NSR Athletes and parents stay in constant contact with us. We receive updates daily on tournament results, match results, what the athletes are doing and where they are travelling. As you see here, your 'kids' soon become 'adults' doing their own laundry, washing their own dishes, even learning to cook for themselves. Yes folks you read that correctly. They can function as adults.
