Links to Polk County accommodations can be found below. These suggestions may or may not be suitable for your team needs, and all teams and participating families are free to make whatever arrangements they choose.

Summary Report Needed from Team Administrators
To confirm our participating families have arranged accommodations in the county, we ask each team administrator to prepare a Housing Report summarizing the lodging for all the participating families in your program, and to submit this report by April 15th to the HWSA tournament administrator ([email protected]), who combines and submits them to Polk County the week of the tournament.
Each report should show the accommodation name, city, state, zip code, # of rooms/units, and # of nights. Examples are shown below of how to list various lodging types:
