This National Championship League has a Stay and Play policy in place (from the handbook) which requires all NCL clubs to book at WPC's partner hotels during the season:
1.2.8. The NCL has a stay and play policy for all categories (15U, 17U, 19U, and MLWP). All clubs in the NCL will be expected to stay at WPC partner hotels for any and all NCL events where a host partner exists. The hotel partners will be listed on the WPC site. Any club who reserves rooms at a non-partner hotel will be in violation of the policy. Violation of the stay and play policy will result in the club forfeiting all of their games at the event and possible further sanctions as determined by WPC.
All hotel rooms will need to be booked through our travel partners. For a full listing of hotel partners in each of the NCL cities please click here.
The Stay and Play policy has been put in place to increase the amount of room nights available at a reduced rate to our participants, while assuring that everyone receives the highest quality of service during their stay. Also, Water Polo Canada is better able to measure our financial impact on the local economy, which continues to be essential in acquiring regional and provincial grants for our events.
