2019-2020 Hotel Booking Information posted below!

  • If you are a 14-18 Darkside or National team, please pay attention to the following:
    • Book a hotel for the Texas Fest in the appropriate block for your specific age group (info listed below). If your team DOES qualify for the ToT/TCS in January, at that time housing will re-assign us blocks downtown for your team since the ToT/TCS stop is being held at the Convention Center and will assist in getting your block switched from the Texas Fest hotel in the corresponding towns to the ToT/TCS blocks downtown Dallas.
    • Additionally, IF your team qualifies for the ToT/TCS, we will be assigned room blocks for the ToT/TCS finals in Austin on 2/29-3/1. At that point in time, I will be sending that booking information out to parents/teams who did qualify.  That info is currently TBA until we know who has qualified for the ToT/TCS.
  • Every tournament listing below where the housing is listed as “TBA”, Jamie or Emily will send out via email once we have it posted and ready for parents to book that way you don’t miss out on it! We will also make sure it is updated on your individual team page.
