Any water polo competition your USAWP Club is hosting other than a regular practice.
Do I need to sanction a practice scrimmage?
Practice scrimmages with two teams or less are covered with your club membership insurance policy. Any practice scrimmages with three or more teams need additional insurance (Event Sanction).
What is required to sanction an event?
You must have a current USAWP Club membership. You need to either fill out a Sanction Application or you can submit an event sanction online, through a club administrator. You can mail or fax your applications to the National office; 2124 Main Street, Suite 240, Huntington Beach, CA 92648 or (714) 960-2431.
How can I submit an Event Sanction Request?
If your club would like to sanction an event there are two ways to submit a sanction application...
1) Download an Event Sanction Application , fill out and mail/fax to the National Office.
2) The club administrator can log in to his/her personal USAWP Membership account and fill out an event sanction request by looking within the "Club Admin Area" tab on the left column and clicking on the "Event Sanction" option.
* If you are not sure of who the club administrator(s) are for your club, contact the National office by phone (714) 500-5445 or by email email@example.com.
Can a single event sanction cover multiple dates?
Yes, as long as the event dates are relating to the same event, and all dates are included on the sanction application. Example: A league that spans over the course of three weekends where results continue to accumulate until the final competition weekend. Tournaments should consist of no more than a 7-day span and Camps/Clinics/Leagues should not exceed 12 weeks in duration unless previously approved by USA Water Polo.
