Activities for Parents and Players

Team Stay Sports is a family friendly tour operator. Most players bring along parents and friends for the trip. During the soccer tournament parents often will attend some activities and sights the players do not and vice versa. Kids are typically split into groups and attend activities together along with their chaperons. This is all planned out beforehand. Parents, and players, will always feel comfortable knowing where everyone is and who is chaperoning.
