Age categories and selection

Players born between 2003 and 2006 must apply for participation, as we select participants based on their level. For players born in between 2007 and 2009, NF Elite Training Camp is an open offer. Players of this age do not have to apply, but can send us an email to to access the booking form. However, we note that the level of participating players is usually high.

Collaboration with Sporting

During the week two training sessions in 90 minutes will be held at the Sporting Academy with the assistance of the club’s own academy trainers. The players will get a tour of the academy and an insight into its professional life. In addition, players get the opportunity to play a training match against Sporting’s own talent team (given there are enough players in each age category)!

With this activity, we want to expose our players and coaches to one of the leading gaming development communities in Europe, gaining inspiration for further enrichment of our development philosophy and building a strong long-term relationship with this club so that we can continue to send our best players for training in Sporting. And maybe equally important – creating an unforgettable experience for players who participate in our programs.

Supervision of players, room allocation and accommodation

Players stay in rooms with other players, but it is possible to apply for a dispensation if parents have an adequate reason why a participant should stay in the parents’ room.
