This event is not a stay to play, but we encourage all teams to please utilize the numerous hotels options.  We work closely with Rock Hill Visitors Center, who provides us with the hotels that volleyball families should consider (Quality hotels).  Due to the volume of business we are bringing to Rock Hill, rates should be lower than found anywhere.  

If your team goes outside our block, we only ask you provide us a hotel form, so we can provide to City of Rock Hill, which shows the city our events bring economic impact dollars to the city.  This helps us acquire the facility over other sports who seek the facility.
