The State Championship is a Stay to Play event. All out of town teams that are outside a 100 mile radius must book rooms through the USYF Travel management company, TeamRunner. There are no exceptions to the Stay to Play policy. Having family in the area, staying in tents, etc., does not exempt teams from the policy.
TeamRunner has negotiated group rates and other amenities to make your stay comfortable, cost effective and in hotels close to the tournament venue sites.
If you want to stay at a hotel that is not a current host hotel, TeamRunner may be able to source a room block for you. If you have additional questions or need other assistance, contact Sha Leahey, Hotel Director sha.leahey@zimcode or 763-302-9252
IMPORTANT - Out of town team's application will not be accepted unless a booking with one of our host hotels is on record by the registration deadline. However, it is highly recommended that you book well before that deadline as the rooms reserved for the tournament could be released back to the public 3 weeks before the event It is advised that one person book rooms for the team.
Our host hotels will hold the block of rooms until 3 weeks before the event begins. Your team needs to book before this deadline to assure availability.
