Tournament Housing


New this season, both NCVA Girls’ National Qualifiers will be Stay to Play Events. Stay to Play means all non-local teams attending the tournament are required to book reservations through the NCVA Hotel Portal and stay at NCVA hotel blocks.

We hope this change will increase the likelihood of teams staying together in the same hotel to help player morale. Going Stay to Play also helps us by securing better rates with hotels, acquiring new hotels, and providing more non-casino/non-smoking hotels.

What is the Policy?

Local Teams will be eligible for exemption of STP requirements.

  • Local Teams are defined as having their registered team/club address within a 25-mile radius of the tournament venue.
  • Distance is determined by the shortest trip from club address listed in Webpoint to playing venue, as reported by Google Maps.

To book a block of rooms within the NCVA STP block, they must first register and pay for the event they wish to attend.

To be accepted into a tournament, a team must meet a minimum amount of room nights in an approved NCVA hotel.

  • For a 3-day tournament, a team must fulfil a minimum of 18 room nights.
    • 1 room night is equal to 1 room for 1 night, so 18 room nights would be equal to 6 rooms for 3 nights.
