These tours are designed to offer young athletes a higher level of competition than they might be used to through local competitive games. It also exposes students to new educational opportunities, such American College life and English University prospects.
The tours are annual events, taking the students to an Australian capital city one year, and touring internationally every second year. The international Basket Ball tour takes students to the USA, visiting locations such as New York, Boston, Florida and Los Angeles, whereas the Football tour sees students visiting the United Kingdom, including cities such as London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The tours are not exclusive to Sports Academy students, though they are encouraged to attend. In 2014, a selection of drama students also came along to experience life on Broadway and take in the wonders of Hollywood.
