Hotel: Given that we will have people with a lot of different plans, we will not be reserving a hotel as a team.
USATF National Meet (Saturday, December 9th)
Schedule: Same as State Meet
Travel: Each family is in charge of their own travel to and from Nationals. Most of the coaches and team will travel down on Thursday and return Sunday, but feel free to make alternative plans as long as you will be there for the race on Saturday!
Flights: Tallahassee (TLH) is the most direct airport, but you may be able to find good flying deals if you are willing to drive a couple hours from another airport. Right now, you can find flights as low as $350 round trip if you look at different options, especially if you are willing to fly back on Monday. Nationals travel can be a good opportunity to use airline companion tickets if you have any of those as well. Contact us if you have further travel questions.

Hotel: For nationals we have reserved a block of 35 rooms so we can have most everyone in the same spot. You can sign up for rooms in our block using the sign-up sheet below. If you are a "maybe" for nationals, you can sign up for a room now and let us know if you decide not to go after regionals. Our block of rooms is reserved for Thursday (12/7), Friday (12/8) and Saturday (12/9). When you sign up for a room, you will be signed up for all 3 nights as a default, but you can indicate if you only want 1 or 2 of the nights. Its possible that we may be able to accommodate extended family in our block of rooms, but for now, please just sign-up for rooms to cover parents and athletes. If we have extra rooms available for grandparents and friends coming to spectate, we will let you know after regionals. If you would like to reserve your own room outside of our team block, you can view this list of suggested hotels.
