It’s almost time for Futsal Camp UK 2019. Everything is booked and you’re counting down the days until you fly… but struggling to decide what to pack? Here are a few tips from our experts so you make the most of your time and don’t forget anything essential. Have a look at what is included here.
Passport / ID
Sounds obvious, but you can’t travel without it!
Letter of authorisation
A signed letter permitting you to travel from your parents/legal guardians. It’s not en EU rule, but to avoid problems, it’s a good idea to travel with it! Also check the rules of your airline for their policies, as it may be different!
Bring your toothpaste, toothbrush and deodorant… hair gel and perfume. Usually your host family will be able to provide some things but, bring your essentials.
If you are staying in the residence, a towel is a must. You may also want to bring one if you are staying with a family. You will be showering at the venue after futsal training, so you may want to bring your own sports towel. Most of the time you can borrow one, and of course, they aren’t expensive to buy!
Bring your favourite pair of PJs!
Trainers, shin pads and maybe a couple of pairs of socks. You will be provided with 2 full kits and some leisure wear. Bring a back pack and some tracksuit pants. There may be a chance to play outdoors on artificial grass. Futsal trainers will do, but if you have space a pair of TURF trainers may be useful too!
While we don’t have a beach or scorching hot summers, we will go swimming, so pack your swimwear!
A nice outfit
There may be a chance to be socialising and you will want to look the part! 😉
Or use your mobile phone!! But you’ll definitely want to take some snaps!
In England we use 3 pin plugs – bring an adapter for your chargers!
Sense of adventure!
You’re away from your family for two weeks being an independent adult!! You’ll always be looked after, but We’ll have a great time but always be prepared for an adventure, meeting new people & learning new things. All the while, you will be learning English and playing the sport you love.
It’s always a good idea to have some cash for when you arrive and £150 should be enough for you. You will want snacks and sports drinks (water and meals will be provided) and gifts for your family when you are leaving. There will be plenty of opportunities to shop, so don’t spend it all at once!
