Top class soccer in idyllic surroundings

Region III Girls ODP traveled to Brazil in April 2017 and split their time between the authentic resort area of Buzios and the cosmopolitan city of Rio de Janeiro and the Copacabana Beach. The team played 3 games against top local opposition – including D1 teams Flamengo and Cepe Caxais – as well as a beach soccer game against perennial powers Botafogo. They also enjoyed daily training with their own high level staff of NCAA D1 coaches and a Foot Volley clinic with a local professional coach

As one of the powers of world Women’s soccer, Brazil is an ideal destination for top level teams like USYSA Region III Girls ODP. The Brazilian teams are eager to host, and our contacts allow unrivaled access – including a game vs. the U19 Brazilian National Team for Region III on their 2016 tour

Discovering the best of Brazil on tour

The group wasn’t limited to soccer fields and facilities though. Our balanced tour philosophy meant they also spent time sailing the Sea of Buzios, relaxing on Copacabana and Geriba beaches and visiting the postcard venues of Rio – the Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer statue
