Sponsors of the Cambridge United Coaches Association

Cambridge United are delighted to announce that Sports Travel International will be sponsoring the Coaches Association for the 2013/14 season.

“We are delighted to sponsor the Cambridge United Coaches Association” said Sports Travel International Ltd. Managing Director, Ashley Gowing. “We have long been a supporter of coach education both at home and abroad and our tours help to enhance the knowledge and experience of players and coaches alike.” 

Sports Travel International has been helping to take teams away on tour for more than 20 years and today looks after everyone from Premier League Academies, grass roots clubs and schools, including our very own Cambridge United Development Centre tours each year. 

As an ABTA bonded specialist tour operator, they have also been awarded with the coveted ‘Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge’ and are School Travel Forum assured members. 

“Tours are a fantastic way to experience different football cultures on the continent and to broaden your horizons both on and off the field. Competing in an international tournament overseas is an unforgettable experience for coaches, players and parents alike. And brilliant fun of course!”  said Ashley and we would completely agree. 

Ashley, a qualified coach himself, has personally attended all our Coaches  Association sessions so far and has enjoyed watching different styles and ideas. “I’ve been lucky enough to play, coach and watch football abroad  for many years. I’d encourage all young players and teams to go on tour and we’ll be delighted to help you get the ball rolling.” Sports Travel International have looked after tours for Cambridge United for the past five seasons.  CLICK HERE to view the Sports Travel International interactive brochure.
