T.I.P. Missions a Ministry of High Performance Sports, C. R.



T.I.P. was created to be more than just a missions experience. T.I.P. provides young athletes the unique opportunity to combine sports with outreach, exposing team members to a once in a lifetime opportunity! Participants will: 

  • (T)rain in Costa Rica in the mornings,
  • (I)mpact underprivileged children in volleyball clinics in the afternoons, and 
  • (P)lay and compete on an international platform with nightly competition against the best Costa Rican high school programs, as well as their Junior National team. 

The trip is open to a limited number of ministry partners including coaches, players, non-players and chaperones.

All of this takes place in an amazingly friendly, safe and beautiful tropical and mountainous country filled with incredible natural splendor that we will visit and see in our free time and day off. 

Robin and Bob White have taken hundreds of high school athletes over the last 30 years on sports mission trips and have a solid network of Costa Rican friends that plan summer  missions. Through HPS Costa Rica, they partner with Athletes in Action and the National Federation.

Costa Rica 2020



​ Costa Rica is often called an “oasis of peace” among the neighboring countries of Central America. This coastal country is known more for its natural beauty than its cultural heritage. It is one of the richest and most diverse biological areas in the world with a wide variety of climate zones and extraordinary wildlife. The main exports are bananas, coffee, and textiles. Total population of the country is about 4.7 million people, with over 1.4 million of those in San Jose. Average annual income is $6,500. It is a Spanish speaking country and has a literacy rate of about 96%.


Passports are required to go to Costa Rica! It can take up to 8 weeks to obtain your passport. This means you must apply for your passport very early! You need to apply at your local post office to obtain a passport. The cost is about $120 and it is good for 10 years. Before the trip you will need to make a photocopy of your passport to carry in a separate bag in case you lose your passport. Passports must be valid at least 90 days after the date of travel.

About Us


Bob and Robin White

 For almost 30 years now, my wife Robin and I have taken and directed well over 600 high school and collegiate student athletes overseas to train, compete and conduct clinics through sports missions.

During those years we have been able to develop long term relationships with the top High School, Club and First Division Costa Rica Volleyball programs and with the leadership from the Costa Rica National Federation and Women's National Team Program. 


Train, Impact, Play
