MEDICAL CARE AND HOSPITALS
Each AC Milan Camp location run by Sporteventi is chosen based on the opportunity to receive prompt medical care. So the sites at Cortina d’Ampezzo, the Asiago Mountain Plateau and Jesolo Lido are equipped with a public medical-hospital facility able to provide first aid promptly if necessary. The Bella Italia Sports Centre has an extension which can accommodate up to 3,000 people and has its own private medical suite.
COVID 19 – RISK ASSESSMENT AND SAFETY DOCUMENT
For over twenty years, Sporteventi has been organising the Milan Junior Camps to ensure that the young participants enjoy an unforgettable and fun experience. This year, our mission remains the same.
However, we know that fun and safety have to go hand in hand, which is why we turned to SILAQ (www.silaq.com) to draw up a protocol on the behaviours to be followed during the week. From the pitch to the hotel and throughout the day, these simple rules and precautions for everyone to follow—campers, parents and staff—will allow us to make the most of our experience without running the risk of a COVID-19 infection.
DIETARY REQUIREMENTS, ALLERGIES AND DRUG TREATMENTS
All staff, particularly the female assistants, look after participants who have specific dietary requirements related to specific illnesses (coeliac disease), to severe allergies, to religion (Muslims, Hindus) or to family customs, liaising with the chef and the kitchen staff of the restaurant.
Our staff also support participants in case they need to follow a particular drug treatment during the AC Milan Camp or in case they must always carry with them lifesaving drugs.
TRAINING AND WEATHER CONDITIONS
Staff check weather conditions at least three (3) times daily – in the morning, early afternoon and evening for the next day. In mountain locations, in case of heavy rain, the training of younger participants (6-9 years old) at the AC Milan Camp will take place in the gym.
In seaside locations, in case of excessive heat, morning training will take place 30 minutes early and afternoon training will be delayed 30-60 minutes or shortened.
These events are infrequent but in any case staff will protect the health of the kids.
If a participant is particularly tired, the staff will authorise him/her to stay in the hotel to rest, properly supervised.
TECHNICAL GEAR FOR TRAINING
During training sessions, Sporteventi uses its own technical gear exclusively (from goals to cones), entirely provided by Vivisport srl (renowned for providing the goals on most of the SERIE A pitches in the Italian football championship and for providing the goals for the UEFA Champions League Final at the San Siro Stadium 2016). The technical gear involved is of the highest quality and in some cases is designed and manufactured by Vivisport exclusively for Sporteventi and is certified for solidity, quality and safety.
TRIPS WITHIN THE AC MILAN CAMP ON PRIVATE BUSES
All trips within the AC Milan Camp are made on minibuses or private buses. The driver(s) will be on our staff and always available to the camp participants. It is our policy that AC Milan Camp participants never travel on foot but always by bus, even if the football pitch is just a few hundred metres from the hotel.
Kids who need a transfer from the airport or train station to the camp location and, after the AC Milan Camp finishes, from the camp to the airport or train station, can count on a great service provided by a specialist company in partnership with Sporteventi for over 15 years. The drivers are known personally by Sporteventi administrative staff and are in contact with them before, during and after the transfer. The drivers themselves, on explicit request, can perform an unaccompanied minor procedure at the airport and in any case never leave a camp participant alone in case of difficulties.
INSURANCE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE
Sporteventi provides two types of insurance to protect the participants:
- RC Insurance (for civil liability against third parties) up to a maximum of 3,000,000 euros
- Personal Accident Insurance up to a maximum amount of medical expenses of 1,500.00 euros (dental max 1,500.00 euros)
Personal accident insurance is valid only for participants resident in Italy. For participants resident outside Italy we recommend an insurance policy for hospitalisation and treatment in case of accident.
The insurance policies are taken out from the company Allianz Spa.
In emergencies related to accidents, homesickness, illness or indiscipline of the participant, the staff will intervene immediately giving first aid or taking the participant to hospital and contacting the parents as soon as possible to discuss the situation and agree on the next steps.
