Our New England Colonials Tours

Celebrating 2018 and 39 Years of Colonials Tours!

We are very grateful to our Colonials' players, coaches, and families for their outstanding commitment to our international tours and guests in 2018. As we start our 40th year, we look forward to our Colonials Ambassadors tour in the spring of 2019 and a 2019 International Colonials New England tour in the summer.

Our very special thanks to all our volunteer coaches throughout New England for their great assistance in helping to arrange our 2018 Colonials' tours. The final week of June saw our 2018 International Colonials arrive from eleven countries for a three-week basketball tour of New England. We were very pleased to have Armenia represented on our roster for the first time.

Our sincere thanks to our donors, coaches, and host families for the wonderful support and hospitality they provide to these young players from around the world. And to the host families throughout who so graciously welcomed our Colonials' teams in April 2018. The basketball was intense, and the hospitality was exceptional. We are very grateful to our host clubs in the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany for their assistance in making these unforgettable tours possible for our New England Colonials players and coaches.
