How to get the transfer train tickets:

When landing in Switzerland, look for the following meeting points where volunteers will be waiting for you to deliver your group train tickets (round trip) and inform you on the reserved seats:

Accommodation in schools

Where will we stay?

Accommodation will be in schools. Schools will be allocated to nations once all registrations are in. In principle, groups of same nations will be together, as much as possible, depending on the size of the groups and the space available in schools for instance. > More information

Why some additional costs may apply?

Depending on the travel distance, and as not all participants need to arrive early or leave late, some dates are not included in the registration fee. Therefore, supplement for meals and/or accommodation may apply. Please refer to the table below:

Can we buy mattresses and blankets on site?

Only a very few pieces of these will be available for sale (ask at Info Desk).

 If you forgot something, volunteers will be able to guide you to local stores.

What is the cost to buy a mattress and/or a blanket?

Mattress: 35 EURO/CHF a piece

Blanket: 20 EURO/CHF a piece

Will there be vegetarian or specific diet meals?

Hotels

Hotels for Heads of Delegations are to be booked and paid for by the federations, among for example the selection of hotels presented by the Local Organising Committee (LOC).

Hotel reservations do not go through the LOC, but we will be happy to help on this matter if you have questions. > More information

Health / Covid

COVID – What are the current rules in Switzerland (situation May 2022)?

Switzerland’s Federal Council has taken the decision to remove all rules linked to Covid. Therefore, no vaccination or test will be asked to participate in EGFL or EUROGYM.

Should the nations consider it necessary to wear masks, it is recommended that they bring along sufficient masks for their participants.

If a delegation needs a rapid antigenic or PCR test to go back home, please have the HOD or group coach make the request to the LOC during the HODs meetings, in order to arrange the needed tests, no later than 8th July for groups leaving the EGFL, and no later than 10th July for EUROGYM groups.

The EUROGYM 2022 Organising Committee will provide a 24-hour COVID telephone hotline throughout the event: +41 32 551 00 12.

What happens if a participant is positive to Covid during the event?

Should a Covid positive case occur, isolation is no longer mandatory in Switzerland. Nevertheless, for obvious health reasons, the LOC will recommend the isolation of positive cases, and will be able to organize an isolation (max 5 days) in a school room, under the responsibility of an accompanying adult from the nation. If the isolation should last beyond the last night on site, or be mandatory for the return journey, it should be carried out in a hotel at the participant’s expense and under the responsibility of his/her nation.

Will tests be provided on site ?

Should tests be necessary in July, test centers will be provided on site.

In case Covid tests are needed in July, who pays for them ?

Tests will be at the costs of the participants.

What about the 10% rule in case of Covid/quarantine during EUROGYM?

The figures of the latest registration will be taken into account. If participants get Covid while coming to Switzerland or during the event, it won’t impact the rest of the group in terms of number of participants (% of younger/older) allowed. So even if one of the 10% rule gymnasts is tested positive, the whole group will be allowed to participate.

city Performances

How long can the city performance be on EUROGYM?

Each city performance must not last longer than 6 minutes (including preparation of the venue and marching in and out). The groups will have the opportunity to check out the stage before the start of the city performances (size, layout, equipment, etc.).

Can teams from a same nation perform one after the other?

Teams/groups form the same club cannot be placed one after the other, as this would be contrary to the basic principle that each group has 6 minutes.

How long can the performance be on EGFL?

The groups present a city performance of a maximum of three minutes, including entering and exiting the stage. If large apparatus are used, the group may use 1 minute for placing and removing the equipment. This minute is to be without music and is used ONLY for moving the equipment/apparatus. It is not considered part of the city performance.

What about the music?

The music has to be delivered to the organisers two months in advance in order to be checked for quality and duration. Send to music@eurogym2022.ch

INSURANCE

Each participant must have a medical care and repatriation insurance at registration or must take out one with the LOC.

That is all participants need an insurance covering sickness and accident abroad (in Switzerland), as well as repatriation. This will be checked upon final registration to be allowed to take part in the event.
