  1. Organization questions:
  • Take all the necessary documents with you: filled agreement and attached documents (be sure, that the coach could represent your child, list of children, copies of passport and certificates, letter of attorney from educational institutions, etc.) If the agreement was entered into by the person who’s absent at the Eurofest, you should bring 2 (two) copies of printed and signed agreement.
  • The Cultural Festival will be held during the competition, so your association will have 10 minutes to perform. The music or/and video could be given to your Association director or Angel (if you are without AD). If you have additional performances, the schedule contains Stand Up time when you can perform as well.
  • We’re waiting for you at the International Fair (in the gifts you can encrypt your country, team, address, contacts, emblem etc.).
  • Fill the table with parents’ information. We’re printing out the Letters of thanks for parents (fill this table in Genitive and Dative).
  • Make sure to send Letters of thanks to sponsors and supervisors beforehand (we need your team ef number and data about whom you ask us to thank).
  • Write what questions and problems you’d like to discuss at the Coach meeting.
  • Center’s administration is not responsible for the things left unattended. But if your team member loses something, immediately tell the Angel (person who has a T-shirt that says “Angel”) about that and check lost and found or center’s administration.
