Hotel Accommodations

US LAX Events & Travel Desk work to provide a streamlined hotel booking experience for all teams attending our Tournaments.  In doing so part of this effort requires that all non-commuting teams are required to book their hotels through Travel Desk in order to participate in the event. Commuting teams, those teams that are located within 60 miles of the event venue, are exempt from this policy. The Stay to Play hotel policy helps to ensure sufficient availability at quality hotels and the best available rates.  Please do not call the hotels directly to reserve your block.  Please book through the hotel link provided below.  

Rooms will book up quickly! To view available hotel options, click  HERE.

My Sport Seat Chair Rental

MySportSeat has partnered with LAX Events for the 2021 Rip The Wave tournament in South Bend, IN on July 17-18.  Our company offers daily and weekend outdoor chair rentals for destination youth sports tournaments.  
Our goal is to service attendees that either forgot to bring a portable chair to the event/tournament, or they are traveling long distances, and bringing a chair is not worth the time/struggle (due to air travel or an already full vehicle).  
The chairs we have are brand new.  They are light, easy to put up and take down, and each chair has an adjustable roof and beverage holder (plus room for storage underneath).  Our tents/kiosks are located at the major entry/exit points of the tournament so it makes it very easy for guests to pick up and return chairs.  


To reserve your chair(s) for Rip The Wave, please go to our website at
Once on the site, click the RESERVE YOUR SEAT link underneath the ChicagoLand Events icon. 
Please follow the instructions below.
