All participants in the Gothia Cup must make an age control to participate in the tournament. This is to make sure that all participants are eligible to participate in the age class they are enrolled in.
Locations for age controls
Age controls are implemented in different places depending on which accommodation category your team is registered in.
Category A (School accommodation): Teams in category A make their age control at the school they will be staying at. Age control is often done upon arrival or at the time agreed with the school hosts.
Categori B (Hotel accommodation): Teams in category B make their age control at their hotel. Age control is often done upon arrival or at the time agreed with the hotel hosts.
Categori C (Own accommodation): Teams in category C make their age control at Heden Exercishuset (big red brick building) on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. They can also make their age control on Monday at one of the following game fields: Kviberg, Slättadamn, Åby, Kungsbacka and Välen.
Make sure you have a completed list of participants with you to the age control. All teams have to complete its participants list digitally on the team’s My Team Info page. The list of participants can then be printed out and from there and taken as a physical copy to the age verification.
All players that will participate in the tournament MUST be included on the list of participants at age control.
You may NOT complete the list with new names after the age control.
If a player cannot be present at the age control, the name of the player must be included on the list of participants when age control is made. The player, along with responsible leaders must then come to Heden Exercishuset and do the age control afterwards for only that player. This must be done before the player plays his/her first game. NOTE! The player MUST be included on the list of participants from the beginning. You may NOT add a player who is not on the list. It should ONLY be done if a player gets injured or ill during the tournament. Then you MUST have a medical certificate stating that Player X cannot longer participate in the tournament.
A player may represent the same club/school in VARIOUS age groups, but the player may NOT represent different teams in the SAME age group.
If a player represents a club/school in several age classes, the player MUST be included on the list of participants for all teams this player will be playing with. The player MUST also attend and conduct age controls with all team this player will be playing with.
