Hotel Information
The success of our tournaments relies heavily on the combination of great volunteer and partnership established with our sponsor. HTG Sports is the exclusive travel partner for our annual tournaments. One of the criteria for acceptance into our tournament is that any team requiring hotel accommodations must be secured through HTG Sports. Any team not complying with this directive may be denied entry into the tournament. HTG Sports has secured blocks at the participating host hotels so be sure to contact them early to book your team.
