AIRPORT INFORMATION

McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS) is located directly in Knoxville and is approximately a 15 minute drive into Downtown Knoxville. 

 

For our families coming from Florida we highly recommend looking into Allegiant Airlines. They are an extremely cost effective way to travel to Knoxville from multiple Florida airports listed below. They do tend to be restrictive in terms of dates, but worth looking into. 

 

 Sanford (SFB), Destin/Fort Walton Beach (VPS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Punta Gorda/Fort Myers (PGD), Sarasota (SRQ), St. Pete/Clearwater (PIE), West Palm Beach (PBI)

HOST HOTEL

HOLIDAY INN DOWNTOWN KNOXVILLE

You will absolutely want to stay at the host hotel for this year's regional championships. The hotel is located in the heart of Downtown Knoxville, and is just a short walk to any of the phenomenal areas that Knoxville has to offer. Even better is that it is literally connected to the venue! Have breakfast in the restaurant, grab a quick coffee and pastry at the cafe, and then make your way down the stairs to the competitive arena! It doesn't get more convenient than that!
