Marcus Ziemer, Sonoma State Head Coach Men’s Soccer
JSE organized tours for the Sonoma State Univerisity Men’s Soccer team in 2006, 2011 and 2015 and did a fantastic job at a very reasonable price. The soccer component was excellent with great training facilities and quality opponents, including games against Ajax Amsterdam’s Under 18’s, ADO Den Haag’s U19’s, Westlandia’s first team (2010/11 Dutch National Amateur Champs) and many more. He also arranged great sightseeing tours throughout Holland, Belgium and Germany and our players were able to attend professional games in Holland and Germany, including games at BVB Dortmund, FC Koln, Ajax Amsterdam, ADO den Haag and more. In August 2015 we came again and JSE has organizing this trip again very well with a lot of soccer agains very good teams, sight seeing and fun!
Bob Reasso, Vice President for Athletics / Athletic Director Pfeiffer University
I coached at Rutgers for 29 years. During that time I took my team on six foreign tours including trips to England, France, Portugal and Holland. My team’s trip to Holland with JSE was by far the most professional and enjoyable trip. We played great competition and our accommodations were first class, We enjoyed the wonderful culture that Holland has to offer and we had a trip that was fun and hassle free. The tour leader of JSE, Jay van Veelen was with us every step of the way and he made the trip very affordable for our players. I would highly recommend that you take your team’s next trip with Jayash Soccer Experiences.
Tammy Scott-Zelt, Coach Cataraqui Clippers
I wanted to take a soccer team from Canada to Holland to play soccer, but didn’t know how to organize such a big trip for 75 people. I asked around to a few of my soccer friends and Jay van Veelen’s name of JSE was recommended.
From my first long distant interaction, I was very impressed with Jay’s professionalism on the phone. Jay and I worked together to organize a week for two soccer teams including parents.
The boys were 12 and 16 years old, two teams U14 and U16 boys. I can honestly say that my whole team will never forget our trip to Holland, thanks to JSE and Jay! The memories we have were because Jay planned the itinerary to my request and added all kinds of wonderful sightseeing adventures. Jay had the whole week planned and followed through with everything we discussed on the phone.
Jay accompanied the teams to all events and activities giving a historical overview of Holland. Jay met us at the airport with a double decker bus and had the whole week organized which included team practices and games on beautiful fields, a clean hotel that included a great breakfast, two professional matches, tour of Ajax and Amsterdam, a day in Bruges, Belgium, and many other special activities.
If you are looking for a more private, personal soccer trip for your team, call Jay van Veelen of JSE. You will not be disappointed!
Benjamin Ziemer, President Norcal Premier Soccer League
I have been a member of six Soccer Tours organized by Jayash Soccer Experiences. The tours have included three Team Tours and three Coaching Education Tours. With each tour, Jay van Veelen of Jayash Soccer Experiences helped us develop our trip, find top level opponents for our teams (such as Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Borussia Dortmund), and provide all necessary support for the trip. His attention to detail and understanding of different needs, for youth, high school or college age players and teams, was extremely important in providing a top level experience. He is dependable, friendly and open. I recommend him without reservation to anyone interested in a tour!

As a Club Director of Coaching, ODP Regional Team Head Coach and High School Coach for the past 15 years I’ve had the opportunity to travel with teams numerous times in several different countries. The trip organized by Jayash Soccer Experiences was second to none as they were thoroughly professional and delivered a fantastic cultural / soccer experience to our two teams. Prior to our arrival we had our itinerary, which included our games, training schedule, sight seeing excursions, accommodations, etc. For the players it was a thoroughly memorable trip. The level of play was fantastic! Jayash Soccer Experiences also provided us with the opportunity to watch professional teams train and we were able to attend two professional games. They were able to provide this opportunity for us at an extremely reasonable rate. I would highly recommend Jayash Soccer Experiences to any youth organization that is looking to take their team abroad!
