Where will our team stay? Where should fans stay?

Teams are invited to stay in Paideia host family homes, often the venue for good memories for your team as well as for Paideia’s host families. We also know travel can be expensive and staying in host family housing (even on someone’s carpeted floor) can make the trip possible.  For those teams staying in family homes, showers will be available at the school after dinner on Saturday at prearranged times.  If this arrangement for taking showers might be problematic for your team, staying in a hotel might be the way to go.  More information below.


Host housing is offered for two nights and for players plus two coaches/chaperones only.   Host families usually cannot accommodate more than about 22 people, so if your team is larger, let’s talk, and we’ll see what we can do (paideiacup@gmail.com).  It might be necessary for us to split your team between two host family homes. Friends and family accompanying the team must plan on staying elsewhere. Make sure you indicate on your bid application if you will need team housing. Host family homes are usually located within 7 miles of the fields and the school.

Showers for teams staying with host families will be available at the school’s locker room facilities on campus on Saturday evening from 6:30-9:30 p.m. after dinner.  Please remember to bring a towel from home AND to bring your towel and change of clothing to the fields Saturday morning as your team will likely shower before returning to your home-away-from-home Saturday evening.  Teams can come to HQ on Saturday to pick up a shower schedule.  Showers will not be available at the school on Sunday after play because there is an event on campus posing a space conflict.  Showers for teams staying in family homes are located on our campus at 1509 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta  30307.


Every year several teams choose to stay at local hotels.  To get your bearings and plot your points, our fields are located at 1201 Clarendon Ave., Avondale Estates, 30002, approximately 20 minutes SE of our campus.
