About this trip

Represent the USA in a rare and special international game of American Football against the National 19U Team of Italy! Come together as a USA Team while touring from Rome to Lake Como with a mid-week stay (and co-practice) in the Tuscany region. After morning practices daily tours take in much of the very best that historically rich Italy has to offer - the Roman Coliseum, Vatican City, Florence, Cinque Terra, Milan and much more. Scroll to the itinerary below and click on each day to see the tremendous activities leading up to the USA-AFW ELITE TEAM vs. the Italian National 19U Team on April 8, 2023. This will be our 10th AFW ELITE TEAM tour, 6th to Italy (2 each to France & Ireland).

Join the USA-AFW ELITE TEAM - Act Fast!

Swift formation of the USA-AFW ELITE TEAM in the coming weeks is integral to the game and tour taking place. Due to deadlines imposed by the airlines for the group flights, give thought to this opportunity promptly. Also, roster positions are filled largely on 'first-to-register basis'.

Players are eligible for the team if 19 or younger at any point in 2023. HS seniors, college freshmen and mature HS juniors are eligible for this USA Select Team.

Some S-As are on spring break this week, while many past travelers have missed school for a week to take in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has tremendous educational value.

AFW ELITE TEAMS typically travel 30-35 players ensuring that all will have extensive playing time in this international game.
