Each year pro club academies from across the world test their players and teams against international opposition. Top academies recognize the player development value gained from international competitive experiences and often travel 3 or more times per year.
Development Academy programs here in the US are now introducing more and more international experiences and NCE is committed to providing the best possible development opportunities for the players within its programs. We hope that by competing at international tournaments and festivals we help provide players with the inspiration necessary to greatly accelerate their own personal and athletic development. International trips provide players with an amazing opportunity to grow, both as soccer players and young men or women.
These events are the pinnacle of NCE programming with only our Professional Pathway surpassing them. Each event is highly selective involving players selected from across all NCE Regions.
