National Championship Class 2024

NOTE: Please read below for information regarding Hotel Requirements, Roster Collection, Schedule, and Disclaimers.

 A. Stay to Play Requirements: 

Working in conjunction with the Lake Charles Visitors Bureau, we have secured hotels throughout the city. Rates may vary by hotel choice. We have worked with the Lake Charles Visitors Bureau (CVB) to ensure hotels across the city with competitive rates to fit various budgets from economy hotels to resort-style hotels. The minimum required rooms for the week are 60 room nights per team. The room requirement comprises all players, coaches, and family members associated with the team. You may select more rooms in advance if desired. A link will be provided to coaches for each team’s hotel accommodations and can be forwarded to parents to complete their hotel reservations. Please note, there will be a limited timeframe to complete the hotel reservations. Failure to complete a hotel reservation as a part of this stay to play event will result in a cancellation of the team’s registration at that time and the deposit will not be refunded. Our goal is to be sure all groups and families have a seamless registration process, so please be diligent about your timeframes. Almost every hotel has a cancellation process with lead times and emergencies. There will be a $500 deposit for hotels. The deposit will be added to the second installment and refunded in August if the hotel requirements are fulfilled.

Teams must strictly follow hotel reservation timelines. Once registration has been opened for 2021, we will provide you the timeframes for hotel reservations.

 B. Note on Rosters: 

The Roster Deadline is May 31st for all events and rosters must be completed on SportThread. No other forms of collection are acceptable.
