International Travel

The Carolina Rapids is proud to offer annual international trips providing growth opportunities for the club and its players through premier training experience abroad.  Each year, a select group of players are provided with the opportunity to travel internationally to train and compete with top level professional and youth clubs. Thanks to our ongoing relationship with Generation adidas International, these players are provided with unbelievable access to clubs and we benefit from exceptional opportunities for our players and staff.


International trips will be offered annually, rotating genders (boys on even years, girls on odd years). The rotation allows better allocation of staff, consistency of trip goals and meets the players' interests. By offering to two age groups each year, we ensure that no age group is skipped through the rotation. Rosters will be filled with approximately 18-22 players with at least one Director and one coach leading the teams through the experience. There may be more than one roster. There will be informational meetings the fall prior to the upcoming trip each year.
