Costs to Attend - Package Items to Receive - Hotel Options

PACKAGE PLAN ITEMS
All schools attend the Nationals first register to attend and pay the standard School Registration Fee of $150 (not per team, per SCHOOL). All schools then attend the event through the Team Package Plan. These prices are kept as LOW as possible while still ensuring the costs to host the meet are covered (less than a 2% rise in costs per year over 30+ years!). Within these packages there are four different package plan levels for schools to be able to attend with many budgets. While all levels offer the exact same mementos, they differ in either the number of hotel nights and/or in the over luxury of the overall hotel accommodations. Below you will find an explanation of the different package levels and who is eligible to request a specific level. Schools will choose for the ENTIRE PROGRAM which package level your entire group will choose to attend the event under.

Because everyone becomes a part of the Team Package Plan at the level that is chosen by your school, we are able to easily organize this multi-thousand person event and also obtain quality oceanfront hotels, shirts, medallions, dog dags, pictures, quality judges, and the spectacular competition site on the shores of the World's Most Famous Beach. This is all done at a price that is affordable while still paying for all of the event costs. Through this package, everyone pays their fair share of the expenses of the Fitness Challenge Championships.

NOTE: Thanks to the U.S. Army Drill Sergeant Association and Neon Sports Drink, and the Plaza Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach, the event is open to the general public and no tickets or other passes will be required to enter. We these groups who help to keep costs low for the competing cadets!

The Team Package Plan provides everyone with oceanfront accommodations. Below is a grid outlining exactly what each paying individual will be provided:

Several schools choose to come early or stay later than the standard 2 or 3 day packages, which is why the "extra night" cost is listed. This extra night cost is a PER ROOM, PER NIGHT COST, not per person as the other four, three, two and one per room package prices are quoted. SNI has always tried to keep the cost of these extra nights at the lowest possible level to better allow your team to extend their stay should they wish!

PLAZA RESORT & SPA EVENT HEADQUARTERS INFORMATION
The Plaza Resort & Spa is the event headquarters and is competition home. For those with the budget, it is without question the most convenient and most luxurious property in use for the Fitness Nationals. Space is LIMITED at this property but we do have a rather large block of rooms to use. Make SNI aware of your intention to stay at the Plaza resort & Spa with your Package Level Request on-line so we can try to accommodate everyone's request.


    A FEW OTHER IMPORTANT BULLET ITEMS!
  • All schools accepted to attend the event are provided a "Package Level Request Form" upon registration. SNI will use the information to determine whether our hotel contracts are sufficient and which schools can be accepted into requested upgrade packages.
  • All "to-a-room" prices listed are per person prices for the entire time. Extra night costs are a "per room / per night" cost for room nights stayed beyond the package nights listed.
  • Bus Driver rooms are charged at the extra nights cost, per room/per night. Bus Drivers do not receive any package materials through this room-only price.
  • All schools EXCEPT LOCAL PROGRAMS may choose either a 2-Night or 3-Night package. Local school may pay an alternative package cost that does NOT include hotel rooms.
  • ALL HOTELS at the Nationals are oceanfront accommodations that feature either two double beds (which is the majority of rooms) or one bed (king or queen) per room with rooms blocked with a husband/wife or one individual in the room.
  • Rooms within the Upgrade & Plaza Resort Headquarters packages are VERY limited in quantity. Schools will be accepted into these levels based on the Package Level Request information placed in the MySchool system and a variety of factors including number of rooms, schools returning to the same hotel, etc. All schools requesting an upgraded package will be notified on or about February 15th of their upgrade status so they may plan for and fill out the correct financial statement.
  • Hotel assignments are not finalized until approximately 7-10 days AFTER the rooming list deadline. After this is finalized, hotel contact information will be forwarded to your school.
  • ALL HOTELS (except the Headquarters) require GROUND TRANSPORT to get to the competition site..
  • Very few hotels have any form of "breakfast" worth calling a breakfast. Those that have one, the quality can vary GREATLY from year to year. Determination on whether a property is an UPGRADE or STANDARD hotel has very little to do with whether they have milk and donuts sitting out in the morning - it is an overall presentation of the hotel and the service you will receive. We STRONGLY recommend all team plan for giving youngsters food of YOUR choosing to ensure they eat well.
