Illinois Wesleyan University Softball took their first tour in program history over Winter Break 2017-18 with an 8 night trip to Costa Rica. Head Coach Tiffany Prager saw the tour as a wonderful way to enhance the program with both exceptional team building opportunities for current players and tremendous recruiting potential as a carrot for future players.
The Titan’s divided their time between the capital San José, and the rainforest near the Pacific coast in the beach resort of Dominical. They played 2 games against Costa Rican Teams and hosted a clinic for local players to help spread the game
As with any trip to Costa Rica the real highlight was discovering the immense environmental diversity of the country. From Volcanic carters and hot springs, to tropical rainforest and idyllic beaches Costa Rica offers it all. The Titans took advantage of it in the best way – ziplining through the rainforest, white water rafting the Savegre River, volunteering at the Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge and simply relaxing on the beach.
