Puck Drop In Europe
16u Ice Hockey
July 27 - August 5, 2018
Dive deep into the rich culture of some of Europe's most historically pivotal and renowned cities as we explore Vienna, Munich, and Prague. Let ice hockey be your compass as we uncover several off the beaten path hidden gems that often get missed or overlooked. Discover the WWI, WWII, and Soviet history as we visit castles, palaces, concentration camps, small towns, and historic sights.
Prepare to 'flip on the switch' and throw on the red, white, and blue against some of Europe's premier youth ice hockey teams. Retune your ears as you hear different languages being shouted across the ice from the bench. Remind yourself of what it means to represent the USA both on and off the ice. Take Pride. Play Hard. Play With Class.
Get ready to light up your taste buds ready as we eat the traditional cuisine of Central Europe such as all types of schnitzel, potato stews, langos, beef, pretzel, and pork knuckle. Waft the local food productions as we visit small street vendors and big restaurants alike. Dine as the locals do with home-cooked post game meals with our host teams.
Put the history book down and put your Instagram filter ON as we bring some of the most iconic historical sights in the last 8 centuries. Feel the magic of the Prague Castle, admire the intricacy of the Munich Glockenspiel, gaze at the endless architectural beauty of the quaint buildings in Vienna.
