Summer Travel Trip to Olympic Trials

2020 Capital City Classic - Lincoln, NE

Jun 16, 2020 - Jun 23, 2020 

Trip Description

Why: The KATY coaching staff has planned a summer travel trip to Lincoln, NE for team building, attending the first two days of Olympic Trials in Omaha, and, of course, competition.

We would like as many KATY swimmers as possible to participate in the team trip. KATY coaches and chaperones will be responsible for the swimmers during the trip. If we have extra rooms available after we know how many athletes will be traveling with the team, we will release those extra rooms to the parents. This is a great way for KATY swimmers to meet new friends, learn to travel without Mom and/or Dad, which can help prepare our athletes for higher level team trips like USA Futures Championships, USA Junior and Senior Nationals etc.., and just have fun.

The total cost for the trip will be approximately $1,600.00; this final cost will be subject to slight adjustments depending on the final number of swimmers traveling with the team. The cost to attend Olympic Trials has been included. We will be asking for initial commitments on or before November 1st  (please sign up on the website) with payment in full on June 1st bill or in (5) payments (all collected through your online account on each monthly bill through June 1st). The meet entry fees will be billed as usual through our online system. Swimmers should bring money for snacks, souvenirs, and meet shirts. We will be taking the swimmers to the grocery store during the trip to shop for snacks they can keep in their rooms.

Coaches & Chaperones: (TBD) - We will announce changes or additions to the Coaching Staff & Chaperones once the group has been set

Who: This trip will be open to any swimmer on the club who is making their group minimum attendance requirements, has the time standards listed in the Meet Announcement (most are between BB & A Times), and is 11 & over.

Transportation: We will be traveling in 15-passenger vans, leaving and returning from Hobby Airport.

Lodging: We will be staying at the Hyatt Place in Lincoln, NE. Swimmers will be assigned two (2) per room and will all have their own beds. If there is an odd number of swimmers there may be a room or two with three (3) swimmers. The rooming list will be announced once we arrive.

Meals: Breakfast will be served at the hotel each morning and will be included with the cost of the trip. Lunches and dinners will be catered by local area restaurants to our hotel or the pool and will be included with the cost of the trip. We also plan on having a dedicated team meeting room, which will have light snacks and drinks available for the swimmers.
