GoPlay Tours Partnership
Rugby Utah has entered into an exclusive agreement with GoPlay Tours, a division of ACIS Educational Travel of Boston, MA and one of the leading companies in the Study Abroad industry. The purpose of the partnership is to develop international cultural exchange programs allowing student-athletes to receive training in Rugby-rich locations such as the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.
The partnership between Rugby Utah and GoPlay comes at a time when interest among student athletes in Rugby is at an all time high and Rugby participation is growing at double digits among high school and college-age participants across the nation with the state of Utah leading the US in growth and participation.
Since 1978 ACIS, the American Council for International Studies, has been a leader in quality travel for middle and high school students and their teachers. We believe in the power of travel to open students’ eyes and change their lives—and every detail of our tours is carefully crafted to help make it happen.
This is replicated through our sports division, where we believe coaches, players and parents alike want the best possible experience, on an exceptional program.
We are also committed to being partners with the coaches who take our trips, and work hard to help them select and customize trips that fulfill their team’s objectives. While we offer a range of trip types to fit different budgets and goals, every trip features, training at great facilities, games against the best opposition, tickets to see the best teams in the world, authentic meals, and centrally-located hotels. We believe this brings our teams closer to the people, places and culture. We’re also known for the quality of our tour managers: smart, well-traveled individuals hired for their knowledge, enthusiasm and ability to bring sports and culture to life.
