LOGISTICS

AIR TRAVEL:

Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) connects directly to YUL (Montreal), YYZ (Toronto), BOS (Boston Logan) and LHR (London Heathrow). Weather related delays and travel interruptions in March are common.  It is recommended that travellers arriving on March 3rd, aim for morning / early afternoon arrival times.  Host schools will be offering grouped / shuttle ground transportation for flights arriving before 3:00pm ADT March 3rd.  Similarly, host schools will assist with outbound transportation (pending flight schedules) on Monday March 7th.

 

INSURANCE:

 

It is recommended that in-person attendees acquire travel insurance should the event be faced with a last minute cancellation.   A phased set of deadlines for tournament registration (as per previous years) will note the point at which it may be challenging to issue a full refund should the event need to cancel the in-person components.  Below are travel insurance options relevant to each country of origin if your school does not offer or provide travel insurance for school trips:
