We anticipate the fee to be between PHP 55,000 and PHP 65,000, depending on the cost of travel. Once we have confirmed numbers, we will get the exact cost, which should be around this figure.
Many of you, we are sure, will have questions, some of which were answered during the meeting. There may be logistical issues that we will need to figure out along the way, but essentially, for now, we need to know who is in. We have to submit our paperwork/deposits by the end of the month, so that gives us two weeks to finalize the 16-man roster (during the meeting, Coach Chris said it was 18; however, we are confirming with the organizer as we believe it is now 16). If your child intends to join the competition, please provide the following:
  1. Player’s name
  2. Player’s date of birth
  3. Will parents/guardians be traveling with us to Singapore?
We will need confirmation of your child’s participation by midday on Monday, August 17. This deadline will be strictly enforced. We will then require a down payment of 50 percent before the end of the month (date TBA) as we have to submit all the documents and payments to the tournament by August 31.If we are oversubscribed for the tournament, the coaching staff will select the best players from the available list of confirmations.If you have any questions (within reason), please let us know. We look forward to a positive response.
