Undoubtedly the highlight of the youth section calendar, each year a select squad of 45 players are invited to represent the club on tour to Holland for five days during the spring school holiday.

The tours - organised by Chris Kirkland since 1988 - previously were run through Wootton Bassett School. However, from the 2002 trip onwards it was decided to run them through the football club.

Over the past decade the club have forged fantastic links with current sister club FC 's-Gravenzande (who changed their name in the summer of 2010 from 's-Gravenzandse SV following a merger), as well as SV Loosduinen, SC Monster, EBOH (Dordrecht), SC EMMA and professional side FC Dordrecht.

Generally, the teams are based at the Stayokay Hostel on the outskirts of Dordrecht, but in 2004 and 2010 exchanges were run where the players stayed with families of host clubs SV Loosduinen and, most recently, 's-Gravenzandse SV.

Whilst on tour the teams typically play three friendly matches. On top of this, the tour party attend an Eredivisie match and visit various stadiums of professional clubs around the Netherlands.

In addition, Bassett's Dutch friends have also visited these shores. In April 2004, SV Loosduinen completed their exchange. Then in 2009 s'-Gravenzandse SV sent over three of their youth teams to stay with host families, as well as their under 19 side, who visited separately for a long weekend. Easter 2010 saw two of their under 18 teams and a Ladies side visit to take on their Bassett equivalents. The most recent visit from FC 's-Gravenzande occurred in 2017.
