"Our trip was incredible. We all had a tremendously good time. Our bus driver, Richard, was extremely capable and helpful and Mark, our rep from Eurotech®/STI who traveled with us the entire time, was great. Most of us are ready to go back!"
Mary Beth Guiseppe, Downingtown Spirit Force Soccer Club, Pennsylvania
"We have completed our Euro 2008 Trip to Germany and it has been a tremendous experience to say the least. We really lucked out with the weather as it only rained one morning for the entire trip. The games were a success as we went undefeated on the girls and boys side. The pro games were a great experience for everyone with Bielefeld winning 1-0 in injury time and FC Saint Pauli getting a historic 5-0 win at their home field. We also had the privilege of watching Werder Bremen train one morning, being so close that the ball even sailed into our group. We toured the Bremen stadium as well as Ajax in Amsterdam. Truly a memorable experience. Our bus driver was first class (Clause) and our tour guide was a gem. Roland served as our tour guide and translator and made the experience all the more memorable. We really can’t thank Eurotech® enough for their efforts. The kids and parents seemed to enjoy themselves and the kids now have memories that will last a lifetime. Finally, I want to take an opportunity to thank everyone for making the trip with us. All the parents and kids were great. We had a great group and I will always remember this trip and what a great time it was. Many thanks to Eurotech® for putting such a great tour together, Miranda Popp for writing our daily blogs, Roland Crump who was our amazing guide, Clause who got us safely to each destination, Chad and Ryan for keeping the kids in line, and lastly to our official photographer, Mike Segala, for documenting our entire trip. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves and hope you will help pass the torch on to next year’s group. Thanks again and see you on the field!"
Chris Scrofani, Executive Director, Virginia Legacy Soccer Club, Virginia
“We had a great time in London and my girls had a wonderful experience. We have already decided to try and get a whole team together next summer. I have no complaints about the trip and I felt that it went as smooth as possible. The games, accommodations, and food met our expectations and then some. Ashley, Nikki, and Robin were extremely helpful."
Jenny Bock, Head Coach, Spectre Soccer Club, Illinois
"The tournament was great and the whole tour very well organized. We had a great experience on our trip to Holland and have nothing but great comments for both Sijmen and Dirk. We would have been lost without their guidance, support, organization and humor. They took charge and managed all the details regarding accommodations, transportation, setting up activities and the tournament details."
Sandy Wills, Team Manager, Darlington Soccer Club, Ontario, Canada
"Eurotech® Soccer Tours were tremendous to work with - before, during and after our pre-season trip to Great Britain. Everything was well organized. There was always someone on hand to assist with any problems that arose. The games we played were exactly what the team needed to prepare them for the season. The Lady Cyclones not only enjoyed the experience of playing top professional teams but also the chance to travel and spend time in places that will always hold some great memories. I would have no reservations choosing Eurotech® again when we embark on our next trip."
Kevin Davies, Head Women’s Soccer Coach, Centenary College, New Jersey
“The tour was fantastic and the Eurotech® representatives in England were very helpful every step of the way. Our team had the opportunity to train in West Ham’s stadium and the experience is still being talked about! The guest coaching was first class and we definitely plan to travel again in the future with Eurotech® Soccer Tours!”
Carol Cunningham, Team Manager, Southern Chester Soccer Association, Pennsylvania
“Eurotech® is a wonderful camp and tour company and a great place to improve skills and excel in soccer! Their many programs can certainly help students gain confidence and composure on and off the field.”
Janusz Michallik, Former U.S. National Team Member, MLS & MISL Pro Player, ESPN Commentator
“I just wanted to thank you and your group for providing our women’s soccer team with such a great experience in London. I was pleased with how well the trip was organized and I appreciate all that your group did to take care of our women’s soccer team. Bethan did a wonderful job as our tour guide and was very helpful. We were also grateful for the hospitality shown to us by the teams at Fulham and Cambridge. I know that Marcus is already planning for another possible trip in three years. It is my sincere hope that your group will be able to provide us with another outstanding trip. Thanks again for all of your efforts.”
John Neese, Director of Athletics, Hardin-Simmons University, Texas
“I want to let you know we all enjoyed ourselves and felt the mix between soccer and culture was just about perfect. The Bolton Wanderers Academy experience was simply outstanding! We easily could have spent another day or two with them. The kids loved it. Staying at Chigwell was also a tremendous time. They made us feel completely at home by essentially opening their school to us. We’re all envious of the quality of their multiple football pitches. We wish we had one that nice. It was a great time.”
Don Bucci, Kutztown High School, Pennsylvania
“We did a London/Gothia Cup tour this past summer. It was a wonderful experience and all our contacts excellent. Thanks to Jim Risher and Eurotech® for the work. The girls finished 2nd at Gothia Cup. I have encouraged all our teams to take a good look at such a trip…truly the experience of a lifetime.”
Janet Hollady, Team Manager, Baton Rouge Soccer Club-U15 Girls & Marvin Smith, BRSC Coaching Director, Louisiana
“It was a fantastic cultural and athletic experience for all the players and coaches. We were able to visit Milan, Venice, Florence and San Marino, where the tournament was held, as well as enjoy the sights and fun along the Adriatic coast. The team was exposed to the many delights of the Italian culture including the language, the foods and the gorgeous Tuscan scenery. The boys played against teams from Italy, Greece and even two teams from New England. The competition was fierce as soccer is very highly regarded in Europe.”
Federico Fiondella, Coach, North Haven High School, Connecticut
"Your group did an excellent job. Our trip went very well. Everyone involved with Eurotech®/STI seemed to be working hard to make sure that we were satisfied customers. Thank you for all your hard work to give us a memorable trip."
Marcus Wood, Coach, Hardin-Simmons University, Texas
"Thanks for everything. We had a great trip. We definitely held our own, going 3-1-2 with 4 shutouts. I think we could have done better in the tournament but we just weren’t very creative in our attack when we needed to be and one of our best players got hurt in the second-to-last game and could not play in our final match. But we did have a couple of scouts ask about a few of our players and the boys had a great time. I don’t think we will be able to do it again next year, but we are definitely planning on the year after next. The Eurotech®/STI staff were great and all the accommodations and travel were more than we expected. Thanks again and let me know when you know about the coaching trip."
Andrew Staiano, Head Coach Boys Varsity Soccer, Agoura High School, California
"I have been meaning to email but haven’t because I am playing catch up. We had a BRILLIANT time. Everything was great. We would have liked stronger teams as we killed the teams we played but totally realize you can’t assess anyone’s standards - the English team or us. Plus we like coming home telling everyone we won! We won 6-2, 10-0 and 7-0. Anyway, we had a great time. Loads of funny stories, many many memories and the team really bonded. I thought we were well bonded anyway but now we really are. Let’s chat soon. I would actually like the address of your office in London and Heyfordian as I am going to send a letter to the companies because we lucked out with the driver and rep who were both fantastic. We ended up buying them gifts because the team loved them. Thanks for everything from your end."
Gail Osborne, Coach, Pinewood Preparatory School, South Carolina
"I want to thank you both for arranging and herding my husband and I along with Bret’s soccer team. We had a wonderful trip, learned many things about the city and FC Barcelona, saw many historic sights (our minder, Rickie was an excellent guide), met a retired matador and walked more miles than any grandmother should. The hotel was just right and we met an ice hockey team from Scotland and a professional women’s basketball team fromt the Canary Islands, but I think the next time we return we will be on the golden agers bus! Trying to keep up with 20 year old athletes is tough! Thanks for a great job."
