Varsity’s new end of year event, The Summit, released the list of events that will be offering bids and travel package details.
From NCA’s Justin Carrier:
Team Placement Program for NCA All-Star Nationals – Clarification
Please note NCA’s new “Stay to Play” policy. If you are staying in a hotel in the DFW area, you must book your hotel block through Game Time Travel. Numerous hotels around the DFW Metroplex have been blocked for your convenience in booking.
Teams are not required to purchase NCA’s Resident Package to attend Nationals. NCA implemented the Team Placement Program in order to track and report room night occupancy to the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau. To do so – and to give teams a choice – NCA is working with Game Time Travel to offer a wide selection of area hotels. If your hotel of choice is not currently participating, please let us know and we’ll make every effort to partner with them.
Please visit http://www/gametimetravel.com/ today to make your arrangements. Simply put “NCA” in the search box option, Select your Championship, then select your hotel to finalize your room requirements. For additional questions, please email Game Time at email@example.com or call 866.537.4263.
NCA College Cheer & Dance championships are this week. Will Louisville dominate once again? Will the changes to partner stunt make for a more exciting competition? Will everyone make it home safely in time to celebrate Easter with their family? We’ll find out soon enough. Good luck to all the competitors and safe travels to everyone attending the event.
Every year around this time rumors start flying about this being the last Daytona. This year is no different, but there is no confirmation the rumors are true.
This weekend is the second major competition weekend of the season, the first being December 13-14. JAMfest Super Cheer Nationals will be giving 4 paid and 16 at large bids in Indy, ACA in Ft. Worth will be handing out 2 paid and 2 paid and 8 at large bids, and Universal Spirit, Valley of the Sun, and Mardi Gras Spirit will also be giving bids. UCA College Nationals is also this weekend at Walt Disney World.
We would like to wish everyone Good Luck and safe travels during this holiday weekend.
