eDSC_5225American Football Worldwide is seeking HS senior football players to complete their USA-AFW ELITE roster to compete in an international game of American football versus the national U19 team of France.  The game is scheduled to take place in the Paris metropolitan area on March 29, 2014.  The game comes at the conclusion of a week of cultural and education experiences while touring Paris, Versailles and the Normandy region including the D-Day beaches, Point-du-Hoc and US Cemetery and Peace Memorial.

Nominations are accepted from all sources and student-athletes can self-nominate. Selection criteria includes being a starter for your varsity high school team on offense, defense or as a specialist.  Players must secure a recommendation letter from their head coach or coordinator.

Last year AFW ELITE took the first US select team of HS student-athletes to compete on foreign soil against another country’s team that had competed for the World Championship of American Football at the U19 level.  France was the highest European finisher at the tournament in 2012.

DSC_7650Selected players will gather in Chicago on March 22 or in Paris March 23, 2014.  Once in France, Monday and Tuesday practices will take place in the morning followed up by an afternoon and evening of touring.   On Wednesday or Thursday night after more touring USA-AFW ELITE will co-practice/scrimmage with a French club team in Normandy.  A Friday return to Paris includes a pre-game practice followed by dinner and an evening cruise on the Seine River by our tour party.  Game day is Saturday followed by a social with our French hosts and a celebratory dinner to wrap up our journey.

Parents and family members are encouraged to join the tour and take in many of the most recognizable sites of the Western hemisphere and Europe.

Roster spots are being filled on a first response basis so act quickly.
