Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is Sobriety Sports Tours affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous or any other 12-step organization?
A: No, absolutely not. We are an outside enterprise, and Alcoholics Anonymous is not affiliated with any outside enterprise. We do, however, honor and have reverence for the traditions. If we couldn’t operate in that spirit, we wouldn’t operate at all.
Q: How structured is a Sobriety Sports Tours trip?
A: The schedule and format is tailored specifically for each trip, depending on the length of the tour, the destination, and the event itself. Baseball and golf trips afford us the opportunity for fellowship, meetings and speakers on the tour bus. Trips to Wimbledon, the Final Four and elsewhere include breakfast fellowship and meetings, and we get creative from there. There will be times, but not always, when we let the group conscience make the decision.
Q: How much are we on our own?
A: There is free time each day for sightseeing, shopping, etc., away from the group. And participation for all tour-related activities is always optional. Tour guides with long-term sobriety will be on each trip to assist with down-time activities.
Q: If we travel as a group, are all of our tickets together?
A: When possible, but not necessarily. Some events, it’s simply impossible to buy large blocks of tickets. Every effort will be made, though, to accommodate friends who want to sit together.
Q: Do I have to be in recovery in order to go on Sobriety Sports Tours trips?
A: Yes and no. First and foremost, we hope to appeal to those whose primary purpose is to stay sober and help others to achieve sobriety. But we welcome family and friends who appreciate the spirit of these trips.
Q: How about my anonymity?
A: We respect it and we will do everything possible for those who wish to maintain their anonymity. But obviously with hotel registrations, etc., there are limits.
Q: What exactly am I paying for?
A: That’s spelled out in each specific package. Golf trips, for example, include greens fees but not caddies or tips. Baseball trips include some meals, not others. There’s one constant. You are not paying to hear speakers tell their stories, and you are not paying to go to meetings.
