This College tour gives you a real life experience of what college softball is all about.
Canada Futures started in 2012 when Coach Frei found an opportunity to play in the Adidas Futures tournament in St. George Utah.
Over the last 7 years we have developed the program in to a tour that takes U14 – U19 players to the Southern US States including Georgia, Alabama and Florida. We tour campuses of schools ranging from Junior College to Division I Universities. During these tours the girls get the opportunity to see world class facilities and interact with current players at these schools.
We also play against a number of Junior Colleges while we are down on the tour. This gives the girls an opportunity to see where they are at in skill and how much they need to push to get to the next level. Typically we will play 5 double headers against these teams. This allows the players to experience a “day in the life” of a college athlete.
The tour runs for 9 days, Wednesday October 8 – 16. Travel is from Vancouver, BC to Atlanta Georgia via Air and we will meet a charter bus upon arrival that will drive us the entire week. We will stay in hotels and eat at restaurants that you will not see at home. You will also be introduced to southern foods like Okra and Sweet Tea and see a different landscape than you have seen before as we travel between states. You will all get to experience Southern Hospitality.
The girls will be treated like college students while travelling including study time on the bus and working on their game in practice and games. They will get the opportunity to see what it will be like to travel to games on a bus like many schools do.
We are estimating at the player cost being $1,100 for this years tour. This will include all ground travel once you arrive in Atlanta, uniforms, tours, accommodation and food from dinner on arrival day to arrival at the airport for departure. Flights are not included in this price and are generally between $450 and $550. We have started looking in to group flight booking from Vancouver.
The uniforms will consist of a cage jacket, 2 uniform shirts and a visor. They will also be wearing their shirts from evaluation camp as their travel attire.
There is a cost for parents to join us as well at $200. This includes all of the tours, booking of a room block for each hotel and information provided to you on recruiting. I will also provide updated information on our itinerary while we are away so you are able to adjust your schedules while we travel. Limited space will be available on the bus at a per seat cost to be calculated once we have our bus costs. These will be available on a first come first serve basis.
We will be seeing the following schools: Georgia Military College, Georgia College and State University, Gordon State College, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Middle Georgia State University, Brewton-Parker College, Auburn University, Alabama State University, Pensacola State College, Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University.
