The team is planning to attend the Y Regional Championships in Federal Way, February 22-24.  We have reserved a 56 passenger bus to travel to this meet.  We have reserved rooms for swimmers who travel to Federal Way without their parents.  Swimmers will room together.  The coaches will be responsible for creating rooming assignments. The bus and a large block of rooms have already been reserved.   

Swimmers will miss 1 day of school (Friday) and should notify their teachers accordingly.    A list of the events your swimmer is qualified in is updated after each meet and can be found in the Members Only area under the “Meet Qualifiers” tab or on the Home Page on the large 2019 Y Regional Championships button.

Early Friday, February 22 - board bus and depart Boise for Federal Way.  Swimmers should pack a lunch for the day—small coolers which fit under the bus seat are best.  

Sunday, February 24 - Depart from Federal Way at the end of the meet for Boise, arriving back in Boise around 1:00 am. If there is any change to the return time, swimmers will notify their parents.

Our team hotel block (rooms used by swimmers riding the bus) is at the Comfort Inn.  If your swimmer will be staying with a parent and will not be using one of the team rooms, PLEASE let the team admin know so we have an accurate count of swimmers who need housing. 

Swimmers are welcome to keep any routine medications such as Advil, Tylenol, etc. in their possession.  Prescription medications such as ADHD medications, narcotics, or sleep aids should be given to the chaperone and dispensed as directed on the bottle.  

All swimmers must complete all pages of the Team Travel Policy.  This policy can be found
 HERE .  Please give your completed forms to Coach Todd no later than Wednesday, February 20. 

Breakfast- at the hotel
Lunch – Saturday and Sunday
Dinner –Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Bus passengers will be transported to and from the pool each day on the team bus.      

If there is space available, swimmers who do not ride the bus to and from Corvallis may ride the bus to the pool each day for a fee of $25 for the weekend.

The swimmer cost for the meet for travel, hotel, and meals will be approximately $200 per swimmer and will cover the following group expenses:

  • The hotel rate is $120 per room night, plus tax (4 swimmers to a room) or approximately $70/person for 2 nights.
  • The swim team is subsidizing half of the bus cost.  Therefore, the cost of the bus will be approximately $50/person, depending on the final number of passengers.
  • Meals will average $10 per person per meal to include dinner Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Additionally, snacks such as bagels, trail mix, fruit, etc. will be purchased to assure no one runs out of fuel.  Total for meals = approximately $75.
  • Meals and lodging will be billed to accounts after the meet. 

Payment for Bus Passengers
In order for your bus reservation to be considered complete, all forms and payment must be received by the bus reservation deadline of February 15.  Payment may be made by check or by credit card--choose which payment option you want to use when checking out.  There will be a $2 transaction fee added at checkout for anyone using a credit card. The team will charge a cancellation fee of $25 for anyone who cancels their bus reservation after the deadline unless their seat can be filled by someone from the waiting list.
