Full Service Housing Required events require athletes to stay in partner hotel blocks. There are three exceptions to this requirement. Before submitting an exemption, please review the specific details explained below.

Make note: Select events have an expanded local radius or may have more approved exemptions than the list below. If your program is within the updated local radius, no action is required, as your gym is automatically considered local. If you qualify for an approved exemption not on the dropdown below, please select “living in close proximity,” and explain the exemption in the “additional information” box.

Events with an expanded radius are the following: Nation’s Choice Grand Nationals (Wisconsin Dells), ACA Grand Nationals (Fort Worth), USA All Star Grand Nationals (Anaheim), CANAM Grand Nationals (Myrtle Beach), Athletic Championships Chattanooga Nationals.

Exemptions for the 2023-2024 Season will not be accepted until the event is open for reservations. Please refer to our Housing Overview page linked HERE for dates. Any submissions prior to the corresponding opening dates will be disregarded.

If you have enough points to redeem them for an entirely FREE stay, you are allowed to do so. Please book the room through the hotel directly and upload a copy of your reservation showing that points were used to book your entire stay to the online form below. Please make sure to list the athletes name on your email so they are an approved exemption. Please note that just ‘receiving points’ for staying at a hotel does not qualify for an exemption. You must be redeeming for an entire free stay.


2-Day competitors within 75 miles and 1 day competitors within 150 miles from the competition are automatically considered LOCAL and do not require an exemption form to be filled out.

If your home is within the designated radius but your gym is outside of that radius, please fill out the exemption form.

If you are able to get a lower rate with a military or government discount, this will be accepted. Please book the room through the hotel directly and upload a copy of your reservation showing that a military/government discount was used to book your entire stay to the online form above. Please note, the hotel will require the military or government ID to be presented upon check-in, please have this information when you arrive.
