ENTRY AND TRAVEL
Meet entry is the responsibility of the athlete, with the exception of these specific meets (Don Wright Team Challenge/Mustang All-comers, Bob Vigars Classic and all SWO Field Series meets). The club will cover the entry fee for these meets, as well as any relay entries at provincial and/or national championships.
With regards to travel, the club helps organize accommodation and transportation for all athletes attending Legion National Championships, but it is still the athletes’ financial responsibility. U20/Open Nationals travel and accommodation is the responsibility of the athlete, due to many athletes having their own plan. However, we do block off hotel rooms for members to book, so we can all stay together. Local and regional meets are the responsibility of the parents and we strongly encourage car-pooling. This includes meets as far as Toronto, Niagara and Windsor.
That said, we never want lack of travel options to get in the way of a member competing, so reach out to your coach or the club, if a ride is needed. For AO Provincial Championships, the location will determine whether the club will make travel arrangements. For example, should AO’s be held in Ottawa, the club would consider arranging group travel and accommodations.
Traveling together is a great time to bond with your fellow club members, and feel more like a team. Ask any athlete that’s been on a group trip and they’ll tell you they enjoyed it. Traveling with the club is not mandatory, but encouraged when available. Coaches travel and accommodation is always covered by the club and when coaches are staying overnight, hotel info will be made aware to parents, should they wish to stay at the same hotel.
