Player Selection: Players are selected to join the NSA EUROTOUR teams based on

the players ability, motivation, passion for the game and desire to learn

    • whether the NSA staff feels that the player can benefit from the NSA method of teaching.
    • players having supportive parents who share the NSA philosophy of youth development and are willing to abide by the NSA guidelines
    • Players ARE NOT selected simply because they are financially able to join NSA tour. Unlike some other organizations, NSA is NOT a travel agency who brings everyone who can afford it on tour..
    • Coaches Recommendations:  We strongly encourage coaches/trainers of ECNL, Development Academy, Premier, Select , Classic teams and other higher level teams to recommend dedicated players whom you think could benefit from the NSA EUROTOUR experiences. They will come back to you better players.
