Event Sanctions

USA Water Polo sanctions hundreds of events each year and is able to provide insurance coverage and support for each of these events. Any USAWP registered club has the ability to sanction events with our organization. An event sanction is considered any event that is not considered a "practice" and involves more than 2 clubs. These would include tournaments, leagues, clinics, camps and exhibitions.To learn more about this insurance policy as well as see some frequently asked questions regarding event sanctions, click here.
