Team Travel

Encourage the personal and athletic development of your players while strengthening your team's chemistry, culture, and identity by experiencing new cultures through the universal language of baseball.

Join forces with JapanBall to create a customized international tour for your baseball or softball team. Available for:

This is not your typical travel ball trip!

Our team travel tours provide a unique opportunity to immerse your players, coaches, and parents in a new culture while engaging in the sport you love. Other travel ball tours just attempt to pack in as many games as possible, resulting in hours of downtime and commuting between the hotel and the ballfield. Not ours!

JapanBall offers a thoughtfully designed experience that is perfect for developing both athletic ability and character on and off the field. Sure, there will be games, but that’s just the beginning because we believe that baseball is the perfect vehicle to experience the unfamiliar. 

In addition to traditionally competitive games with local teams, we will facilitate mixed games in which each side is a combination of local and visiting players and also joint practices and workouts. We will also facilitate sightseeing, leisure time, team meals prepared by local hosts, and opportunities for community service and outreach.

This is what differentiates our boutique, customized trips from other travel ball opportunities. Our trips immerse players, coaches, and parents into the local culture on and off the field.

Current Offerings:

Team Baseball Tours to Japan

Japanese drills, in-and-outs, warm-ups, etc. will all be included! Moreover, you’ll take in incredible Japanese sights and experience this unique culture.
