Here you will find an overview for upcoming competition travel. Athletes and parents can find itineraries for competition weekends (practice times, performance times, etc.) in the Competition Information Section
What is covered in my athlete's travel payments?
All competition entry fees, one bus seat and coaches' expenses.
What expenses do the athletes pay on behalf of the coaches?
Hotel room space, bus seat or airline ticket allowance and meal per diem.
Is my athlete allowed to ride to out of town competitions with family?
No. All athletes must ride the team bus to each out of town competition. The only exception being trips where airline travel is necessary. In those cases, parents are responsible for purchasing airline tickets. There are no "team flights" to these competitions.
Can I make my own hotel reservations at the hotel of my choice?
KC Cheer will contract with the required Housing Agency for each out of town event. Team Hotels will be determined by KC Cheer gym management. All athletes MUST stay in the KC Cheer designated “team hotels” Parents will be emailed a booking link to the team hotel and will make their own reservations. It is a parent's responsibility to find roommates for their athletes if they will not be accompanied by a parent.
How can I be sure to get a room in the KC Cheer room block?
The hotel booking link will be emailed to each family by Mary Lewis. Housing agencies have strict deadlines for booking. You will be guaranteed a room in the KC Cheer block if you make your reservation before the booking deadline.
Is my cheerleader required to ride the team bus back home after the competition?
No. The cheerleaders are required to stay at every competition until the last KC Cheer performance, but they are not required to ride the bus home. We only ask that you notify your team parent that your athlete will not be on the bus home.
Are meals for my athlete included in the travel payments?
No. Meals are not included. If your athlete is traveling alone make sure they have enough money for three meals/day.
