My player is going. Do I need to reserve a hotel room?

Yes. Cal Cup is a USA FH tournament and is therefor a “stay to play” event. This means that your player must stay in the team hotel.

  • U16 & U19 players: NO. You do NOT need to make a reservation for your player.
    Fly makes room reservations for all U16 & u19 players participating. U16 & U19 players will stay 3 or 4 to a room and be supervised by their team coach. All players are expected to stay w/the team in the hotel.
  • U14 players: YES. You will need to reserve a room – read on…
    We require all U14 players to travel and stay with a parent or guardian during Cal Cup. Parent/guardians are responsible for U14 reserving their player’s/family’s hotel room and transportation on-site. We do have a set of rooms set aside for Fly families. Contact Coach Anthony for reservation info.
  • Families accompanying U16/U19 players: YES. You will need to reserve a room.
    We reserve a block of rooms for club members at a pretty good rate. You make your reservations directly through the Posada Royale. Say that you are “Parent –  San Jose Fly” so that you get our good rate. You can check in on Friday as usual. The front desk has all of our team information.

TRAVEL

Players MUST travel down to LA on Friday (no games that day) and arrive at the team hotel at a reasonable time. Games start early Saturday morning.

All players make their own transportation arrangements to Simi Valley. Some players drive down w/family or friends. Some fly either w/family or with the team/coaches.

All coaches attending Cal Cup will fly down on Friday to Burbank Airport on a midday Southwest Airlines flight. Any player who is traveling alone and/or needs transportation to/from the airport, should book the coaches’ flight (or one immediately prior), and coaches will drive players from the Burbank airport to the hotel.
