Calling all student-athletes! Each fall semester, IES Abroad is partnering with Old World Baseball to offer students the chance to study abroad for a semester while preparing for their spring baseball and softball season.

How it Works

Fall Ball Abroad is intentionally offered in the fall semester so softball and baseball student-athletes can improve during their off season and return to their home campuses prepared for their seasons. Fall Ball Abroad abides by all NCAA rules and regulations.
