Coaches Testimonials

Our team had an amazing experience on our Foreign Tour to Costa Rica!  It was exactly what we were looking for in the programs first foreign tour experience.  Our guide, Brooke, did an amazing job of building the program that we requested and in making some unplanned and last minute alterations.  She was with us for every part of the trip and even took the time to connect with our players as she shared some of her volleyball experiences.  I can’t wait to do another trip with BIP in four years!

Darrin McBroom, Drake University Head Women’s Volleyball Coach (DI)

EMU volleyball just finished our first ever foreign trip to Costa Rica.  We had an unbelievable experience that perfectly aligned with our three pillars of EMU Volleyball:  Service, Competition and Personal Growth.  Volleyball clinics to matches in San Jose to surfing and zip-lining through the jungle, made lasting memories and deepened relationships going into preseason.  Our guide (Brooke) through Bring It Promotions gave us a top notch tour, and now are fired up to plan another trip in four years. 

Kimi Olsen, Head Coach Eastern Michigan University Volleyball (DI)

Our 2018 trip to Costa Rica was our third tour with Bring It Promotions and each has been outstanding.  It is hard to put into words the positive impact these tours have on our program and our players.  Being able to blend the joys of international travel with competitive volleyball, service, learning different cultures and spreading our passion for volleyball is truly special.  We are so grateful to Brooke and BIP for providing such an amazing experience for our team in Costa Rica.

Jeff Meeker, Cornell College Head Women’s Volleyball Coach (DIII)

This was my second trip with Brooke and BIP, the first being to Nicaragua and the second being a last minute change to Costa Rica. Brooke and her staff was nothing short of phenomenal. The trip was a perfect balance of volleyball, service, exploring, and adventure. Our team was able to grow together, learn, and be bonded in a way that is unique to the experience of traveling internationally. BIP provides an opportunity that is impossible to beat.

Jenna Ness, Loras College Head Women’s Volleyball Coach (DIII)

Our trip to Costa Rica was truly a once in a lifetime experience. BIP was able to blend community service, eco-tourism, cultural education, and high level competition with indoor and beach volleyball! Brooke is so well connected with the indoor/beach scene and did an excellent job planning beach tournaments and indoor scrimmages. Our guide Bastin was also first class! His attention to detail and organization took the weight off of our coaching staff and allowed all of us to truly enjoy the experience and be present in every moment with our athletes. The impact this trip will have on our young women will last a lifetime. We are forever grateful to BIP.

Giving Back in Costa Rica

Bring It Promotions operates a non-profit educational foundation called the Casa Llanta Fund. The Casa Llanta Fund financially supports and empowers marginalized communities throughout Central America. On all of our Costa Rica volleyball tours, visiting teams will volunteer to support our 3 primary community service initiatives in Costa Rica which include: girls sports development, reforestation and empowering people with disabilities.

Girls Sports Development

Visiting volleyball teams will serve as guest coaches to host camp-style volleyball clinics for local schools and youth club teams throughout Costa Rica. Players will lead drills, teach technique and serve as role models for aspiring young players. After each youth volleyball clinic, we’ll also facilitate a cultural exchange between teams to learn more about the local culture and build lasting friendships through sports.

Reforestation 

Every minute 150 acres of rainforest gets destroyed on the planet. Costa Rica is paving the way to reverse global warming through reforestation and earth rehabilitation. Visiting teams will visit an organic farm to hear from local farmers first hand about the impacts of global warming in Costa Rica. Visiting teams will plant endangered species of trees to reforest the Chichiagua Rainforest and offset their carbon footprint.

Empowering People with Disabilities

Casa Hogar is a non-profit organization to serve and empower people with disabilities in the village of Naranjo, 40 minutes outside of San Jose. Casa Hogar provides food, health care, housing, education and jobs for 60+ people with mental and physical disabilities. Teams will visit the school and volunteer with the students in the classroom, community garden and recycling center.
