The NFHCA Field Hockey event is a stay-to-play event. In order to be eligible to participate in the tournament, each team registering for the tournament must make its’ hotel reservations through the official housing company, Team Travel Source. Do not book a reservation directly with a hotel as your reservation will not be placed within the stay-to-play policy. It is essential that we have full team cooperation (athletes, coaches, parents, etc.) to ensure your placement in the tournament and allow us to secure enough quality rooms at the best possible group pricing.
The stay-to-play policy is in place to help increase the amount of room nights available to teams and clubs and to help police the rates the hotels are offering. By increasing the amount of room nights actually used for the purpose of attending our events, Team Travel Source is able to prove to the host cities our positive impact on their local economy and maintain lower rates for our attendees. Team Travel Source uses a system that directly communicates with the hotels to get the necessary inventory, monitor pick-up and verify eligibility of your team for the tournament.
Team Travel Source is excited to work with your team and will work diligently with each team to make sure you are placed in a hotel that offers a great fit for your entire program. Individual reservations or a free custom team block can be set up to ensure your team gets rooms together at the property of your choice beginning May 4th, 2016. To place a request for a free custom team block, please email [email protected] or call Team Travel Source at 866-567-7075. Team blocks will be set up in the order that they have been requested, so act now for the best selection of hotels!
