Host Housing

We will do our very best to obtain host housing for out-of-town participants, but space is limited and housing cannot be guaranteed. Please pray for God’s provision in fulfilling all housing requests. You may want to make other arrangements in the event that we are unable to find a host home for you.

The deadline to request housing is at the close of registration.

We would like you to be aware of what we communicate to the host families:

1. Stoa families/competitors will need a place to sleep – a bed, couch or floor, and a place to shower as well as a small amount of refrigerator and/or freezer space.

2. The guests will be leaving their host homes as early as 7 AM and returning between 8-10 PM.

3. Arrangements for arrival and departure times should be arranged between the host and the guest once contact information is given.

The host family is not expected to provide meals, internet/printer, transportation or hosting of additional guests. Guests should expect to bring sleeping bags or personal bedding, towels and toiletries as well as their own food.

Please email the following information

• Name of supervising adult(s)* and gender

• Address

• Email

• Cell phone

• Day of arrival and time

• Date of departure and time

• A list of all children needing placement with their ages and gender.

• Cell phone of another participating adult that is not staying at this host home who we may contact in case of emergency.

Who is the supervising adult? *

The supervising adult provides transportation, takes care of emergency situations and problems. In addition, this adult must have signed permission from the parent to seek medical care (for children under 18) and a copy of each child’s medical card. These requirements are necessary to ensure the safety and well being of our students, which is of utmost importance.

Please indicate if your participation in Heart of the Valley tournament is predicated on obtaining host housing. We will attempt to give priority to those families who cannot attend our tournament without host housing. Thank you!
