A self-officiated game is an infrequent occurrence for us; however, players will receive notification when such events are scheduled.
A self-officiated game, is a match wherein players autonomously govern the regulations in the absence of an appointed referee. Within these game settings, participants assume responsibility for adjudicating fouls, validating goals, and settling disputes among themselves. The integrity of fair play is sustained through a reliance on sportsmanship and mutual respect.
Laundry services for uniforms are consistently provided as part of the GSD package. Your coaches will communicate the specific details, including the designated day, time, and drop-off/pick-up location for the laundry.
We strongly recommend acquiring the mesh laundry bag that is suggested in our Amazon list to facilitate this process.
Additionally, please remember to clearly mark your uniform tags with your name for proper identification.
Please note: If you have personal laundry needs or if parents prefer to manage laundry independently, it’s important to be aware of a laundry fee of 10 to 35 Euros a load. We suggest considering a conveniently located Laundromat as an option.
Participants are kindly advised to exercise caution and uphold the sanctity of their allocated spaces, taking care to avoid any harm to the furnishings within their rooms.

We would like to emphasize the importance of safeguarding your room key; its loss or damage could incur replacement fees of up to 20 Euros.
It is essential to acknowledge that any additional cleaning requirements or repairs necessitated by the actions of participants will result in charges that will be billed to the parent/ guardian.
In compliance with European regulations, we are unable to store or administer any medications to minors. Therefore, we kindly request that a parent accompany their child to ensure that any necessary medications are taken as prescribed.
If reminders are sufficient to assist with medication management, we are more than happy to provide them as a helpful resource.
Please note that it is crucial to provide accurate and thorough information within the Medical section of your paperwork. We assure you that no child will ever be turned away or judged based on a pre-existing medical condition. The purpose of gathering this information is to adequately prepare our staff and ensure the well-being of all participants.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in ensuring the safety and health of all individuals involved in the program.
