We will provide you with specific details for flight arrangements, drop off and pick up times once we have a clear understanding of where players are traveling from, as we will try to make it as convenient as possible for you.
To further enhance the experience for the players, we will be staying at a hotel provided by the tournament. We will forward to parents the name, address and telephone number of our hotel as soon as it is assigned to us.
We have over 25 years of experience organizing and running international trips. Our Next Gen delegation will include Next Gen Development Directors, Next Gen staff and guest international coaches.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner will be provided.
In order to better develop the self-responsibility and maturity of the players, this trip will be for players only. Parents are welcome to travel to watch the matches but must secure separate ground/air transport as well as separate lodging. This is done because we are working to better prepare players for potential U.S. National Team Programs, Professional Club travel and future College preparation.
Players are permitted to travel with cell phones and will be asked to contact parents once we land in Holland and continually until we arrive back in the U.S.
In the event of a family emergency, parents will be given emergency contacts:
