Competing at travel meets is one of the most rewarding experiences in a swimmer's career. They provide the opportunity to race at the highest level, show off a year's worth of hard work, and gain valuable experience that will last a lifetime. These meet do require a great deal of advanced planning, and we work very hard to make the process as easy as possible for our swimmers/parents. Below is the most recent travel information that will help in your travel plans. As always, please feel free to contact our head coach, Josh Gregory ([email protected]) with any questions.
