Stay Smart Updates
We recently created a video as a resource for coaches to help explain Stay Smart to your athlete’s parents. Click here to watch and share this video!
The majority of our 2 Day events do not require housing.  However, the Tier 1 and 2 events that do require a housing service include the following added benefits this season:

  • Lowest Room Rate Guarantee, plus an easy way to report a lower rate if you find one
  • Block Schedules provided no less than 4 weeks prior to each 2-day event, giving teams the ability to book only the nights needed
  • Ability to collect and use hotel loyalty points.

In addition, we are working with our housing partners to improve the compliance process.  We have heard from some of you that the current requirements can be cumbersome and time consuming.  We want you to know that we are listening and re-evaluating the procedures used by each of our housing partners.  As solutions are reached, we will share those with you via this newsletter.
