Europe Cup Trip

The NAST ( North American Select Team ) prides itself in representing our continent with great athletes as well as great people. These two criteria make our selections much different than most. Further, we do not have tryouts for this program but want athletes to know from across the continent that their dream of playing internationally is just a phone call or email away. I do have to admit that we are very, very selective on who we do take and generally do some follow up – normally not on the ability of the athlete but on her social skills, ability to get along with people, personality, etc.!

The support group for this particular team is tremendous.  For Cup 2016, we are taking 6 teams of 10 athletes, in excess of 100 adults.  Each athlete is afforded  the opportunity to invite who they wish (parent, sibling, ect.) to accompany them on this trip.

What if I don't play softball, can I still travel on the Cup Trip?
Beginning this year, we are allowing friends & non-family of Cup Athletes, as well as past Cup trip members, softball fans, and anyone who wishes to go on this adventure travel with us (of course, anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an Adult)!

Why Now? Well, we had quite a few past Cup parents ask if they could travel again with us because they enjoyed the trip so much! In fact, they still have a desire to watch some games, but plan on spending the majority of their time trekking across the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and even England. So, if this sounds like you, and you have a great attitude along with social skills please contact us by email so we can get you onboard!
