We at NEI are happy to announce that we will be representing the great Northwest, and taking some of the top athletes to Las Vegas during Spring Break for the biggest 7 on 7 event of the year. The teams our divided by state and will go by NEI – NORTH (Team Washington) and NEI- SOUTH (Team Oregon).
The Badger 7 on 7 event in Vegas is widely regarded as the top tournament of the year, and with Spring Break and March Madness going on at the same time the atmosphere will be electric. We would like to thank Scout.Com for helping with the selections of the teams. Scout is the Nation’s # 1 National recruiting website and will be covering the event as well.
Almost every state will be represented at the event and some of the countries top athletes will be in attendance. We will be doing a documentary style video shoot covering the entire trip starting with the flight over. We look forward to bringing you unprecedented footage of all the behind the scenes craziness.
We are very proud of our Northwest athletes as they have showed up in full force at our elite events over the last couple of months in Seattle and Portland. The Barton Football Academy and NEI are excited to represent the region’s top talent and make a run at a 7 on 7 National Title.
