Men's Hoops Travel to Germany and Czech Republic

by B.J. Spigelmyer | Aug 08, 2013

The DeSales University men's basketball team will be taking an international trip for the fifth time in the last 15 years this August. The team traveled to Ireland in 1999, the United Kingdom in 2003, Italy in 2006, and France in 2009.  This summer the team will travel to Munich, Germany and Prague, Czech Republic.

The 8-day tour will include trips to Zugspitze - the highest point in the German Alps, Dachau Concentration Camp and the Hofbrauhouse.  Also, the Bulldogs will get to compete in four games vs. professional and club teams from Prague & Munich. 

The team has been fundraising for the past three years by running AAU tournaments, team camps, day camps & shooting clinics for the youth in the Lehigh Valley.  This powerful, cultural and competitive trip will be one of the high points of the DeSales experience for these student-athletes.

Other Bulldogs who have traveled internationally include the men's soccer team who went to Ireland this past spring break in March and the women's volleyball team who traveled to Italy a few years ago.
