Chaperoned team: A team where the parents do not room with their skater. Instead, a Jazz parent chaperone accompanies the team and is assigned responsibility for the skaters. Each chaperoned team has 4 adults who is responsible for managing 4-5 skaters. Jazz currently has two chaperoned teams - Intermediate and Junior.
Non-chaperoned team: A team where the parents travel and room with their skater. Jazz currently has three non-chaperoned teams - Synchro Skills, Pre-Juvenile and Juvenile.
Hotel travel coordinator: this is the parent volunteer that communicates team travel and hands out hotel room keys.
Housing Bureau: A independent organization that arranges all hotel accommodations on behalf of USFS. A housing bureau contracts with all of the hotels in the event city and fixes rates and requirements (2 night minimum). The Housing Bureau charges a non-optional fee for this service which is passed on to the skaters in the room rate. When a housing bureau is involved, the Club organizations have no discretion on the hotel assigned to them for the event.
