Lodging Program:

Sports 8 Events works with GH (Group Housing) lodging partner in our tournament locations to secure excellent lodging rates for all participants and to ensure sufficient rooms for all attending teams. Through our lodging program, all out-of-town teams book their rooms through GROUP HOUSING and receive specially discounted rates at a variety of hotels etc. You MUST book your rooms by contacting the GH (Group Housing) partner direct from the phone number listed on the USSSA website. Teams MUST book a minimum of 40 room nights within the GH (Group Housing). Team reservations MUST be validated by July 2nd, 2018. Once you have booked your rooms with the hotel, you MUST submit your reservations online in the USSSA website / Team Lodging Reservation Form. Once the team is eliminated from tournament play the room minimum requirement will be lifted. Any reservations booked through a third-party provider (i.e. hotels.com, exp the teamedia, hotwire) or booked outside of the GH (GROUP HOUSING) room block will not fulfill requirement. Local Teams Teams within a 100-mile driving radius may request a $500 NON-REFUNDABLE BUYOUT WAIVER on the lodging policy. Alternative Lodging Requests If your team requests to stay outside the GH (GROUP HOUSING) Lodging Program (for example, to stay at an RV park, with nearby relatives, etc.) please contact the GH (GROUP HOUSING) Lodging Department with your alternative lodging request. (Because the lodging program has already been discounted from tournament fees,) out-of-town teams that request alternative lodging will incur a one-time lodging surcharge of $500. Lodging surcharge are NON-REFUNDABLE and will be billed separately from entry fee. Teams requesting buyout must be approved by Tournament Director.
