Arranging player cards and medical release forms in alphabetical order will really help to expedite the check in process.
This is a Stay and Play Tournament
The Stay and Play policy applies to all tournaments held at Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex and Garmin Olathe Soccer Complex. The policy states that in order to participate in a tournament event all out of town teams are required to book hotel rooms in one of several tournament-approved hotels located in Overland Park or Olathe.
All out of town teams must book hotel rooms through GCI Travel or they will not be allowed to participate in the tournament.
WHY DO YOU HAVE A STAY AND PLAY POLICY?
We are fortunate to have multi-million dollar world class soccer facilities that were built and funded with hotel, entertainment and economic tax incentives. As the soccer users, for the cities and developers to invest in and build these world class complexes, we agreed to contracts with the complexes and/or cities requiring Stay and Play for all out of town teams. One of the main reasons cities build world class soccer complexes like ours is because of the positive economic impact they have on their area. A big driver of economic impact is hotel nights.
