As in the past, the IWLCA Debut is a stay-to-play event. In order to be eligible to participate in the tournament, each team registering for the tournament must make its’ hotel reservations through the official housing company, Team Travel Source. Do not book a reservation directly with a hotel as your reservation will not be placed within the stay-to-play policy. It is essential that we have full team cooperation (athletes, coaches, parents, etc.) to ensure your placement in the tournament and allow us to secure enough quality rooms at the best possible group pricing. While all athletes and attendees are expected to stay in the official block, the IWLCA Hotel Policy requires each team to book a minimum of ten (10) room nights to be in full compliance with the Stay-to-Play policy.
The stay-to-play policy is in place to help increase the amount of room nights available to teams and clubs and to help police the rates the hotels are offering. By increasing the amount of room nights actually used for the purpose of attending our events, Team Travel Source is able to prove to the host cities our positive impact on their local economy and maintain lower rates for our attendees. Team Travel Source uses a system that directly communicates with the hotels to get the necessary inventory, monitor pick-up and verify eligibility of your team for the tournament.
