This is a stay and play event.
All athletes, coaches and parents must book through Team Travel Source.
HOUSING RE-OPENING PLAN
In order to make this as smooth and easy as possible, we will be re-opening housing in the following waves:
Monday, 4/6/20 - 12 noon EST - If you are a team who was a TIER 1 LOTTERY team, your TEAM CONTACT will receive the housing link to set up a team block.
Tuesday, 4/7/20 - 12 noon EST - All TEAM CONTACTS who set up a block for the original USAV 18s event will receive the housing link to set up a team block.
Wednesday, 4/8/20 - 12 noon EST - The housing link will be posted for anyone and everyone to book individual rooms or team blocks.
Because of differing inventory from the original dates, we cannot guarantee you will be in the same hotel, but by using this schedule, we are hopeful you will be in the same general area or closer!
TEAM CONTACTS - Once you secure a team block, you will only have 48 hours for your parents to book their rooms. Please make sure to send the link to your parents RIGHT AWAY to avoid losing your rooms.
Because you have already paid the non-refundable admin fee for the original USAV 18s event, we will not be re-charging this fee for these reservations. Please book online for quicker results as we expect higher call volumes during this re-opening time.
We look forward to working with you again for the RESCHEDULED USAV Girls 18s National Championship!
STAY TO PLAY POLICY & EXEMPTION INFO
What is USAV's Stay and Play policy?
The 2020 USAV Girls’ 18s Junior National Championships is Stay and Play. This means that 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 link below or through the link provided by Team Travel Source to your housing contact.
HOUSING CONTACTS: 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. All questions, adjustments, requests or cancellations regarding your reservations must go through Team Travel Source as well.
Team Travel Source guarantees the lowest group rates available (exclusions include but are not limited to 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 actualized, USA Volleyball can 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 exemptions are allowed but must be verified as explained below.
The following situations are approved exemptions to the stay to play policy.
