Colman Bus Schedule - Summer 2022

Tim Senholtz

Hello WEST!


We are excited to announce this year's Colman Bus schedule! As a program we work hard to maintain Long Course opportunities for our team. Swimmers tend to progress considerably following summer training, and significant team bonding occurs during Colman practices and on the bus rides to and from practice. There are no buses on Saturdays. Please note, we do not prorate the cost. All swimmers will be billed the full amount.


Swimmers should:

  • Be prompt for pickup times at WEST (both departing and returning.)
  • Bring a meal/snacks for the bus (you should eat within 30 minutes of completing your practice!)
  • Review the WEST honor code!
  • Be respectful of chaperones, drivers, and other swimmers and teams at the pool.
  • Change quickly after swimming.
  • Bring all of their swim equipment with them to the pool.
  • Collect all of their swim gear and bags at the conclusion of practice.
  • Leave their space better than they found it.
  • Help with pool covers in an organized and courteous manner (if swimming Thursday nights).
  • Keep your phone put away in your bag until you…
  • Text or call your parents when we take the exit #183 for 164th (approximately 10 minutes out).

Parents should:

  • Be prompt for pickup times at WEST (both departing and returning.)
  • Be prepared to sign up to chaperone if necessary (signups will come later!)
  • Alert their coach in writing if a swimmer will not be returning on the bus in advance. We will not release your swimmer without this notification.
  • Pick their swimmer up directly from the coaches at the conclusion of practice if the swimmer is not returning home on the bus.
