NBC International Tours - United Kingdom - Germany - Italy

Every year NBC Camps selects athletes who demonstrate exceptional skill and outstanding character to represent NBC Camps playing overseas on NBC Camps International Tour Teams.

If you love your sport (basketball, volleyball, or soccer), you love to travel and then make life long friendships, I want to invite you to consider participating in an NBC International Tour.

You must be 14 years or older by January 1, 2014 to tryout for a 2014 tour. There are two levels of basketball tours. Junior Teams are 14,15 and 16 when they travel and Senior Teams must be 16,17, 18 and 19. Volleyball  members can be any age above 14. The age requirements are set by International rules for teams.

The athletes who make it through the first round of tryouts, will then need to submit two recommendations and a parental letter to continue the process. After an athlete is chosen, she or he is placed on a team and sent a manual which explains everything about the tour process for the year.

Please apply for consideration.  All monies will be refunded for those not accepted.

Camp Details

HISTORY
NBC Camps is so excited to start our 35th season of NBC International Tours. NBC Camps has sent athletes from the United States and Canada all over the world to play basketball, volleyball and soccer.   Hundreds of athletes have experienced an NBC International Tour.  Many today consider the tour to be one of the greatest experiences of their lives.

TOUR DETAILS
The tour includes one training camp which begins before you leave on tour.  Included in the cost are all lodging, two meals per day, sightseeing, great uniforms along with track suits, and a travel bag with journal and bible.  You will have the opportunity to meet young people from around the country and to grow as a person in every area of your life.  This is a great opportunity to study history first hand.  Imagine walking London or Paris in a day, standing in the Sistine Chapel in Rome, riding in a water taxi in Venice or visiting the castles!  How about riding bikes in Berlin and stopping by the remains of the wall or stopping at Check Point Charlie, walking on the Roman wall in Chester, England! Imagine being able to see up close some of the most famous tourist attractions in the world!!!!!

You will grow spiritually through an NBC Tour.  We at NBC International Tours combine the intensity of athletics with Christian values.  Through personal life examples, reflective thought, journaling and group discussions our coaches/staff endeavor to inspire athletes to love life, love others and to love God.  For many young people this experience is a lifetime highlight and turning point.  While all faiths are honored and all faiths have been represented on a tour over the years, the tour does emphasize a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

PHILOSOPHY
NBC International Tours is a branch of NBC Camps designed to further our mission to encourage athletes to lead a life of physical, mental, social and spiritual excellence.  NBC International Tours has a four-fold purpose:
1. Provide an opportunity for students to compete overseas.
2. Allow student athletes to experience international cultures by traveling, site seeing, and games/matches.
3. Provide an environment where students can grow in their understanding of life meaning as found in relationships with others and God.
4. To provide an environment for athletes to become servant leaders. 

TOUR TRYOUT
Every year NBC Camps selects athletes who demonstrate exceptional skill and outstanding character to represent NBC Camps playing your sport on NBC International Tour Teams.  If you are selected this summer, you will travel next summer competing against top foreign teams while seeing different parts of the world.  You must be 14 years or older by January 1, to participate in the next summer’s tour.

Athletes can be nominated by their NBC coaches or High School coaches for tour selection based on ability and attitude.

The athletes who make it through the first round of tryouts, will then need to submit 2 confidential references, a parent recommendation/support letter, along with $1000 deposit to continue the process.  After an athlete is chosen, she or he is placed on a team and sent a congratulations letter along with a  manual which explains everything about the tour.
