Provisional Itinerary:

Accommodation will be based on four sharing a cabin; as per French legislation all children will have their own bed. Each cabin also contains a kitchen and living area. The accommodation also has a swimming pool which can be used free of charge. Lunch and dinner will be coordinated by the adults on the trip, to ensure all participants are sufficiently nourished

Parents and non-playing siblings are welcome to attend the trip, with the cost the same as the participants. The ratio of adults to children will be approximately 1 adult per 10 participants, allowing slight flexibility for the older teams.

Depending on the passport your daughter holds, a visa may be required, if this is the case, you will be responsible for the organization of this – supporting letters can be provided if required. Please ensure your daughter also has at least 6 months remaining in her passport at the time of travel.

Insurance can be provided by the organisers, if however, you do not require this, a copy of your daughter’s insurance will be required by Sport Experiences prior to the trip taking place.
Sponsorship: We will be working and looking for sponsorship for the trip – if anyone has any contacts / suggestions we would be very grateful for any help (particularly with Etihad!). We will also look to organize fund raising events prior to the trip. We will also be looking for sponsorship for the youth and league as a whole, again if you have contacts or may be able to help, please get in touch.
Final costs will depend on flights and exchange rates at the time of payment. Should we gain sponsorship/fund raise, any refunds will be made once we have returned from the trip and final accounts have been completed.

Sports Experiences are currently running a promotion for those who book prior to the end of June. Anyone we register in this period will receive a free backpack. We are therefore hoping that we have sufficient interest to book initially; by the end of September we will then confirm numbers with new members.

After this date we will then arrange to take a 1000AED deposit from you (we will arrange a meeting to coordinate this). If you would also like to attend please include additional numbers in the email and deposit. Please confirm the following in the email:

– Full Name of all attending

Further information will be required at a later date but for the initial booking this will be sufficient.
