About the Event
This is the inaugural year for the National Indoor Festival. It is modeled after the National Hockey Festival that takes place over Thanksgiving. Different age divisions have the opportunity to gather over a weekend to play indoor field hockey. The NIF will also run in conjunction with the 2022 World Hockey for men and women. Teams come from across the world to compete and hopefully we can watch some games. We will have to leave the evening of Thursday, Feb 17th due to flights on Friday not getting in until the evening. There will be a $200 non refundable deposit due by December 19th to secure your spot. Since this is a USAFH event the girls will need to stay at a USAFH approved hotel. Just like the Sunshine Showcase we will have 2 options:
Option 1: $600 Travel with the team and the cost includes hotel, car rental, snacks and 3 meals. FLIGHT IS NOT INCLUDED.
Option 2: Travel with parents. $450 - FLIGHT IS NOT INCLUDED.
Hotel: Tapestry Collection Founders Inn and Spa Virginia Beach. I have rooms booked for the girls. If you are traveling with parents here is the link to book rooms. Any of these hotels are fine. I would wait until the block expires on 12/14/21. More rooms will open up at that time.
Here is the flight the team/coaches are on:
Thursday Feb 17, 2022. Flight number 640 and connection flight 1249
Flying out of Hobby airport at 5:10pm and arriving in Richmond, VA 11:10pm
Sunday Feb 20th Flight Number 2352 with connection 2516
