Notes on Travel

  1. Players traveling without parents MUST travel on the same flights as coaches – No Exceptions.  We cannot take responsibility for chaperoning players during travel and for transporting players to/from the airport in Tampa unless they are on the same flights as a coach.
  2. Chaperone Fee : There will be a chaperone fee for U12 and U14 players who need to be chaperoned.  Coach Hanneke will be chaperoning unaccompanied players from Austin.
  3. Field Hockey Sticks cannot be carried on the plane and must be checked, so please ensure you have a Stick Bag – we recommend the larger sticks bags that you can pack your clothes in so you can travel with (and check in) just one bag.  Here is an example :  Travel & Carry All Stick Bag
