Team Travel Available Meets

In order to reach our goals, it is imperative that our athletes compete outside of West Texas.  We realize this can be a burden on families, both for time and finances.  For meets that are listed as "Team Travel Available," the coaching staff can take your swimmer to the meet with the team.  This is only for families who are not planning on attending the meet otherwise.  Athletes may travel with the team if parents have schedule conflicts or to ease the financial strain of traveling to away meets.  If you're planning on utilizing team travel, you will need to complete one set of travel forms each time your child travels with the team. You will be billed for a $200 deposit before the trip, and the remainder of the cost after the trip.  Please remember, this is not for parents who are attending the meet.  


Team Travel Only Meets

Part of developing as a swimmer is gaining independence from their parents and learning to rely on their teammates.  Once per season, we take a trip that is only athletes (11&Over) and coaches.  10&Under athletes are included in the competition and any extra social events but parents are responsible for their travel.   Parents are allowed to follow the bus and come to the meet but are highly encouraged to give their swimmer every opportunity to be responsible for their own meet during the trip.  COM teaches swimmers to be responsible for all aspects of their own meet.  These trips provide opportunities to practice making sure they are properly warmed up and prepared for their race, making sure they know their heat and lanes, being responsible for managing their own gear and re-fueling throughout the meet.  

Your athlete will automatically be committed to the appropriate team trips by their coach.  If they are unable to attend, please decline on team unify.  If you are able to attend, please fill out the travel forms.  You will be billed for a $200 deposit before the meet and for the remainder of the cost after the meet.
