World Fastpitch Connection Housing/Lodging Program
World Fastpitch Connection works with an assortment of housing properties to offer places to stay during our tournaments. This helps to ensure a variety of lodging rates and availability of rooms. All out of town teams book their rooms with our housing partners and receive discounted rates. All teams must book their own rooms through a hotel/property on our website (or an approved alternate). If they have a link, you can book online or call the phone number listed. If there is a group code, number, etc you must use it in order to receive the discount and credit for staying at that property. Once your team has booked, you must email hotel name, rooming list with confirmation numbers, room nights to email@example.com. Any reservations booked through a third party provider (cheaprooms.com, hotwire, hotels.com, etc) or booked outside of the WFC room block will not fulfill requirement. Any questions about an approved alternate should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE booking.
Local Teams-any team within 60-mile drive radius may request a waiver on the lodging
