We endeavour to offer as many students as we can the opportunity to attend but teams and individuals will only be entered if we have sufficient student numbers and we have the availability of adults to coach and/or manage codes. In the majority of cases, students will only be able to participate in one code but these are all worked on an individual case basis dependent on the schedule.
To ensure that we give the students and adults the best experience possible, we do require significant help and support from parents. This would include coaching or managing teams, travelling to the AIMS tournament and staying in school accommodation, and supervising students. Parents would also be responsible for leading any fundraising opportunities. Students, coaches, and managers in all team codes are required to stay in the team accommodation for the week. Each individual sporting code will differ but some will have the option to stay in their own accommodation with their parents. Details will be advised once the indication of numbers is confirmed. The approximate cost for a student in a team is $900.00. These costs include accommodation, transport, entry fee, hoodie, food, and incidental items. Costs will differ for students competing in an individual code that may not go for the entire week.
Organisation for AIMS Games starts in term 1 with Expression of Interest forms open now for completion. We aim to have the group confirmed by the end of May at the latest.
