How Do Players Get into European teams farm system?

I know a European team takes kids from their towns but how do they choose to fill their teams like the U-14 team?

There are 2 ways European teams fill their youth squads.

1. First they have regular trials for any kids that wants to attend. According to performance kids will be placed in the different teams clubs have. Normally clubs do not just have their elite youth team but a few for each age group. Kids normally have to pay membership fees for joining clubs which covers the clubs expenses.

2. Additionally scouting takes place. So teams scouting other youthteams to identify players they want. That is especially what bigger better youth teams do. Youth players normally can swap teams in the offseason. Normally the best youthplayers therefore end up in the the best youthsystems. This can also include offer kids full boarding.

Over here most teams have a bunch of kiddie and junior teams.
Where basicly anyone is welcome.
There's a fee but it's not that high for kids, the county pays any club for keeping kids of the streets (no matter if it's scouts, wargaming or hockey).

When the kids get to U16 many clubs have sports highschool programs, where they combine highschool with hockey (or other sports).

The juniors who don't get a spot on the A team often moves to some minor team, and if they do well there they might get a contract with the big guns. Often combining hockey with college/university.

Not scholarships, since all education is free of charge, but with studies planned to work with their hockey (or other sports).

Are Swedish Universities free for everyone, not just Swedish citizens? If there's a free English University, I'm in beats paying $6000/year.

More on topic, are there trades in the Euro system? Can player A be traded midseason from say Moscow Dynamo to AK Bars Kazan for player B or are players stuck with one team the whole year?

Not sure about other countries, but in Germany players can be traded. Though not without each players consent, only if all players who are involved in the trade agree to it, can a trade happen.

They are pretty rare, there can be seasons without a single trade.

These trades usually only happen if the teams are unhappy about the players performance and the player doesn't feel comfortable. There is no "upgrading for the playoffs" kind of trade, as the teams don't really own the rights to a player, apart from the few years he is under contract with them.

some teams do the same thing that happens in soccer

they get kids and grow them--that is why some European leagues demand money when the players go to the nhl
