What is USAV's Stay and Play policy?
The Sunshine Volleyball Classic is Stay and Play event. This means that in order to compete in the tournament, you must be staying in one of the official room blocks set up by Team Travel Source. All reservations must be made through the official housing link or through the link provided by Team Travel Source to your housing contact.
Please make sure that your parents know that they should NOT call the hotels directly or book with a direct hotel website. These reservations as well as third party bookings (Expedia.com, Hotels.com, etc.,) will not be compliant with the Stay and Play policy.
Team Travel Source guarantees the lowest group rates available (exclusions include unconfirmed room types, non-cancellable rates, employee rates, government rates, advanced purchase rates, AAA and AARP rates). Team Travel Source will work with any club or team that may have a special situation (please see exemptions).
Why is there a Stay and Play policy?
Reasons for implementing the Stay and Play policy are to increase the amount of room nights available to teams and clubs, and to help secure the lowest group rates. By increasing the amount of room nights actually used, USA Volleyball is able to prove to the host cities our positive impact on their local economy, thus building stronger relationships as well as helping to offset event expenses, enabling USAV to keep costs down.
The following situations are approved exemptions to the stay to play policy.
