How does my team reserve a team room?
CIS will do its best to assign each school a “team room.” In most cases your room will be shared with other teams. Also, since we provide these rooms free-of-charge, we have special “team room” rules, as follows:
TEAM ROOMS: Schools using team rooms and participating in our tournaments are expected to treat the space with respect and ensure that the room looks exactly as it did when you arrived as when you leave. The rearranging of furniture, bringing chairs into the hallway, eating or drinking in the rooms is strictly prohibited. Also, all borrowed team sets should be returned to the cafeteria by 2:45PM.
Schools that fail to follow these rules or cause damage to a room may forfeit being assigned team rooms for future events.
