!!! Very important that all of the teams must to have an own trainer or an acting coach! If one trainer comes with more than one team the organizer can't take into consideration the resulting problems and claims. So there is no way to change the tournament's program and match schedule because of the mentioned reason. (for example if two teams have one trainer and they play in a same time or close to each other's date and in a different location).
