Schedule of Primary Competitions

Registration fees range from 20-60 euros per team per tournament, generally - this is a fee that is charged by the tournament, not by HMDA. HMDA pays the fee and then charges the participating students. 

Most tournaments require that attending delegations bring judges with them - if sufficient number of judges are not provided by the delegation, an additional fee is sometimes required, not exceeding 50 euros per judge.

When the competition is offline - requiring travel - HMDA shall attempt to minimize travel and lodging expenses.
