The two teams touring with the Kookaburras program, an under 14s team and an under 16s, will travel together with a mix of fun and training while in Dallas, Texas, before traveling to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where the players will stay with a network of host families while competing in the Ripken Myrtle Beach Surfs Up event.
