6.       Injuries

If your child sustains an injury which requires medical attention, SSSA staff will, at all times, follow the advice of the medical practitioner in attendance.  If the medical practitioner advises your child not to ski, this advice must be followed.  No form of parental waiver contrary to medical advice will be accepted.

 

7.       Valuables

 

Both the accommodation and transport are arranged by the local organisers and shared with other national teams.  Parents are therefore advised that any valuables are carried at your/your child’s own risk.

 

8.       Pocket Money

 

Pocket money is only required for lunches on the hill and an occasional extra drink or snack. Athletes should, therefore, require no more than £100euros

 

9.       Scottish Souvenirs / Kilts

 

The international nature of this event means that Scottish heritage will be central to our team. We encourage athletes to seek out suitable Scottish souvenirs, flags etc to bring along to swap with other nations. We would also be keen that our athletes take this opportunity to wear kilts and, if they play them, bring bagpipes - we have a strong tradition at this event to uphold.

 

10.   Contact

 

We may not have ready access to a telephone in the hotel.  We will provide emergency contact numbers for the team delegate and head coaches nearer the time.

 

11.   Parents Attendance

 

We are always delighted to welcome parents in a supporting role at these exciting events. Quite a few parents have made this trip in the past, and enjoyed the experience. The Head Coach, xxx will be very happy to discuss plans with any parents who may be attending the games.
