EUROPE

 


Look no further as NAA is proud to have represented and continues to represent Canada at prestigious Tournaments in Europe! Each year NAA sends a number of Teams to play in this Tournament as well as to enjoy the European country side in a way and manner that is specifically designed for the hockey player and their traveling companions. 

NAA has been rewarded with an increasing demand to provide additioanl Teams to participate in Tournaments around Europe in both the Spring and Summer of 2014!! It is the reputation of our Organization and the demeanor of the teams participating which has lead to Tournament Organzers requesting our attendance at their Tournaments. Careful considerations will always be given by NAA to ensure that the hockey and cultural experience is of a high value. Our organization was seen as a dedicated and commited program that truly promotes the development of ALL hockey players, both on and off the ice.

The Northern Alberta Hockey Association, in partnership with 'SELECTS SPORT TOURS' (BONDED TRAVEL AGENCY) offer many years of quality experience! Besides the top quality hockey, the 4 and 5 star accomodations, the culture expereince in visiting and seeing many local attractions, 'SELECTS SPORT TOURS' look's after you like no other tour company! Entry to these Tournaments, cultural tours and a qualified guide accompanies each and every group.

Each travel package is approximately two weeks in length, but is put together with your input well in advance so that proper clearances and schedules can be made. It is the general agreement of the group that determines where and when the group will travel. The Tournament itself is in a set time period, so all Teams will be there at that one time. Traveling before and / or after is where the cultural experience comes in!

Selection and participation on the Teams is determined be the coaching staff. As there is a set cost involved for every individual, first come - first onboard is a consideration in determining the Team. Players must possess the skills, attitude and commitment necessary to be successful in traveling with the Team. When deposits are ACCEPTED, then a player is accepted to the Team.

This coming year there will be a U18 team travelling to Budapest. It is not necessary for players to commit to both Spring & Summer Teams in order to play for that age group, unless they so choose to do so.

The Executive of both NAA and our travel agency, SELECT SPORTS TOURS. have set specific guidelines for participation and in informing the participants what is expected.

To give you a fair understanding of what takes place, please take the time to speak with Paul Schmidt who have been responsible for sending Teams and being with Teams in Europe for over 15 years!

What will happen is that each participant will depart from Canada for a unique fun filled two week holiday.

Your ticket includes a mix of sightseeing, hockey and free time to shop or explore things that offer something for everyone in the family. This high caliber tournament brings together teams from Canada and throughout Europe.

Our goal is to be a good representative for Canada in this Tournament! We will take the best Team possible, but our primary goal is to give the players an opportunity to enjoy this unique experience. This is NOT a win at all costs Team!

We will take only seventeen players (might vary depending on players available and coaching decisions) so that all players receive a good amount of playing time. Your tour contains approximately seven to eight hockey games. High caliber athletes from throughout Canada are welcome on this 'Once in a Lifetime' opportunity for a player and family. Players will be selected on a first come first served basis and your deposit is your guarantee of participation. The Team holds practices prior to departure.
