Former TPHS football coach looking for families to host Japanese players this summer

Former Torrey Pines football coach Ed Burke is hosting a high school football team from Japan in August and is looking for families to help out by hosting a player in the home.  You would be asked to provide lodging, meals, and transportation to and from school during their stay.

The team is comprised of 19 senior boys and two senior girl trainers.  They will arrive on Saturday, Aug. 17, and depart early Tuesday, Sept. 3.  The team will be attending school and practicing at Torrey Pines during their stay, so most of the transportation needs will be similar to that of your own family members attending high school.

Most of the meals will be breakfast and dinner types, although there will be times when the team will be attending special events where the meal will be supplied.  A daily stipend of $15 to help offset your food and gas expenses will be provided.

This will be the seventh year that the senior members of the Ritsumeikan Uji Panthers football team selected Torrey Pines to be the host school for their “required” senior trip.  It is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know students from another culture, and to enjoy an experience that will provide lifetime memories for you and your family.  Having done this six previous times with Falcon football parents, Coach Burke guarantees that it will be one of the best experiences of the year for you.

In order to insure that the players are in an English speaking environment, Ritsumeikan Uji is requesting that each student be housed separately.

If interested, please contact Ed Burke by phone at (760) 331-7412 or through email at edandloretta@sbcglobal.net.
