Transportation Policies 

District 11 High Schools would love to provide transportation to and from all athletic events but due to limited budgets, that is not an option.  Head coaches and/or athletic directors have the authority to not provide transportation when they deem it is in the best interest of all/most parties.  The following methods of transportation are used by the District 11 Athletic Department: 

ROUND TRIP:  is defined as a bus that takes athletes to a competition and also brings the athletes back from a competition.  Round Trip transportation starts at a District 11 facility and ends at a District 11 facility. All athletes on a team are required to ride the bus to the competition and ride the bus back from the competition unless signed out by a parent/guardian.  Athletes are allowed to only be checked out and ride back with a parent/guardian.  There are NO exceptions to this rule. 

Examples of ROUND TRIP transportation:  (Not limited to and subject to change!)

  • Competitions that are outside the town of Colorado Springs or Fountain. 
  • Competitions in Denver, Fort Collins, Boulder, Pueblo, Woodland Park, Castle Rock, etc.
  • Competitions in Monument that occur Monday-Friday. 

ONE WAY TRIP: is defined as a bus that takes athletes to a competition.  The bus drops the athletes off at the competition and leaves.  There is NOT transportation back to a District 11 facility during a One Way Trip.  Athletes are expected to find their own way home from the competition.  Coaches will NOT arrange rides or give athletes a ride home or back to a District 11 facility.  Coaches will wait with an athlete until a ride becomes available for them.  Please make arrangements for athletes to be picked up and picked up on time or early.   

Examples of ONE WAY TRIP transportation:  (Not limited to and subject to change!)

  • Competitions on Mondays-Fridays.  NO One Way Transportation take place on Saturdays.
  • Competitions at Air Academy HS, Cheyenne Mountain HS, Falcon HS, Fountain Fort Carson HS, Mesa Ridge HS, Widefield HS. 

ACTIVITY BUS TRIP:  is defined as a Round Trip Transportation but will take place in a smaller bus that is driven by a District 11 coach or staff member.  Athletes are required to ride the bus to and from the competition as described Round Trip unless a parent/guardian signs the athlete out.     

NO TRANSPORTATION:  is when transportation is NOT provided at all by District 11.  Athletes will be told a time to arrive at a location and District 11 and its coaches will not provide or arrange rides for athletes.  

The size of a team is a major factor in deciding what type of, if any, transportation will be provided.
