STAY TO PLAY POLICY & EXEMPTION INFO
All Heart of America tournaments are “stay to play” events. In order to participate in the tournaments, all teams are required to book their lodging through our housing partner, Team Travel Source (TTS). Any reservations booked through a third party provider (i.e. hotels.com, Expedia, Hotwire, etc.), booked directly with the property, or through any other method other than through Team Travel Source will NOT fulfill the lodging requirement and those teams WILL NOT be placed in the tournament*.
The following situations are approved exemptions to the stay to play policy.

Please book the room through the hotel directly and upload a copy of your reservation showing that points were used to book your entire stay to the online form below. Please make sure to list the athletes name on your email so they are an approved exemption. Please note that just ‘receiving points’ for staying at a hotel does not qualify for an exemption. You must be redeeming for an entire free stay.
