Preferred Airport is Midway. When booking the hotel, complimentary shuttle is offered to all hotels in the Midway Hotel Center. When making reservation please inform the hotel of your accessible needs for the shuttle along with flight information that they will require. If the hotel cannot accommodate the size of your group, please indicate that transportation is needed on registration forms. If you fly into O’Hare, we will provide transportation for your team if needed. The Chicago Park District will also be providing transportation between the hotels and the competition venue daily, at no additional cost to the participants. Details on the shuttle schedule, as well as the social night will be included in the Coaches’ packet.
We will be mailing/emailing the complete Coaches’ packet on April 2, 2010. We are working on sponsors, so we can keep the registration fee lower than it has been in the past, but details will be included in the Coaches’ packet.
Enclosed is Blaze Sport membership form and membership benefits information. All participants need to be a valid member of Blaze Sports to compete at the National Competition.
We are looking forward to each and every one of you to come to Chicago. We hope to provide a safe, efficient and an joyful experience, on and off the court!
Remember, keep practicing!!
