams! It was a wonderful trip lead by an amazing guide and incredible coaches!

      Painful (LOL). . . that's how I would describe this trip (klutzy old gal here). This trip was definitely a WONDERFUL experience. So much was done, seen, and eaten on this trip. The girls experienced a ton of culture and sportsmanship and ate a lot of chocolate LOL. Coach Brooke was a true gem to be with. Always upbeat and positive. Coach Paul made sure to get those "shy" girls laughing along with him and the rest of the team. All the coaches were GREAT! Both teams of girls (12U & 14U) interacted very well and new friends were definitely made. Fabulous Coaches, Great Guide, and Awesome families!
      By Beth G for Netherlands-Coach Brooke on Aug 11, 2023
      Absolutely amazing experience! I was nervous with just traveling with my daughter and I. Brooke and our tour guide Clemons were amazing keeping us informed and on time for everything! Brooke made sure we were all having a great time and even scheduled a different tour of a chocolate factory knowing we were unimpressed with the original tour. We will definitely recommend Brooke and ABSA to other athletes!
