AFTN in Croatia and Serbia

AFTN travelled to Serbia and Croatia with HiS Print Ministries.  We put on a 2-day Quarterback Camp in Serbia and also met with leaders of the American Football teams in Croatia. 

We had to cut the trip short due to the COVID- 19 but we are excited to get back to Croatia and Serbia very soon.  

Who We Are

Our Mission

To train athletes and coaches for success on the field and to teach them how to LIVE FOR SIGNIFICANCE off of it.

Our Vision

AFTN's vision is to provide elite level training to athletes and coaches all over the world to be successful on the field through sports training, sports camps, and coaches clinics.   

Many times success in sports is defined by wins, touchdowns scored, baskets made, homeruns hit, and how much money an athlete makes.  Many times success is self focused.  

Athletes For The Nations vision is to teach athletes and coaches to use that success they have on the field to be significant off of it.

Being significant is OTHERS FOCUSED.  It is using your time, talents, and treasures to make a difference in the lives of others.  


How We Do This

AFTN trains athletes and coaches through:

  • The AFTN Elite Sports Academy
  • Sports Camps
  • 7on7 Tournaments
  • Coaches Clinics


AFTN teaches how to live for significance through:

  • Knowing Your Why
  • Culture Purple
  • Character, Commitment, and Excellence
