Highly regarded for lacrosse, the USA is lesser known for the quality of its netball opposition. But, as Caterham School’s lacrosse and netball tour to Florida shows, the destination offers fantastic opportunity across both sports and can deliver some great highlights off-court too.
Having enjoyed excellent netball tours to Dubai with Sporta, Caterham College worked with us to devise a combined lacrosse and netball package.
We provided a 10-day itinerary to Orlando, Florida, with participation in the 2-day South Florida Netball Festival hosted by Florida Netball Association. Training clinics and time with coaches from Netball America and the Florida Southern College Lacrosse staff also featured and the School’s teams returned with new game strategies, skills and a tournament win.
The tour also exceeded expectations via a one-off highlight as the girls were invited on-court to stand with the Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards at the last NBA game of the season. Taking place at the prestigious Amway Centre in Orlando, it provided a memorable moment that has been covered by Sky Sports Game Changers programme.
“It’s been an inspiring experience for the girls. Our thanks go to Sporta for what can only be described as the most MAGICAL experience!” According to Rachel Hart, Caterham School
Further excursions and activities included a Florida Everglades Airboat tour and alligator show, a visit to Disney Spring, dinner at Fort Lauderdale beach and a day at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.
This tour featured direct flights to Orlando, accommodation in holiday homes, minibuses, transfer to Fort Lauderdale and a packed itinerary included training, matches, tournament entry, plus organised excursions.
