American Junior National Championships

Clearwater Florida March 20-24th 2018

LOCATION: The Doyle Aquatic Center at the Long Center 1501 N Belcher Road Clearwater, Florida 33765

COMMITMENT TO ATTEND: Please commit to attend or not attend as soon as possible so we may finalize our group flight. The entry deadline to enter our team is March 5th so swimmers will not be able to qualify at Senior State. Last meet is Rochester A or Boys High School State.

HOTEL: The team has a designated hotel and all swimmers are expected to stay in this hotel. The hotel for the March Clearwater meet is The Hampton Inn, 21030 US Highway 19 North, Clearwater FL 727-797-8173. We have made reservations at the hotel. More information will be coming soon regarding the room block.

AIRLINE: We have arranged for a group rate on Sun Country airlines departing Monday March 19th at 6:45 AM and returning Sunday March 25th at 11:27 PM. This allows the swimmers one day to relax at the beach after the meet. Booking information will be available as soon as we know how many swimmers are going.

GROUND TRANSPORTATION: The team has rented a 15-passenger van and swimmers are expected to ride to and from the pool in the van. Swimmers will be required to attend all sessions both prelims and finals whether they are swimming or not. The coaches may make exceptions to this depending on length of sessions and individual requirements.

MEALS: At the conclusion of each finals session we will have a team dinner at the hotel. This usually consists of a catered meal from a local Italian restaurant. This meal will be payed for by the team and billed back to the athletes after the trip. The hotel has a hot breakfast buffet that is good and athletes should eat prior to the van leaving for prelims. There is a concession stand at the meet with typical meet food. Lunch between sessions is on the swimmers and the van is available to shuttle to local restaurants. Typically, we have enough time to eat at the beach one or two days. Swimmers need to bring enough money to buy their daily lunch and one or two evening restaurant meals (usually Monday night and Saturday night).

PARENTS: Parents are more than welcome to attend the meet however they need to realize that for the swimmers this is not a vacation trip and the swimmers will be required to attend all team designated functions. Please do not ask to be the exception to the above rules.
