NACBA STAY & PLAY POLICY

A Stay and Play Policy has been put in place in order to ensure the success and viability of the event.  It was implemented to increase the amount of room nights available to our participants, while assuring that everyone receives the highest quality of service during their stay in Rock Hill.  As a result of the Stay and Play Policy, the NACBA is better able to prove our financial impact on the local economy, which continues to be essential in acquiring grants for our events.  
All participating teams are required to reserve three (3) rooms for a minimum of three (3) nights each at the 2022 NACBAIT Host hotel properties.  
Reservations can be made via the hotel link above for the tournament weekend.
