Travel & Development Base Fee

Hi Meraquas families -

Hope this message finds you well!  While we are gearing up for the upcoming 2024 competition season, the Meraquas Board would like to provide a friendly reminder on the travel meet costs.  As we communicated during the October parent meeting, families are responsible for reimbursing Meraquas ALL costs during travel meets.  The costs include, but not exclusive of the following:

  • Airfares, transportation, gas, hotels and food incurred by your swimmer, and

  • Swimmer's share of such costs incurred by coaches and chaperones

Same as prior years, Meraquas will charge a travel & development base fee to ALL swimmers in January ($350) besides the monthly dues.   Your $350 payment will be applied towards the overall team travel and swimmer development costs.  

Depending on the travel meets your swimmer will attend, travel costs will be included in the subsequent monthly invoices per participating swimmer.   A final invoice reflecting the balance of travel costs will be billed by the end of the season to the meet participants.

One way to fund the travel costs is through the fund-raising efforts managed by each team.  Any donations solicited by each team to Meraquas will reduce your travel reimbursements on a team-by-team basis.

We hope this helps explain Meraquas's travel cost policy.  However, please do not hesitate to contact me or any board member if you have any questions.

Wishing you all have a happy and healthy New Year!!
