SKIF 10th World Tournamentin Athens, Greece

Yes, it is that time again - time to start planning for the upcoming 2009 10th SKIF World Tournament. The tournament is being hosted by SKIF Greece and will be held in Athens, 7/21/09 - 7/26/09 at the Athens Peace and Freindship Stadium (pictured)

The week’s events include seminars (youth and adult) conducted Tuesday and Wednesday (7/21/09 - 7/22/09) with elimination rounds of the tournament starting Thursday 7/23/09 and concludes with the final rounds on Sunday, 7/26/09. According to information from SKIF Greece, they are suggesting we book our hotel rooms by the end of January. The tournament is being held during a peak tourist time and hotels fill up fast. Also, the hotels in the P Faliro district are the closest to the event center.

To ensure a smooth tournament registration process, all registrations for the SKIF-USA National team will be handled through SKIF-USA Headquarters. We will be sending out additional information regarding registration shortly. To accommadate each persons budget and schedule, we are asking everyone to make their own travel and hotel arrangements.

We will be contacting everyone with updates and additional details as they are received. We are looking forward to see you in Greece!
