Stay Smart Tier 1 & Tier 2 both require athletes to stay in partner hotel blocks.
There are three exceptions to this requirement;
however, these must be verified as explained below.
USING POINTS FOR A FREE ROOM
If you have enough points to redeem them for an entirely FREE stay, you are allowed to do so. Please book the room through the hotel directly and upload a copy of your reservation showing that points were used to book your entire stay to the online form below. Please make sure to list the athletes name on your email so they are an approved exemption. Please note that just ‘receiving points’ for staying at a hotel does not qualify for an exemption. You must be redeeming for an entire free stay.
LIVING IN CLOSE PROXIMITY
If your gym is within 90 miles from the venue, you are not required to stay in a hotel. This must be able to be verified through mapquest.com. Please fill out the online form below and list the name of the program with the athlete’s names.
If you are able to get a lower rate with a military or government discount, this will be accepted. Please book the room through the hotel directly and upload a copy of your reservation showing that a military/government discount was used to book your entire stay to the online form above. Please note, the hotel will require the military or government ID to be presented upon check-in, please have this information when you arrive.
