Stay and Play Policy

What is USAV’s Stay and Play policy?
The 2018 USAV Girls’ 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 general housing booking link or through a custom team/club booking 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 and these rooms will NOT count toward 2019 lottery totals. 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.
