This page is a guide only. It contains recommendations from either TMs, Referees or Parents from previous seasons. Venues or official hotels may change for the current season so we recommend that you check the reglement’s before confirming any travel arrangements. If you are booking hotels before the reglement is out we advise you may want to consider booking with free cancellation as it is not guaranteed that competition details will stay the same.
