Through the APA there are a number of opportunities to play test matches with teams from around the world. The APA sponsors two Youth Development Teams (Under 16 yrs., Under 21 yrs.) that travel each year to a foreign country or host visiting teams here in the U.S. In past few years the U.S. youth teams have traveled to Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland to play. In addition the APA has hosted players from New South Wales, Australia, who played test matches in AL and CO against our U16 and U21 teams. This is a great way to meet new people and experience international polocrosse competition!
For those lower skilled players who want something international but are not at the level to compete in U16 or U21, there are social tours that bring U.S. and international teams together, but with more emphasis on social fun and experiencing the country.
Minnesota Polocrosse is well represented internationally. We have had a number of players on the U16 ad U21 teams who have participated in test matches in United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, Colorado and Alabama.
