Welcome. We're glad you're here.

Global Players has teamed up with study abroad offices and athletic departments all over the country to offer a more immersive, culturally significant experience for student-athletes. Get the best of both worlds with hybrid programming for the hybrid student.

Experience the Global Players difference. Let's get started...


What began as a vision in 2008 to offer student-athletes the unique opportunity to study and play internationally has now sent hundreds of collegiate student-athletes abroad. Sport has the power to bridge gaps, unite cultures and even change the world. Global Players is committed to maximizing this great potential by providing programs that support student-athletes through custom faculty-led, team travel and professional initiatives abroad . #playtheglobe

There are thousands of study abroad programs out there and hundreds of tours where participants can play or serve while abroad. But where else and with what other organization can you do it all? All of our programs include four pillars to make each offering unique and impactful.


Through our strategic partnerships, innovative academic courses, on-site leadership training and cultural immersion, we guarantee that you will be learning and growing both personally and professionally every step of the way. The world is your classroom, and we are your guides.


Global Players was founded by two former D1 student-athletes so it's no wonder that this pillar is the one that separates us from the rest. Through our athletic immersion program participants will compete and train in the host country with athletes from around the world.


"Tourists" go abroad while "Travelers" grow abroad. Our goal at Global Players is to help you become travelers. We challenge our participants to color outside the lines, taste and try new things, and ultimately live like a local while abroad.


Our programs take athletes "out of bounds" through a variety of service learning opportunities. Participants gain so much from their summer abroad that we feel it is our responsibility to give back, not only as Global Players but as global citizens.
