Global Players has teamed up with national (U.S.) and international universities, study abroad providers, and sports clubs around the world to provide student-athletes a chance to study and train while abroad through innovative, unique short-term programming. Since its onset, Global Players has represented over 50 higher education institutions in the United States and more than 10 nationalities to develop leadership and cross-cultural immersion by encouraging participants to stretch outside their comfort zone and give back to the worldwide community through the sport they love. Building on these traditions, Global Players' Academic Partners and staff are dedicated to creating the opportunity for even more student-athletes to use their sport as a vehicle for globalization.

Programs are designed for university-aged students and recent graduates interested in coaching, internships, business, languages, humanities, travel, and international sport development. Student-athletes from any college or university, from any major, from anywhere in the world are encouraged to apply.
