  • Level 1 - Lowest Level - Recreational & House/Recreational Advanced players only. (No player(s) that have played as a carded player on a travel team within the 2016-2017 seasonal year is allowed on teams in Level 1. If your team has ANY travel players, the lowest group you can play in would be Level 2. It removes the fun from the event for the other teams when this rule is disregarded. Administrative action will be considered for violations of this rule.)

LodgingNEW lodging requirements: NASSC is a “STAY and PLAY” event meaning, as a service to our guests, and without adding to your lodging expense, participants are asked to book any lodging through BOOKMYGROUP, a complimentary booking service. This service is available to teams as well as individuals.

Why the "STAY and PLAY" policy? As a non-profit event, NASSC's mission is to raise funds that go directly back to the soccer community. BOOKMYGROUP's services insure that your lodging is credited to the event and, as a result, gives directly back to the soccer.

Hotels will offer significantly discounted rates made via BOOKMYGROUP.

Take advantage of the lowest rates by booking your rooms early. Room rates at hotels are subject to increase as the event nears.

If you are an early-bird who has already booked a hotel please contact BOOKMYGROUP indicating the hotel name and number of room(s) booked by you or your team. BMG will then associate your reserved room with our tournament and do its best to work with the hotel to insure you receive the most competitive rates.

For all questions regarding lodging, please contact: Andrea Casperson - acasperson@bookmygroup.com - 1-888-832-6745
