Cup trip overview
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 2014, 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.
The Staff of the North American Select Team handles everything from leaving a gateway city, hotels, flights, motor coach, uniform tops, metro pass for touring, etc. etc.!
At this writing the 2014 team is complete. We have already begun putting teams together for Cup 2015 and believe it or not we have selected several athletes as our foundation for Cup 2016. If you have the desire to play, have the heart to 'give it all', have social skills that are second to none and are a talented softball athlete - whether in college or high school, Contact Us! We want the best BUT we want the best in attitude AND athletic ability.
What if I don't play softball, can I still travel on the Cup Trip?We allow friends & non-family of Cup Athletes, as well as past Cup trip members, softball fans, and anyone who wishes to go on this adventure and travel with us (of course, anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an Adult)!
Why? 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!
