How To Plan Your Sports Team Travel


If you are the Athletic Director or in charge of travel for your school or sports organization, and
your sports team travels to other cities to play in different sporting competitions, you already
know how difficult putting together a trip can be. With that said, here are some things you need
to consider when planning a trip.

How Will You Get There?
Most of the time when traveling with your sports team, you will be traveling to neighboring
cities or states that are only a few hours away. In this case, the most economical mode of
transportation will be via a charter bus. Nationwide Bus Charter specializes in bus charters and
can help arrange buses for your trip anywhere in the US.

such as Nationwide Bus Charter, know how much equipment and luggage you will be taking

luggage, but if you are let’s says, a hockey team, you will have considerably more equipment
and luggage that needs to be accounted for so that the appropriate vehicle can be utilized for your

Emergency Contacts
You are also going to want to get emergency contact information for everyone on your trip in the
event that there is an emergency.

Detailed Itinerary
If your sports team travel is also going to be for an extended period of time, you will also want to
provide everyone on your trip, staff members back at school, your families, and the teams you
are scheduled to play, with a detailed itinerary of your trip. Providing a detailed itinerary will
allow everyone to see where you will be at all times during your trip. This is helpful in the event
there are any delays on your trip and plans need to be re-scheduled.
