We offer some sporting activities on campus but the main sporting opportunities are offered off campus, in local sports clubs. Eligibility for enrollment is subject to dorm staff and host family approval; not all meeting times may be conducive to dormitory and host family scheduling*.
Furthermore, final approval is at the discretion of the facilitating organization/club. Enrollment costs/fees for extracurricular activities are the responsibility of the student and participation may require a specific parental release. The school and Nacel is released from any responsibility for these activities, which are privately arranged by the student and his/her natural parents with local clubs in town.
*Extracurricular activities/clubs usually meet during weeknights which may not be conducive to dormitory timetables/security/rules; possible participation during weekends. Host families must be in agreement with student plans and accept all scheduling/transportation arrangements involved.
