Press Release: HAAC Partnership

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) commissioner Lori Thomas has announced a three-year agreement with CSTT Sport Travel as the Official Accommodations Partner of the conference and its member institutions.

Under the agreement which begins this month, CSTT Sport Travel will assist in securing the appropriate number of accommodations to sufficiently house all road travel while guaranteeing low group rates. CSTT will provide coaches the opportunity to book by phone or online, and access to an online database to allow them to monitor rooming lists and accommodation information.

“Coaches dedicate their lives to build teams on and off the court. As commissioner, I want to find ways to relieve some workload while saving costs and this partnership can do that,” said Thomas. “Group rates are to be guaranteed to be the lowest and coaches will have online access to monitor accommodations. Once CSTT understands the hotel needs of each coach, then the coach will be able to turn over their schedule for CSTT to book their hotel needs for the season”.

CSTT Sport Travel has become an industry leader in event management and sports accommodations. Since its incorporation in 1998, CSTT has revolutionized the industry through innovative and thorough execution of events across North America.

“CSTT is proud to be the official accommodations partner of the Heart,” said Gary Curgin, president of CSTT Sports Management International. “We understand sports and team travel and look forward to working with all of the schools and coaches to make the process as easy as possible.”
