What is a Travel Team? Travel team is when Raider coaches and chaperones take your swimmer to a meet! The team usually rents large vans for transportation. The swimmers gather at the DRAC and we load up luggage and swim bags and head out! Chaperones and coaches drive the vans. Swimmers room with 1 other swimmer in a double queen hotel room and all meals and snacks are provided. Parents can choose to attend the meet as a spectator or stay at home. The team usually returns late on a Sunday for pick-up at DRAC. Swimmers gleam valuable experiences from travel teams. They learn how to manage and advocate for themselves independent of a parent. They get to think about: what to do with wet suits and towels after a session, when to wake up to make the van, how much to eat, what to eat, how to get along with teammates while living in a hotel room, etc. Travel Team is also modeled after traveling with a college team. Learning how to manage all these things now is invaluable to a swimmer who wants to swim in college.
